Hey folks, maybe some of you can turn me on to a certain type of bag, I have my D700 with grip, and a "L" bracket, my lens set up for 90& of my shooting is my Nikon 20 35 2.8, 50 1.4 G lens and 85 1.8 G lens and a older Nikon 70 210 D lens.

Now with a shoulder bag or sling or back pack will work, my problem is when I find a bag to fit everything its not deep enough for the body with grip, when I find a bag to fit the body with the grip its then a bag that accommodates lens as long as 70 200 2.8, I cannot find a bad thats deep enough for a pro size body with grip and the "L" bracket, and small assortment of compact lenses.

Anyone run into this problem? too small or to large?? the bag companies don't seem to think that not everyone carries a 70 200 2.8 lens with a pro size body.

Thanks, I've spent more money in the last 20 years on bag? than cameras well ! so it seems. I have think tank Domke, and Tamrack and Lowepro, all either one way or the other, and I like the grip on the body.

Maybe it's not for everyone, and maybe it just for me.  I find carrying a hard case (Samsonite) provides better protection than a "bag".  Therefore, I create my own layout, with flexibility to change configuration very important to me.   I have added a D600 to my collection.  If I want to carry all my gears, I use a larger American Tourist hard case.  Using the larger case I don't have to separate the 400mm lens from the D3s.
