Hello all,

I'm looking for "medium" size should bag. I need to fit my:

D2X w/ 70-200, 28-70 and flash
or
D2X w/ 28-70, 12-24 and flash

This is more of a quick pack and go bag. I have ProSystem 14 Tamrac bag which hold most of my equipment and backpack which is excellent for hiking. I need to find something smaller which will accommodate minimum staff for quick photo sessions.

So far I'm looking into

- Tenba D12
- Stealth Reporter 400 or 500 AW

I would recommend a Domke F2!

Has the Length to fit the D70 (or D2H) with 70-200 VR attached, and you can still use 1/2 of the 4-compartment insert for 2 Lenses/Flash!

I have made some costume-made insert myself and love this Bag!

actually I carry in it:

D70
70-200 VR with Hood
Tamron 28-75 f2.8 with Hood
Tokina 12-24 DX with Hood
50 f1.8
SB800 with diffuser
Canon 500D
Some filters in Box
12 AA recharcheable
Spare Batteries for D70
Kenko pro 300 1.4x
Flash cable
and lots more

I can store the Camera in it with every Lens attached!

Hope I could help!

Thanks for the info. I was planning on ordering this bag on Wednesday when B&H re- opens. IS it sturdy?

Well that depends!

It has a very sturdy bottom that you can take out or leave in.

The Bag itself is like thick canvas! But without Bottom and insert it is very soft, but the material gives good protection!

The 4-padded insert is very well padded, but you can leave each padding of the insert out or in.

You can customize it like you need it!

Jay,

Check these guys out. I just ordered the TZ600, which is probably bigger than what you are looking for, but they have a pretty good selection, and their prices are very good. I do have a couple of small bags from them, and they are nice. Their service is pretty good too.

Carmen,

Don't tell me that.... :cry:

I agonized over which one to get, and finally opted for the TZ600 over the TZ500. It is big though. Which one do you have?

Not sold anymore

Mine is over a year old and is very similar to the TZ600, and is the same dimensions, but it did not come with a padded laptop sleeve. I keep my PB in a SF bag. It was only $96 at that time. I can see the increase with the included laptop sleeve.

As I stated before, I am going to purchase the Domke F 2 when B & H opens tomorrow. I am going for the sand color. I want to see what is in the bag. It will hold my D70 w/kit lens, SB 800, 50mm and 28-200mm for a cruiise I am taking in a month.

I have the Velocity 9, but it is a pain to get into. It is however a great bag for protecting your stuff. Solid.

Same here.

Stealth Reporter 600 AW arrived. Great bag. I can't imagine having anything smaller. D2X w/ sb-800, 12-24 mounted, 70-200 on the side and space for 28-70 (*waiting :) ).

Domke J2 It is water proof Great to work out of. Had one for 20 Years and would you believe it wore out. :lol: I have 10 assorted bags and I still go back to the Domke bag. It is for the working photographer.

Love my Domke F2, too, but find it too hard to store all the oversized lens shade. Anyone has good advise on how to store them in the bag?
