Bump on an older post, but this looks like a pretty good starter pack. I think I'll pick it up later tonight. And I guess I should ask first...will my Rebel XS fit OK in this bag? Noob here so only have the lens that came with the kit. Eventually I'll start building up.

Yes it will, I fit my XSi with the 18-55 and a 50mm easily. Also some cleaning supplies and the charger/batteries. Once you get a telephoto or flash, you may need to start looking for a new bag though.

Do you suggest I go with the 200 then, rather than getting the 100 now and having to bump up later? I don't plan on buying or carrying too much gear for a while as I am a beginner.

The 100 is nice if you don't plan on carrying more then 2-3 small lenses (I think the 55-250 IS fits well). I didn't move to my flipside 300 until I got my 70-200 f4. For me, I could fit my XSi with the 70-200 f4 mounted, a flash, kit lens and cleaning supplies but the weight on one shoulder did it for me.

So if you don't plan on buying heavier gear for a while or if you don't want a bigger bag, you could very well get a 100 and resell it later once you figure out what you'll be carrying on a regular basis. You could also get the 200 although the extra space might seem excessive. Or you could try something like the kata 3n1 100 or 200, if you ever find the weight to be an issue, it has another strap to become a backpack.

Thanks, just got back with the 100. It's the perfect size. You are right, the 200 is a bit much as a starter bag. I do like this type of bag though with the single strap. It's great when on the motorcycle as it sits on the pillion as opposed to a backpack which tends to be heavier on the shoulders when riding.

I appreciate the help!

It started out with a bad experience of a canon 70-200 2.8 non is, then i tried a friends canon 24-70 2.8 and found it to be as good in terms of image quality compared to another friends sigma 24-70 for lots lots more money.
The focus was faster on the Canon 24-70 compared to sigma, but not by a mile as the price difference suggest.
The 10-20 i bought since i figured i wanted to go wider then 24 and the other two lenses hadn't disappointing me.
The 30 and 50 where bought based on reviews and images samples from this site, and they are real sweet :)

I'm the same. I love Sigma and most my lenses probably will be in the future. Had the 10-20 but the F2.8 on the Tokina is so0o0o0 amazing and has helped but if I need money, I won't hesitate to sell the Tokina for the Sigma and get some cash.

Nice collection of Sigmas up there! I would like to add a couple more to my collection :)

Here is my setup. I left a couple things out but its a good size to carry around. And for people wondering what bag it is, I have no idea! I can't find any info on the bag (I didn't look really hard) and it's about 20 years old I believe.

Fancier backpack: http://cgi.ebay.com …34a4&_trksid=p3​286.c0.m14 (external link)
Search eBay for "camera backpack".


Safrotto lens pouch: http://cgi.ebay.com …05ba&_trksid=p3​286.c0.m14 (external link)
Search eBay for "Safrotto lens pouch"; comes in 6 different sizes.


The quality of the Safrotto Domke clone is very good. Nice thick canvas material. Sturdy metal clips. Very good padding inside. Search eBay for "camera canvas" to find them ;)

Thanks for the links. I think I will get one of the Fancier Backpack later for just $39 they are good buy. I just got the Domke F2 from B&H yesterday and the canvas is just like the Safrotto as mentioned below. I have one of the Safrotto too and may later get the FX-1 clone later..

Here is my review of the Safrotto bag I got sometime ago:
