Camera Bag / Laptop Bag for 5DIII and 3-4 Lenses
« on: June 25, 2012, 03:16:27 PM »
Hello All,
Just got my 5D3 and few lenses and i have outgrown my older bag (Canon 200EG). I'm looking for a bag that has space to hold a laptop as well. Typically I always have to take laptop when I travel.

At a local store I looked at Lowepro Fastpack 350 and Tamrac Evolution 8. They both seem pretty good. But I wasn't sure if there are others that may work better. I also need some room to grow as I purchase a few more lenses. I searched through the forums but didn't find a topic related to my needs.

Looking to keep under $200.

Here is what would like to carry in the bag.

5D3 with Battery Grip (possibly a second body)
Laptop (15" max)
24-105 L
135L
50 1.4
430EX speed lite
Tripod

70-200 2.8L II IS (Will purchase in the near future)
Possibly another speedlite

Thanks for your suggestions.

Go for the Lowepro Vertex 200 AW since you'll be getting the 70-200 f/2.8 in the future. Of course it's $50 above $200, but it's definitely worth it. Superb protection, room for a laptop, and it has many other features as well. It's a bit on the "big" size for a regular backpack (if you were to compare it to one).

Cheers.
