I have it as well and got the Think Tank Photo Digital Holster 30 V2.0 Camera Bag it fits great and you can put it on your belt when shooting and walking around.

Ah, that sounds good. Thanks.

Does it fit including mounted tripodplate?

Shade mounted forward, or B/W?

OK, no answers, so I took the plunge eventually. One body and this lens overflow my backpack.

The Z6|Z7 + 70-200 with tripodmount and reversed lensshade fits. Tightly. I will try later if taking the tripodmount off is an improvement. I like that mount though, it fits nicely in my handpalm while supporting, actuating the lensbutton (to start AF tracking), and zooming the lens all with my left hand. While doing the backbutton right. Feels like being a juggler in a circusact.

The extensionflap on the bottom does not help in any way, it hinges, does not extent longitudinally, and is too narrow for the shade (forward or reversed).

Otherwise the bag is well executed and has some handy pockets for cards, batteries and the like. There is an extra weather protection cover. Never used the similar cover in my Lowepro backpack. Probably only serves as a reminder that this kind of bags are not waterproof in mousson weather.

Adding the 32.5 mm TC2 probably does not fit (still don't have that one . There are some attachment points for adding a lenscase. Or a jacket pocket, probably better.

Came with a folder showing a 40, a 50 and a 150 variant, the latter one good for "DSLR + 600mm"....

P.S. Oops sorry, tugged some more on that bottom zipper. It now detaches and extents lengthwise. So it will fit the forward shade or the TC2! Great!
