Pros: Construction quality, features, size, rapid access
Cons: Depth for longer telephotos, comfort when loaded

I purchased this bag to carry my Nikon D200, 1 - 3 lenses, 1 or 2 flash units, batteries and flash cards.


This bag has sufficient space to hold the camera with short zoom (17-55 or 28-70 2.8) in centre compartment, with 2 or 3 other short fixed lenses, or short zooms in other compartments and 1 flash. If less or smaller lenses are packed, then 2 flashes can be packed comfortably (or a flash and an Epson P-2000).


The nice thing about this series of bags is that they provide great access to equipment, and separation as well via dividers. On the negative side, I find such shoulder bags uncofortable for long term use when loaded beyond even 5 lbs of equipment. For that reason, I don't use it as a carry-around bag.


The only other shortcoming of this bag is that it is not deep enough for longer zoom lenses, such as a 70-200 F2.8 (for that you would need the Stealth Reported 400).
