I have a Nikon D90 and am looking for a good basic shoulder or backpack bag in the under $125 range if possible and I would be storing the D90 with all the following extras in it at home,
Nikon D90, Fong Puffer, sb600 flash with stofen diffuser, 70-300vr lens, 50mm prime lens, 18-105vr lens, a few sd cards, monopod, lens hoods spare battery etc.
Eventually I want to get the d90 battery grip and possibly a nice wide lens, but not too much more than I currently own - at least that is what I tell my wife when she asks
I am trying to find something large enough to store everything in but also not so large if I scale it down for a quick daytrip I feel as tho I am carrying a huge monster bag.
I tried a slingshot 200 i found at costco for $67 had high hopes for it when i first picked it up, but was a bit snug for the 70-300vr lens no matter where or how i positioned things and the bag itself was TINY (didnt even come close to fitting me) so I returned it the following day.
I dont mind a backpack that is small for me if it has a decent handle to carry it by though...Even with shoulder bags id be carrying it by the handle for the most part probably.
I tried on a lowepro compurover aw it actually fit me great body wise but it was out of my price range and is a darn big bag, I also didnt care for how the camera was stored or how it comes out of the base of the bag.
I sorta like the style of the lowepro compu trekker aw and even found it on ebay for just over $100, but I didn't buy it yet because I wanted to ask here first based on the info above what suggestions or what places you recommend i check out first.
Thanks for any help or suggestions.
