The next lens I will be getting is the Canon 100-400mmL. I am trying to figure out which backpacks can hold a 20D + 100-400mm attached and still have a separate compartment for misc items (cloths, food). The Tamrac 7 series doesn't seem to be big enough. The "show me your bag" thread shows the Lowepro Mini Trekker AW (II) will hold the lens attached but there is not a separate compartment for misc items. Any suggestions out there or is this not possible.
Thanks.

I have the Lowepro minitrekker and am waiting to receive my 100-400 lens.

There is a pocket on the front of the backpack where You can have some items. I ahve had a sweater and a 550ex flash in that pocket so its not big. So depending on what You want to bring with you it may fit in that pocket.

I have Quantaray Pro and it holds my D30+100-400, also holds a tripod on the side, and some more. The size is just about the same a a regular backpack. I think I ordered mine from Ritz or Adorama.

lowepro computrekker can do that easily and you will still have room for personal items in the front compartment as well as 4-5 other lenses, flash and misc items...

agreed....my computrekker holds it very nicely, either on or off camera. plus its got good space for other camera/lens stuff plus a bit of non-camera stuff space (which isn't always common on camera bags)

Are you refering to the minitrekker AW or classic. Or do both basically have the same capacity?

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. All the input is helpful in choosing a bag.

Thanks. It seems like they are pretty close but was just trying to figure that out.

Yes I think the main difference is the all weather cover in AW.

I have the minitrekker and computrekker plus. I know it would fit it the computrekker Plus. I can fit my 70-200 w/hood attached to the 20D in the minitrekker...I think.

In the computrekker plus, you've got as much room as you need.

I once fit:

20D with 70-200L IS
100-400L
24-70L
2 580's
100 macro
50 1.4
rocket blower
pec pads and eclipse


...and that's just in the MAIN compartment! and yet, it was a comfortable size to carry. Heavy as heck when filled, but you have to expect that.
