    With room to expand.

    Current kit is small bit growing. Need something that will hold 1-2 bodies, 2-3 lens, a flash, 1L H2O bottle, cards, small notebook(old school, not PC), a few other odds & ends.

    Prefer a backpack style. Thought about a sling but do not like some of the reviews concerning weight distribution. Price range about $75-$125.

    Any suggestions?

    I just got this Tamrac when I bought my last lens. I had been using a LowePro MicroTrekker and I adore it but I just had to have something bigger... I also have a monster LowePro bag that I can't lift when loaded.

    This Tamrac is awesome. I have seven lenses, a big rocket blower, various filters and other junk in it with plenty of room to spare. I also have room for my laptop, mouse, card reader, various cords and cables plus my books for a class I am taking.

    It is big but I think it i about perfect for me. :)

    Lowepro Photo Trekker AW II backpack and a Lowepro Stealth reporter 650 AW. If I need to walk with all the gear I use the backpack if I can put the bag down then I use the stealth reporter. Remember it is all nice and good have all your gear until you have to carry around.

    This was suggested on another forum. I think I'm going to get it.

    Canon 200

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    The Tamrac is much more comfortable than the Canon bag. I have a Tamrac Expedition 5, that is very comfortable with my equipment:

    Canon 30D w/ Batt grip
    70-200 F2.8 IS
    24-70 F2.8
    10-22
    Tamron 18-200
    Canon 580EX and a Point and shoot.

    You may need a larger one but I highly recommend the Tamrac Expedition.

    -Mike.

    I have read more than once that the Canon bags do not have adequate padding to protect your gear with drops, falls and the like. :shocked:
