Opinions on potential damage from holster type bags?
Aug 19, 2013

Hello,

I have a Tamrac Aero 3330 holster bag that I bought a few years ago but have never used. I recently found that my Sony A77 with 16-50 lens fits perfectly in the bag. However, I can't help but be a bit concerned that the heavy body weight of the A77 will put a lot of stress on the lens and potentially cause some damage. (I currently use a Nikon bag that holds the camera and lens horizontally). Am I being illogical with this concern, or do you think there is some validity to the idea that the lens could become damaged? Thanks all.

Here is the configuration of the bag (from Tamrac's website):
