Canon Deluxe Backpack 200 EG

46512canon_200EG_1_
Review Date: Jun 30, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $39.95 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Compact, side straps are great for holding water containers, customizable interior
Cons:
Zipper is sharp, I kept getting scratched. Also, good have been a little larger

For a person with 1 dSLR, 2-3 lenses and some accessories, this is a pretty good bag. The interior can be customized to fit anything that you want, there's plenty of space to put water or other supplies necessary for hikes and a mesh front area for a rain jacket. The bag is a little small though (I'm 5'10) and the tripod straps on the bottom don't work as well as they could. Still, this is a good bag.

Pros: Inexpensive, good range
Cons:
Still a little soft, autofocus cannot be relied upon

The best thing about this lens is its price. Its great for people who spent plenty on the camera body and don't have the budget for an L lens. Images are a little soft from about 200-300 but its still acceptable. Overall, when bought with a good cheap wide-angle, you'll have a good starter collection of lenses
