Lowepro Pro Mag 2 AW

Pro20Mag
Review Date: Jan 20, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $169.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Good quality bag, weather-proof.
Cons:
Not easy to open when on your shoulder, to small for my 400/5.6.

Very good bag. It fits my 20D with grip, 17-40mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm and 420EX flash and room voor some small stuff.
It has a "raincoat" for heavy rain.

The only complaint I have is that it is not easy to open when on your should.

Now that I have a 400/5.6 I am looking for a larger bag (backpack) because it does not fit in de Pro Mag 2.

Pros: Sharp, very good build, weather/dust sealing.
Cons:
Size and weight, but not to much.

I had a Sigma 28-70mm which I liked but had some issues with it.
I looked at the Tamron which is also very good.
But the buildquality of this lens was the breakthrough for my decision which to buy.
it is a bit big with the lens hood but also impressive Smile
I love this lens!!

This lens is fantastic, sharp, fast focus and very well build.
The price is also great for an L-lens.
Great for landscapes and interieurphotography.
