Yes, Manfrotto customer service is very good. That has been my experience as well.

Something I didn't like about this bag was that the 70-200 can't be stored with the hood on.

I ended up with a Clik elite escape 1st gen, but it may not be as comfortable. I wish I'd taken the time to compare bags in use.

Hood on, as in extended (longer), or in the reverse position?

How is the storage for small items - memory cards, batteries, cleaning kits, color checkers, remote triggers, etc ?

Although I never stored it with the hood extended, I just had to check (No problem whatsoever with hood reversed)...Zips up fine, but I'd be careful since there's a lot of stress on the eyecup (and not much padding in that location)...fine for hiking where it would either be on your back or laying flat when you need something, but bad for traveling where the bag gets bounced around.

Perhaps if you reconfigure the dividers such that the body is up and hood down, it may fit better (I'd check, but I need the bag today :)). There are enough variable-sized pockets on the top/sides for the little things as well.

Hope that helps...
