Has anyone changed from Billingham Hadley Pro to Billingham Hadley One? Do you think the extra space was worth the investiment?

I'm using the Hadley Pro, but it is definitely less comfortable for bigger cameras and lenses.When I bought it, I think the "One" din't exist yet.
So, if you own an EOS 5 or 7 series camera , I would't hesitate and go for the wider model. Quality is superb (I own 3 Billinghams!).

Thank you, Del Paso.

I own a 6D. I started with a Billingham Eventer, which I find superb, but it is too large. I really do not mind the width and the height, but it is too deep (front to back). Then I changed for the Hadley Pro, which I like, but it is really tight for my lenses (I use a Canon 24-70 2.8, a 70-200 2.8 and a 50mm and a TC2x). So, I thought the Hadley One would be right in the middle of the Pro and the Eventer, however, these bags are not inexpensive, so I am trying to find someone with a kit similiar to mine who was already tryed it on the same bag.
