Re: Suggestions and which backpack do you use?

I use a LowePro Flipside 400 and in that I carry A77, 11-18, 16-80, 70-300G, 500mm mirror and Sigma 105 macro. I can mount any lens on the front and still fit the others in.

There is still a spare slot destined for a fish-eye one day!

No lap top compartment but I can fit a netbook down the front for travel. I attach a waterproof jacket using the straps across the top when out and about.

They now make a bigger version, the 500, which may suit you better.  Or the flipside sport range which I see can carry a laptop.

The flip side design is great because you don't have to lay the back of the pack that goes against your body down in the mud to open it!

If you are paranoid about theft in cities the flip side stops people unzipping the camera compartment when in crowds.

I have used mine for several years now and the fact I have no desire to replace it is the highest recommendation I can give as if something does not work for me it soon gets replaced.

I have several other camera bags gathering dust.
