I own a Lowepro bag!

Tony (striker) will be very pleased

I ended up getting the Slingshot 200 AW. Paid $110 on ebay, picked it up yesterday afternoon. Brand new, a good deal I reckon.

It's got room for 3-4 additional lenses, some nice extra compartments, the All Weather cover, and can sling around for easy access.

It's just the right size, too.. bigger than my current camera bag (which is why I needed a new one), but not so big that it would be cumbersome to take around. I was almost going to buy one of the rovers or trekkers or Compurovers etc, but the sheer size of them would make it impractical to take places like the zoo, or on family picnics, etc.

I'm very happy with it!

Good Purchase!

Comment about the Compurover. I'm quite happy with mine. Takes my cam gear and the 17". I use it regularly for all travels, and it's my usual carry-on companion on aircraft. No problems fitting the overhead lockers, but very glad it doesn't get checked for weight - the cam and PC combined are heavy and more than 7kg.

Cheers,

Graeme
