I remember seeing a photo of a belt system of lense cases ( I think it may have been Ron Resnick), Anyway I'm considering trying to put one together.

Does anyone here use One ? If so do you like it? is it easy on the back? What brand ? Photos? pros & cons Etc...


Was also wondering if the nikon case for the 17-55 is like the one for the 70-200 (has belt loop & is rugged)?

From the photo It looks like its a soft cloth pouch w/drawstring and not conducive for belt use.

Thanks for your help.

The case for the 17-55 is just what you described and thus not suitable for belt use. I do not use such a system (yet) but I know of a good one I am considering
thinktankphoto.com has a great system. I have several of their products already and they are fantastic in design and in quality.
Flew was going to give them a look, but not sure if he did or not.

I have a Kinesis system, which I like, but I think if I was buying again, I would try the thinktankphoto one. Probably not an issue for you, but the Kinesis sytem fits a woman better than the LowePro or Domke.

Thanks Paul, or should I say Monty.
Distributing the weight , flexability and comfort is what im looking for . My bag ,vest, and Backpack all have their place ,but I believe this may work better for my shooting jaunts.

Looking like a geek - well - at my age I figure im going to look like a geek anyway and my back & neck could use a rest.
