Nada...see my thread. That's an easy fit.

20 w/ 70-200 attached in middle. 17-50 on one side and 100 on top. 420EX can go in the middle as well, just remove one flap and use the 70-200 in that area, the 420 goes behind the other. Now you still have the "hidden pockets", the front pocket, and a whole side left to use.

What he means is the 17-50 and the 100 on the right side, one in the back and one in the front. You can also squeeze your flash in the middle with the camera and yes, then you still have a whole right side. If you have short lenses, such as the 15mm, then you can actually place them on top of one another... This should be an easy fit. I have room to spare and you see what's in mine...(And the 85L is a beast!)


5D3 | 16-35L | 45 TS-E | 50L | 85L | 100L | 135L | 24-70L | 70-200 II L | 580s | Zero, TT & Crumplers | and an X100! :D

That or you can lay one own, fold the flap down then put the 100 on top.

That's the setup I've been using so far.

The 100 is much taller than the 17-50, so it sits a little wierd, since I can't put much on top of it. Also, having the 70-200 F/2.0 mounted on my camera with the hood reversed fits in the center, but really makes me stretch to close the bag using the plastic clasp.

Anyway, I sold my 420EX, so I'm awaiting a new 580exII, and I'm waiting for the tamron 1.4 TC and Canon 28mm to arrive, then I can try to arrange some permanent packing configuration.

Thanks.

Hi everyone. I have a question requarding the 7MDH bag. I currently own a 30D with kit lens, 70-200 2.8IS, 85 1.8, 1.4x extender and 400 5.6. I am probably somewhere down the line will be adding 1-2 more smaller lenses. I currently have the lowepro slingshot 200 and everything does not fit. I have looked and read at a lot of posts and its still hard to tell if it will all fit. Thanks and have a nice day.

Yipeeee, I picked up the medium/light blue 6MDH yesterday (already use a 5MDH red) and would like to check out a 4MDH. I love these things, and no one identifies them as camera bags even when they see me take my camera out of it. Very comfortable to wear for long periods.

In my 7MDH I use to have a Sigma 70-200 2.8, Sigma 50-500, 1DMKII, 430EX, 10-20, and 28-75..I was also able to cram the 85 1.8 in there as well but it took some work..

Where are people getting the smaller/accessory type bags, like the Bundle/Thirsty Al?

All the bigger vendors I've looked at tend to just have the xMDH and larger bags.

The John Thursday JT70 is the size of the one I have posted in here. The JT50 is slightly smaller, more like a Thirsty Al L.

I really need to look into the various products, some of these I've never even heard of.

I'm basically looking for a few specific solutions:

a.) an external bag/pouch, that I can fit my 580EXII into, and attach to the side of my existing 7MDH

b.) something for batteries, I usually carry 8 AA batteries, and 2 camera batteries

c.) a wallet for memory cards, usually 3 or 4 CF cards

d.) eventually some sort of filter wallet.

a)Not owning a 580 can't say for sure, but flipped differently I'm sure it can. My Crumpler Bundle (Large) holds my 430EX and can hold 8AA backups in the front pouch which attaches tot he side.

b) My Thirsty Al (Medium) holds 3 BP-511's easily and very nicely.

c) I find wallets useless although I shoot weddings so I prefer just reaching into my poacket an grabbing one. There is a nice Lowepro wallet and I think Kata has one similar to mine posted in this thread. Can also be used for AA's

d) Go on ebay. I have one for my 18-50 (67mm) being my main portrait lens.

This guy is awesome and the filters are great! My Hoya I have on my 70-200 actually affects it more than the OEM filter I have on my 18-50.

The ultimate "bare essentials" bag, this bag can carry just everything you want especially for starters with camera, kit lens, flash, and nifty as most have.

As you can see very organized with plenty of room. I have 4 AA's in a case that can go in the zippered area, they're just all being used right now.

There's a mesh pocket at the top for whatever that closes over the gear. I just threw in a remote to show what could fit nicely.
