Not really a review, but I just got this bag yesterday and thought I would take a few photos of it and give my thoughts.
I'll start by saying I LOVE TT bags, and have a gazillion of them. I have 5 Urban Disguise bags, 2 StreetWalker backpacks, 3 rollers, and a bunch of other misc things. I also have the Retrospective 5, Retrospective 10, Retrospective 30, and the Lens Changer 3. I really like my Retrospective 30 and use it all the time for things like engagement shoots. It looks great, I can stuff a ton of gear in to it, and it's pretty easy to shoot out of, but for me it's way to big for an everyday bag. The Retro 10 is smaller, but as a guy who uses 5D's with no grips and all primes, the 10 always felt like it was too big for my gear - so I don't really use it much. The Retro 5 is great for when I want to carry a body & 2 lenses, but it is a little small for much more than that.
When the Retro 7 was announced, I knew it was going to be as close to a perfect bag as I could probably hope for. When it showed up yesterday, I wasn't disappointed. Just like the rest of the Retro series, it's built well and looks great. My typical carry-around kit is usually my 5D3, 50L, 24L II & 85L II. This bag can pretty easily take all 3 of those, and a 600EX Speedlight (though it's a little tight with the lens hoods on). I could probably also stuff something like my 24L II, 50L, 85L II & 14L II, but I didn't try. Again, it might be a little tight with the hood on all of the lenses.
Here's some photos showing the bag with the 3 lenses above and the 600EX-RT - if you have any questions let me know.
Lots of space in the front pocket:
Rear pocket fits the iPad 2 with plenty of space (even with the bag loaded up with gear)
And if you're like me, you might worry about bouncing your iPad off of your hip when it's in the rear pocket. Well, I'm happy to say that it also fits in the front pocket with ease. Which also means that you could carry an iPad AND an 11" MacBook Air.
Anyone want to buy a Retro 10?
