The NOVA bag is nice. The largest one fits my 70-200 2.8 IS vertically and can fit a gripped dslr. I can't fit everything into 1 bag, needing 2 since I bring 4 lenses 2-3 flashes with me for weddings. So I have my Domke F-802 for the 2 camera bodies and the NOVA everything else.

great find! Thx

the gripped body does not fit in this bag.

I am also looking into this "Crumpler 6 Million Dollar Home Camera Bag" which also takes my griped 7D if I don't feel like carrying it on my neck.

The UD-35 is designed for a gripped body, as is the large UD-70 Pro. The rear wall of the camera compartment can be adjusted to share the top few inches of the computer section to accommodate a gripped/pro body. It will also allow storage of a camera mounted to the longer 70-200 lens. The front expandable pocket will also hold a gripped/pro body (no lens).

Lowepro ProMag2

Well padded, contoured shoulder strap (I wear it cross shouldered). A waist belt so you can distribute the weight and swing the bag behind you, if needed. No messenger style flap on top which would only get in the way when changing lenses.

I can carry 5 lenses, a gripped a 5DII, an an 580 flash inside, with any of the 5 lenses mounted on the body. The longest lens in my bag is a 70-200 f4IS. The bag is 10" deep.

I shoot events and love the bag.

Check it out at Lozeau.

Great bag and LOTS OF ROOM...TOO MUCH lol. thats a little to big of a bag.

Also I am convinced that the messenger type bag with flap is way faster/easier to use than lowepro bags with zippered top.

I am very close to deciding on the Crumpler 6 Mil. or maybe the 7 Mil.

The long flap will keep getting in the way. You don't have to keep the top of the Lowepro zippered when shooting. I leave it unzippered.

Also, you are one lens short from filling the bag, so I doubt it is too big. I wish it was smaller but I can't imagine a smaller bag, unless you removed the padding, that could hold 5 lenses, vertically, with one of those a 70-200 and mounted on a gripped body. You can't pour 2 liters of water into a one liter bottle ;-)a

The Lowepro is also rigid enough so when worn it's quite easy to remove or put back a lens. A softer(er) bag will be a PITA.

Very Good and important point.I could see how much of a PITA that would be. I would be forced to remove the bag to insert a bigger len.

Ok You have convinced me. Yeah the Lowepro is best designed. I am sure the extra space will come in handy later on.

the price is right too!

Thx

Like I said...check it out at Lozeau before you commit. Bring your gear with you.

Think Tank Speed Racer, belt/shoulder bag, holds a gripped body with 70-200 2.8 attached, can hold 1 or 2 other lens and a flash plus other accessories.
