I recently purchased an F2 and have a question. With a 30D+grip and 16-35L attached (with hood) in the bag, there doesn't seem like there's much room left over. I can't see how another 30D+grip and 70-200 IS attached (with hood reversed) would also fit in it. Or was the bag not designed to have lenses attached to the body?

Just wondering...

Replace the standard 4-compartment insert with a Domke 720-220 2-compartment insert and you'll have no problems. The body with the 70-200 horizontally in the main compartment, the body with the 16-35 vertical in one of the insert compartments. I use the 3-compartment 720-230 in all my Domkes (except the F-3x which doesn't need an insert).

Thanks, Jon. I was looking at the 720-200 2-place compartment as a alternative but wanted to make sure it would work.

IIRC the velcro on those is on the short ends; I put velcro on one of the long sides so I could fasten it to the back of the bag instead of across it. But that was probably 25 years ago - they were still making the inserts out of canvas.

I use an f2 and manage to fit my 40d w/grip and 70-200 f2.8L on it's side, and my 30d [no grip] with 17-55 f2.8IS face down in a 720-220 2 compartment insert, i also squeeze my flash (430ex) in next to the 40d 70-200 combo.....

I find it fits but its a tight fit and i don't find it easy to work with, as already mentioned, the insert has the the velcro on the wrong sides so you will need to get the sewing needle out and make a small modification there.... my only other complaint is i'm unable to fit the 17-55 in the insert with the hood on so the hood ends up taking up space in one of the end pockets..... i'm thinking of getting the f1-x instead now for a bit more room, but i will probably keep the f2 for when i don't need alot of equipment.

Yeah, I saw that too. Seems kinda silly that Domke doesn't attached velcro on all sides.

Nothing a little 5-minute epoxy won't fix on the 2-place insert. ;)

The bag to look at is the J1. The thing is a monster and is a lot taller than the F1/F2. Unfortunately, it's only available in Ballistic Nylon.

Then check the equally tall F-7 or F-804.
