thanks for the quick review... wondering if you could post a photo of the Retro 7 next to the Retro5. i currently have the 5 and want to see how much bigger the 7 is.
thanks!
Mark

Might sound daft but what is it looking like when you wear it. Not to bulky..?

Ok, so I took a few quick comparison photos. They're not great, but you get what you pay for. :D

Wow timnosenzo, your worse then me. I had a 5, 2 10's and a 30 and I have the 7 on order.

Actually sold 1 10 and a sale pending to sell the other today. I may even sell the 5 as it seems the 7 is pretty much what I was hoping for all along. I am actually going to slim by bag lineup down to a Retro 7 and 30.

I know it, I have a serious bag problem. :oops:

I think I am going to sell the R10 though - I rarely used it before, and now with the R7 I can't imagine when I would use it. I think the R10 (and 20) is great if you're using big zoom lenses and gripped bodies, but for someone like me who just wants to carry and regular sized body and a few primes, my gear swims in it. It's too big for 3 lenses (with one attached to the body), but too small for 4.

I guess I have a bag problem too but I really like these bags. I too go with a pretty small setup and I sold my 2.8 zooms and I don't ever use a grip so I don't need a huge bag. With my smaller kit the R10 is a bit big and the 5 is a bit small. The 30 is great when I use 2 bodies or as my home base.

Its a bummer because I had an R10 in black and I really liked it in PS (the PS makes it feel more compact and I have no idea why) so I recently got one and now the 7 comes out. Just placed my 7 PS order last night.


Is it worth it to keep the 5 and 7? When I shoot with just a prime or 2 I like the 5 but not sure its really needed with the 7.

I Hope they don't make a R-6 :-}

Interesting that the 7 looks bigger than the 10. Debating between these two.

The 7 is actually a bit wider than the 10 - looks like by .5":

R7 dimensions:
ID: 12.5” W x 8.8” H x 5” D
ED: 13.5” W x 9.5” H x 7” D

R10 dimensions:
ID: 12” W x 9.5” H x 6” D
ED: 13” W x 10.5” H x 7” D

The 7 is wider by 0.5 inches.

I think so - the R5 is really small, great for when I just want to carry one or two lenses.

Yea, I am going to hang on to the 5 for a while and see. It is very discrete and I can fit my 70-300L (no mounted) inside so its a pretty handy bag especially when I just go with my 24/50 combo.
