yung padding nilagay ko sa ilalim ng 70-200 for additional padding lang... you have lots more space sa triangular compartment sa taas ng bag, may front pocket pa... :)

got it for 2800 sa Cathay sa Singapore... pinabili ko lang :)

meron din akong velocity 7 haven't tried putting a 70-200 2.8 in it, pero kasya ang 70-200 f4... mas gusto ko yung slingshot kasi I find it easier to get things out... I also find the lowepro more rigid... yung velo7 ko kasi parang malambot :)

hamak na masmura ang velo7... 2700 ata or something like that... if you want something bigger, get the velo9... but if you can source a bag from singapore, sobrang sulit yung slingshot 200 :)

if you're getting stuff from Cathay, just make sure na may stock sila... yung slingshot ko was the last one on their inventory... got it december, tapos early feb na ata sila nagkastock ulit... :)

I just e-mail Cathay in Singapore to make sure they have stocks and for a quote.
email@cathayphoto.com.sg
They still have the best prices for Lowepro gear, comparing them even to B&H and (gaaah!) Infomaxx. I prefer Lowepro because of their look & design, but I'm sure Tamrac has a pretty good system as well. It might just be a matter of preference and where you intend to buy the stuff.
Kata Bags look interesting, but aren't available locally.

I've used my Lowepro Mini Trekker for 6 years already. It has been with me through the roughest locations and has been protecting both my personal equipment and the company's (hehehe)... I also use the lowepro slim utility belt coupled with a film bag. i would stuff lots of other here lens cleaning kit, blower, filters.... ect. My only reason for choosing lowepro is cuz of the quality of their fabric...

(Post ko na rin ulit ito dito)...

Personally, I prefer top loading bags such as LowePro's Stealth Reporter 600AW and TopLoader 75AW. But what keeps those two bags at bay for me these days is LowePro's Trim Trekker. It's one of the few photo gear bags that offer two methods for strapping, either as a backpack or as a sling back (currently configured as the latter for quick access).

Aside from having provisions for carrying a tripod in the front, what I find really convenient is the slide drawer storage at the bottom (perfect fit to a 550EX, stoffen, off-shoe flash cable and slave flash) which is neatly separated from the top compartment where you can fit a cam body w/ grip and lens attached, also about 3-4 more lenses inside (only 3 if I lug along a 100-400mm IS). There's a large zippered pocket in the front where I keep a Lumiquest Omni Bounce, extra batteries, CF cards, filters, etc. Additionally, I've looped velcro straps on both sides of the bag to accommodate LowePro's lens case system for extra storage.

I'm not sure if Tamrac carries an equivalent to this bag, here's a pic...
"Photography in my perspective... is a succession of incessant attempts at capturing life's simple poetry or its subtle paradoxes. And it's that fellow peering thru the viewfinder, who decides how, which, where and when it's time; it's his tenacity and his sensitivity that makes him push that button... and never it has ever been the other way around."
