You may want to have a look into the Millar series by fstop (http://fstopgear.com/en/product/millar). Their Mountain series are perfect (access to gear from the back panel) but way out of your targeted price…

I own a Satori Exp and a Loka as well as small and medium ICU's. As far as I can see the ICU's are all the same width, so even a small ICU is wide enough that nothing should drop out of your pack (see Dan Carr's review: http://dancarrphotography.com/blog/2010/11/02/introducing-the-new-f-stop-tilopa-bc-photo-backpack/ and scroll down to the pictures).
It looks like they now make 'shallow' and 'pro' depth ICU's. I'm guessing the 'pro' is the original depth.
F-Stop seems to be a good choice. Looks good.
I´m interested in the Satori Exp. If you take a smaller ICU inlay, thats smaller than the opening on the carrying side, does it cover the things you carry within the bag? Or is it open, so that the things outside of the ICU can be seen?
And how is the air circulation on the back and the carrying comfort?
Thanks NWPhil for all the advice. Esp. rain sleeve and P&S. What make of tripod is that? Bag choice was why I joined the forum. As an ML I've got a very large 80lt pack with compartments and a 40lt daypack without. The one I was looking at (see link) had dedicated compartment in base and some room in the top for normal gear. Wondered if anyone had experience of these.
* fully customizable Auto ISO
* EV +/- correction also working in "M" mode
* 3, 5 or 7 shot bracketing - user selectable
I assume such a feature would only benefit those shooting raw. Additionally, I doubt this feature will cause many to develop their raw files in DPP instead of Lightroom or the other 3rd party software available unless it performs some sort of mathematical magic.
2. DPP version
Which version of DPP wil be bundled with the 5DII ... v3.11.4 or a later version, e.g 3.11.5 ?
Is this version available for download already?
From a purely cosmetic/atheistic POV, the mode dial screams amateur, but functionality wise it fits the bill and moves easily... maybe too easily. I'm thrilled the freaking thing has a lock now.
