p.2 #1 · Best Think Tank bag for PJ


Yes. Depending on how much I need to carry, I'll use one or the other. The Urban Disguise fits more; the Domke is easier to access the gear inside (as shown above).

My 70-200 is the f/2.8 L IS, the original one. I have had no problem with sharpness in this lens. Except for portraiture, I'd guess that I use this lens maybe 80% of the time, mostly under less-than-ideal conditions, including Friday night football under crappy lights, and performing arts (mostly dance) on stage at f/2.8. It's the single best investment in gear I've ever made. The IS II version is supposed to be even better.

Well I ended up with the Think Tank Retrospective 10. I went to Overland Park Photo Supply and looked at everything. I came in looking at the speed belts for my sports work and ended up leaving with this beauty. It's spacious and has all the space I need for my gear. The only thing missing is a space for my macbook, which isn't an issue. I'll just have to pickup an iPad 2 for the space they did provide!

Steve, thanks for that information. I played with the MK ii IS today and loved it, but I don't think I can see a different between the non-is and the is for what my uses will be. Although I might just save up and get it to be safe and avoid being sorry later when I'm international freelancing. We will see how it goes. Thanks for everyones input, it was greatly appreciated!

Photojournalists does not carry their flash in pouch as it takes time to take the flash out and put on a camera!
You might miss the shot while dealing with the flash in the bag!

I think that the LowePro Stealth Reporter bags are a much better design for PJ and similar work.

I live in ‘3:10 to Yuma’ so camera shops around here are just a theory. However, I’m a speed dialing Internet super-shopper and ThinkTank products are some of the best I have ever seen. Loved the ‘Retrospective 5’ but it was a tad too small for the A900 w/135 so back it went ($).

Though the ‘Urban Disguise’ is more of a contradiction in terms, it is a fantastic bag. I ordered one but it was overkill for my needs so I changed it out for a ‘Retrospective 10’ (in Pinestone), which is modestly sedate by comparison. Either way, they are pricy but once it's in your paws, the cost seems a bit more justified.
