Voted 5/5

I never thought I'd get really excited about a camera bag, until I picked this one up. This is a perfect size for a mid-sized collection of camera gear....easily holds 4-5 lenses, couple camera bodies, flash, some filters, cleaning kit, etc. I have a few more lenses on order, and 1 is probably longer than any of my current lenses, so I'm curious to see how well it fits. I have mixed feelings on the side mesh pockets....in 1 respect, it makes getting at filters far quicker and easier. However, pockets would've added a lot more cargo room. The exterior is water-resistant, which is a nice benefit in the event it gets a little wet. The front pocket on the bag is huge....if just holding film, you can hold nearly 2 dozen rolls. The mesh pocket underneath the lid holds my filters....it's a good-sized pocket, but my filters are huge so I currently have 3 in it. There's a pocket on the flap that covers the bag which can hold odds and ends stuff (and even a few extra rolls of film), and another pocket on the back of the bag that's for holding paper/notebook. For the price, it's a steal....and anyone who has a bunch of equipment definitely needs a "gadget" bag to hold all their equipment....however, if I had to carry this bag with me, it would only be on vacation.
