Plainsman - yup, that's why I sucked it up and bought from Mifsuds. UK shop, EU warranty. Can't fault 'em.

That's the internet for you - just because their site has gone AWOL doesn't mean they're dead in the water. I just spent a fortune with Mifsuds and their site isn't available either. Probably just down for maintenance...or something more nefarious.

Surapon, Tron and Nubu et al,

Thanks for the suggestions. Having looked around the web at these bags I think the Lowepro Trekker 600 AW II might be the best one for me. Even though I've just spent crazy money on the 500mm and 1.4x TC I don't want to spend too much on another bag - I've already got four of varying ages and types depending on what's required.

Jeez, this hobby is expensive!

Thanks for all the replies, I'll have a poke around the net and see what others are saying about the Tamrac and Lowepro.

Software & Accessories / Bag to carry body attached to 500mm
« on: August 30, 2013, 03:31:49 PM »
While my piggybank recovers from ordering a 500mm mk2 and 1.4x mk3 TC today, my idle thoughts turn to how to best carry the lens with my 5D3 attached. I have plenty bags already but nothing that would carry body with lens attached. Not a massive problem but could be a nuisance depending on wind/dust/rain.

I thought either the Tamrac Super Tele Lens Pack or Lowepro Trekker 600 AW II might be good. Either should allow me to carry body'lens without having the hood reversed (not so fussed about also having the TC attached at the same time).

Any thoughts on either bag or horror stories of zips bursting etc.?

A new 100-400 finally ? why not...

After releasing the 24-70ii and the 200-400 Canon wouldn't want to deprive rumor sites of the longest running non-existent lens!

But on the other hand side, the rumor was that they'd tackle the 100-400L after their super-extra-mega-tele is in production, and as that's really the case now it could actually happen...

Would a replacement 100-400 be a "big" announcement? Replacing a lens with a tweaked version doesn't strike me as being a big deal.

Considering I'm still ( ::)) about to pull the trigger on a 500mm f4 II, this news is a bit of a concern.

Mind you, will the Sigma have the same level of quality control as Canon? No.

Will the Sigma have 4-stops of IS? Maybe.

Will the Sigma be weather-sealed like the Canon? Can't see that happening.

Is the Canon more expensive just 'cos it's white and has "Canon" on the side? No...wait, yes....no, uh....

Without boring you with the details, the universe has thwarted me at every turn in my quest to get the 500mm. Perhaps fate is trying to tell me to wait for the Sigma 500mm f4 or even a 600mm if they do one.

(to be said in a tone of reverence and wonder) Oh great and powerful internet, what 500mm shall I ever own?

Nice shots Guy. I especially like the second one.

If only you could hear the noise too. Typhoons are about the loudest jets I've ever heard.
