check out gura gear - their bataflae 32L is huge and will easily swallow all you equipment.  Also rugged and very lightweight.
As you said: It's huge. Half of it will hold a 600 f/4 or 800 f/5.6 without camera or a 500 f/4 with camera.

OP mentioned 300 2.8. So a Bataflae 26L would be a better choice. It will hold the 300 2.8 with camera attached in one half and the other equipment in the other half with room to spare...

P.S I do have 26L and believe me it's BIG. You do not want even bigger than necessary...

I tend toward larger bags, so (1) I can keep equipment easily accessible and (2) take that extra items (water, sun screen, sandwich, ...) with me.
Well this thread is about OP's needs:

300mm f/2.8 IS II (with lens hood reversed - body attached is nice but not needed)
70-200 f/2.8 IS II
24-70 f/2.8 II
16-35 f/2.8 II
1.4x & 2x III TCs
Tripod on back/side
Misc filters, RRS pano slide, small first aid kit, snake bite kit, lens cleaning kit

The 26L holds all of them with room to spare.

In addition he didn't require water, sandwiches and sunscreen. Not that I would put them in a photo bag that carries so expensive equipment. Murphy's Law is always active ...

My old analog EOS cameras had 0.5 stop increments and f/3.5 value was among them...

Lenses / Re: 400mm f2.8L IS II or 600mm f4L IS II?
« on: September 16, 2013, 05:04:40 AM »
I would keep the 600mm II. I am FL limited more than needing a f/2.8 vs. a f/4 lens. But it all comes to what YOU need more.

You cannot back off but a lesser lens could do the job (300 f/4 for example).
 
Plus, I would not get the 200-400. It's too expensive (you would not sell one of the two if they were cheaper, why buy a more expensive one?). In addition it would combine the lesser focal length (400mm) with the f/4 aperture.

Just because some other person had a bad experience (which they may or may not have exaggerated) doesn't mean that you will.

I am sorry to be the devil's advocate here but this can be reversed:  Just because some other person had a good experience (which they may or may not have exaggerated) doesn't mean that you will.

Sorry I cannot consider it an unbiased argument.

More technically: This may cry QC issues and as neuro said not complete reverse engineering but the end result unfortunately remains the same for the unsatisfied buyer.

 I recognize the price difference and the IS advantage of course but it seems unfortunately that there will be some disadvantages together with the advantages.

Try to return/exchange it. Better than having a new camera serviced. If they refuse threaten to report them to some authority. Plus mention their name. Don't keep it secret...

Hi tron!

They would have exchanged the Caera, but they do not have one anymore for some days or weeks. They will replace it, after the massmarket will be delivered.
But my holidays are starting in 3 weeks. :-(
What about asking your money back? Then you can search for other suppliers...

Lenses / Re: Can 24-70/2.8 II replace 35/1.4?
« on: September 05, 2013, 09:27:02 AM »
It's like comparing apples to oranges. Granted for 95% or even 99%  the 24-70 2.8 II does the job but for the rest very few cases f/1.4 is absolutely necessary.

I think it means that when DxO actually put a lens on the camera their results go out the window.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 70D features vs 60D
« on: September 04, 2013, 06:43:49 AM »
As my search, 70d has many improvements from 60d, see here, http://thedigitalcamera.net/canon-eos-60d-vs-70d-comparison/, if you think the improvement is useful for you, go for 70d.
Interesting the fact the the site says: GPS: YES!

In addition it has two entries for flash:
                          60D         70D
Built-in flash    Yes           No

Flash            Built-in    Built-in

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: I jumped ship...
« on: September 03, 2013, 02:26:20 PM »
To me this expression means: I sold all my vendor X cameras and lenses and bough the equivalent vendor Y cameras and lenses.
It seems that you had left your equipment intact while you...  were transferred temporarily via a boat from one ship to other and then back to the original one.  ;D

P.S Rumors that you harried back much earlier due to a possible 135mm 1.8L IS announcement are totally inaccurate...  ;D  ;D  ;D
