Strengths:    -very strong build
-holds everything
-lenses are well protected
-feels nice on shoulder

Weaknesses:    hmm.... moving the lense dividers is hard to get us to (meh.. u get use to it)

Bottom Line:   
I used to use a cheap little genaric case, but now upgrade to the tamrac. I have no regrets about buying it fits everything extremly well. the bag is very strong and protects your lenses vey nicely. it can fit eveything i have manged to put all my lenses for a old (25 years) minolta slr and a Elan 2e. with both thoso camera and lenses i sill have room to put my olympus C-740. the "digitally equipped" side pockets are very handy for orginizing and carrying/orginizing batteries & memerty cards.

Strengths:    Holds EVERYTHING!
Helps to give that pro look

Weaknesses:    Me thinks me got overcharged. I don't blame Tamrac

Bottom Line:   
I wanted to get a camera bag that can carry everything and I got it. It took a while to find a bag that can handle my Sigma 170-500 and other goodies. Heres an idea of what it can hold.

2 SLR bodies and an Advantix
2 standard, 1 wide angle, 3 telephoto lenses and 1 doubler
As many filters and film rolls as I want.
Tripod straps on somewhat easily.

It is a bit of a pain to have all that weight in one bag, but it's better to have that one instead of two camera bags and a lens case. It hold together pretty well.

Date Reviewed: July 25, 2003

Strengths:    Lots of storage space, well laid out.
Good padding for lens/body protection.
Very comfortable shoulder strap.
Holds my film and digital gear.
Lots of clips and zippers for protection.

Weaknesses:    Big bag means lots of weight.

Main compartment is deep, small prime lenses are hard to access unless you epoxy two rear caps together to make them taller.

Bottom Line:   
Big bag, carries lots of gear. Amazing how much it really holds. I got the older non-digital model, but still a great bag.

Strengths:    Holds all my gear that I need to take out into the field with me. Seems to be pretty well put together. And I got it for an awewsome price...$75.00 brand new!!!!

Weaknesses:    Too many empty compartments. I will have to buy more stuff to fill them. ;-)

Bottom Line:   
Just got this bag over the weekend and I love it. I was on my way to a shoot when it arrived in the mail. I put my gear in it right away. Holds both my camera bodies (with grips) and all my lenses(even my Canon 80-200 2.8L). I was using a small Tamrac bag that just didn't cut it for me. I actually had 2 bags, one for each camera....what a pain.
