Re: Transporting 600 f4

I have a 600 VR and it just fits, without the hood ( which you should pack in your checked bag ) in the Think Tank AIrport International. I can actually put the 200-400 in with the 600. This leaves little room for anything else. So you need a shoulder bag - I suggest the Think Tank Urban Dissguise 60, which holds 2 bodies, 70-200 2.8, other smaller lenses, laptop. The TT AIrport International looks small, and is less conspicuous than other bags.

The problem is becoming the weight of the carry-ons. I am going to Brazil soon, on an Airbus 330, a plane with great overhead storage. But the airline has limited carry-ons to 10 lbs. The bag alone weighs nearly that much. If they check the weight, I will remove stuff from the bag and carry it on my shoulder orin the pockets of a jacket I carry with me just for that purpose.
Good luck and have a great trip.
