    I've decided it's time to replace my very old (smaller) camera bag. I want to be able to put my camera with my 70-200VR mounted into it, along with my 28-70 (beast), and have just enough room left over for an SB800. Can't do a backpack due to a bad left-side neck problem, but could sling something over my right shoulder.
    Any suggestions?
  2. Crumpler 7miilon will work like a champ
  3. Lowepro Sling 300? Vienna Pics has one, looks useful. The 200 model won't take the 70-200VR.

  4. What he said and there is a slightly used one for sale here.

    With Dave's recommendation, I did a little research on this Crumpler 7 Million, and whle looks non-camera bag-like, and does hold a 2x w/70-200 attached, it won't carry the additional lenses simultaneously. Various reviewers made that statment, and showed pics.
    I ended up going with Rich's recommendation of the Lowepro Slingshot 300AW. Got it on Ebay from "Sell-n-Send" for $94.95 and free shipping.

  6. Hey Steve,

    After you receive the bag how about give some feedback on how the bag works out for the D2x 70-200 and 28-70. It seems I am always looking for a better bag that will accommodate the D2x/70-200vr plus an additional lens.

    I have a bunch of bags and packs. My most recent addition was the Lowepro Slingshot 300AW. I like it a lot. Yes, it will hold the D2Xs with the 70-200 mounted. I usually carry it with the 28-70 mounted in the main compartment, the 70-200 in the top compartment, and a bunch of other lenses surrounding the camera (12-24, 85PC. 85 f/1.4, 105DC, 50 f/1.4, 1.4x TC, plus a Sekonic incident meter) and the SB800 in its case sitting on top of the camera/lens. Accessories like the polarizer and 500D along with aspare battery, pen and tablet and business cards go in the little front compartment.

    This stuff weighs a ton, but I like having choices when I'm out and about. You ought to see my BIG kit! :biggrin:

    I'm also looking for a bag for this exact combination of d2 body with 70-200 attached, one more lens and sb-800.

  9. I'm hoping to find something similar but after going through 5 different shoulder bags and two sling bags my bad back and I have decided that I’m going to have to go with a small backpack.
  10. If Kiesel ever relaunches the MX400 bag, it's exactly what you're looking for. I use mine to carry a D200 w/grip and 70-200 attached, Beast, SB-800, 10.5 fisheye, 50 1.8, D70 body, and a TC. I could fit more into it, but I really don't want to carry that much stuff around.

    Let me know what you find. I have a small lowepro right now, and it already can't fit my 70-300. I like backpacks, so that would be beneficial to me as well. I'd like to be able to carry around the 18-55, 70-300, 50/1.8 (so small that it's likely not a problem), and eventually the camera with either 12-24 or 18-200 attached. Oh yeah, and I'd like it to be waterproof, too.
