    I am looking for a camera bag that will fit D80 with one zoom lens. The lens size is 78mmX133mm or 3.4in X 5.1 in. (similar size to Nikon 24-70 lens).

    Something similar to this: http://www.amazon.com/Lowepro-Toplo...?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1216674879&sr=8-25

    If you are using one with D80 body (or bigger) and 24-70 lens (or bigger) please let me know the brand and model so I can get one.

    P.S. I went to all camera shops where I live and could not find one that fit that size of lens.

  4. i must say... that is one cool website.
     
  5. 2 good sites. Any personal reviews?
     
  6. I like my Crumpler Six Million Dollar Home for my D-80 with 80-200 2.8 zoom, one Speedlight, and a moderate sized second lens, plus associated small junk. It might be a tad larger than you really need at the moment, but once you commit to carry a shoulder bag, it seems wise (to me at least) to err on the slightly too large side rather than get a bag that is too small, especially if you later decide that carrying a ultra wide angle lens, for example, is a wonderful idea or that you just can't get along anymore without a flash.

    i have a 6 million dollar bag as well.
    fits a D80 + 16-85VR, 24mm f/2.8 35mm f/2, 50mm f/1.8, Voigtlander 58mm f/1.4and a SB600.
    but you gotta find some more dividers to divide up the large spaces for small primes.
    i don't usually bring them altogether, it'll fit D80+16-85VR, SB600, and 2 small primes easily.

    I also have a European version of crumpler, Pretty Boy XL.
    it's a nice Body + 2 lens / Body + 1 lens + flash bag.
    it'll fit D80 + 16-85VR and a prime, or a flash easily.

    that's a SB600 and a 16-85VR.
    i don't have another camera body, so can't show how it looks with D80 in it, but it'll fit with the 16-85VR mounted.

    i have the 7 million for my d200 and it fit with the 70-200 attached to it, but the only thing i dont like about the 7 million is that with everything loaded in the bag, anf u grab the top handle the side tend to like open up

    I have a Tamrac Velocity Sling bag. D40 with 18-200 w/hood, SB600, extra camera and flash batteries, sto-fen, ABBC, memory cards and room to spare. 8x should work great for your needs.

  12. It is, but it is TOTALLY useless to the photographer, at least last time I was there about a year ago. Cutesy names (or dumb ones, depending on your perspective) but no way to quite figure out what you can fit inside. Crumpler bags used to be so severely overpadded that the the internal dimension was tiny relative to the monstrous outside dimensions, I think that the have fixed that over the past year or two. I think that their standard backpacks and messenger bags are nice, but the photo bags are not my cup of team. I myself have turned to Kata, use the T-214 when I am going to be on foot in the city all day long (a 70-200 will fit by itself in the bag, and so will a D200 with the Sigma 10-20, Nikon 17-55, or Nikon 18-200 attached, with a bit of room to spare for a filter stack.

    I use a Tamrac backpack with D80 , lenses and stuff . Works just fine, confortable, well paded, good divisions. I have bought at Central Camera - Chicago. Take a look at their website.
