So I need advice on the Crumpler 6 and 7 million dollar bags. Unfortunately, I can't find them in stores anywhere near me to test them out myself, so I need advice from those who own them.

What I'm looking to carry: 5D w/24-105 attached, 70-200 f/4 IS, 135L, Sigma 50, and possibly a 580 speedlite.

I'm leaning toward the 6 million dollar bag because, for me, smaller is better (unless its very stuffed). I just don't know if that will be big enough. I've looked at pictures of the 7 million dollar bag and it looks bigger than I want, but its so hard to tell from pictures.

The bag will be used for when I'm walking through the city and just around town. I have a flipside 300, but I wanted something I could walk around with and have easier access to the camera. Also, I'm open to suggestions of other bags if you think it might fit my needs better. This will be my first messenger style bag.

all those lenses might be tight in there.. i'm not sure how big the 135L is but i have the 6mdh

5d II with 24-105
70-200 2.8 IS (bigger than your f/4 IS)
580 ex II
canon 50/1.4

all fit in there comfortably

have you checked some reviews? www.cambags.com (external link)

i know of a store by UCLA that carries them if you wanted to check them out one day.

if you're looking to carry all that, I'd go for the 7MDH. I have the 6MDH and I can fit my 5DMKII with the 24-70 attached, 70-200 f/4IS with hood reversed on one side and a 16-35 f/2.8 on the other. No room for the flash unless I really jam everything in tight. I still haven't found the perfect bag yet, but the closest is my lowepro classified 160AW. Fits my 5DMK2 with my 70-200 f/4 IS attached with hood reveresed, 24-70 + 16-35 stacked on top of each other and my 430EX. Only problem is I can't bring the other two hoods because it's too tight with them on.

Thanks for the advice. Do you have any idea how the Crumpler 7 mill. bag compares to the Domke f-3x as far as capacity goes?
