View Full Version : Bag for a Canon 40D, 70-200mm f/4, 24-105 f/4

I just found the Domke website and I've almost gone blind looking at all the camera bag options. I'm looking for my first Domke bag to hold the above captioned gear and I need it to be as small as possible without being force-fit tight. I wouldn't object to a spot for a small prime too, but not critical. Preferably a shoulder bag with quick access to the camera with either of the lenses attached. No hood issues - I prefer B+W collapsible rubber lens hoods.

I've looked at the following:

F803, F9, F10, F-5XC, F-10 JD Medium, F-808, J-803.

Not exactly "narrowed down", but I would love any feedback from those with similar gear. I'm partial to the canvas bags. Unfortunately there is no Domke dealer anywhere near me. (Made-in-Cihna LowePro's as far as the eye can see tho')

This winter I'll also look for a small backpack for skinny skiing holding the same gear, but first things first.

I guess I'm partial since I'm the product manager for Domke, but lately when I'm out for the day I've been using the F-5XC. I'm using a slightly shorter lens but it's really been going well, even while I was climbing up the side of rocks.

For those two lenses and a body I'll use the F3x. It'll handle my 20D, 5D or 1D3 with 70-200 2.8 and a 24-70 2.8. Iif your 40D is ungripped you might like the F-803 (I use the F802 for 2 ungripped bodies with 24-70, 70-200 or 100-400 and a 15-30 plus flash, etc.). It's my personal opinion that the F803 is too narrow for a gripped body.

Hmm, £70 of the 100-400mm.. very tempting, but unfortunately Ive already bought my new lens for this year

Thanks for posting Mike, even if you are leading us into TEMPTATION

Will you be offering a "J" version of your F3X bag?
