A Guragear Bataflae 32L will easily hold the gear you mention. The straps can be zipped up internally so they are out of the way when not needed, it is relatively light weight when empty, has a good highly adjustable support system (not sure if it's up to "adventure bag" standards) and it is very sturdy with what I consider to be just the right amount of padding. The only downside is it makes no allowances for a laptop.

The actual status of my 6D: It returned yestreday after almost 2 weeks. Camera works now basically. Changed the card-slot-board (if I have translated this right). But now, the main front wheel does not work. Sent it back again.... More to come

That is most distressing. I hope Canon fixes your issue the second time around. Though I also suspect that the failure was unrelated to the FW upgrade, I think I will stay with ver 1.1.3. Neither of the last two updates offer anything I need. Best of luck.

I'm glad to hear you're happy with your purchase. Moving from a crop to a FF certainly has a more dramatic impact than it would be for me. I currently have a 5Dll (which I seem to be dragging my heels about selling), a 6D and a 7D for action shots. Since the files rendered by the 6D are at least as good as the ones of the 5Dlll, my motivation for upgrading only concerns the focus system and the build quality. I don't shoot action very often, but I do like to use wide apertures, and I think the 5Dlll's AF would certainly increase my keeper rate and ease of use. YMMV.

I forgot to supply the link for the new price as it comes from the "sister" site of getitdigital:


Woohoo! Front page news. Down to $2150. How low will they go indeed...

On macrumors there is a page which tells you to buy or not to buy an apple product. Is there something like this on canonrumors?
I have waited 4(? feels like forever) years to buy an 5D mark III and i am on the brink of breaking down..

I have the slower EF85 and it is a great lens in many ways, especially for the money, though it does have some limiting issues. I'm looking forward to the Sigma 85 Art (as well as the 135 OS Art).   

Have you considered a belt system to supplement your backpack? You can keep your most used lenses by your side with easy access. The next best alternative to carrying two bodies. Very convenient in many situations.


Apparently the 3 bodies left message was exaggerated and the fat lady has yet to sing. The price of a brand spanking new 5Dlll is now $2265. If this had happened a year ago...


getitdigital is reporting they only have three bodies left at the all time rock bottom lowest price of all time <$2273.

Right now getitdigital on ebay is selling them (gray market/seller warranty) for the super low price of $2273. Food for thought.

This just gets better & better. Down to $2272.50. Same link.

The only part of this rumor that I believe is that there is replacement talk...

Now at $2292.50. Last link is still good.

The old Russian turret finder is perfect on the M, doesnt look out of place either. You can adjust for parallax as well vertically. Must admit it makes a huge difference holding her up to my eyes instead of at arms length.

Don't point that thing at a cop
