I have The D90 with battery grip plus a D60 and 4 lenses in a lowepro slingshot 200, and it works fine. I stack my 50mm and 35mm. I usually have my 70-300mm attached and it all fits very well.

Lowepro Fastpack 200, D90 with grip fits just fine. It's the best layout of any backpack out there. None that I have seen have as good of access to the camera.

I can fit all of the gear in my signature plus some accessories including 2 battery chargers all in the Fastpack 200 without a problem.

For just casually walking around, I like the Lowepro TLZ series. I have a pack than comfortably takes my D90 + 16-85 and a fair bit more besides (spare battery, cards, small additional lens if needed, compact camera etc etc). It's a very good "one lens + minor accessories" solution and gives easy access.

I have just bought a Lowepro "Classified 160" and it fits the D90 + 16-85 and a D40 + 70-300 and many extras in a relatively compact package. Nice shoulder strap.

I also have a Lowepro "Slingshot 200", but I don't find the strap very comfortable, and it feels like the camera is likely to fall out when you open it (hasn't yet).

However, when I need to go any distance I use an old Tatanka backpack with a spring steel frame that keeps the actual bag off my back, and a form-fitting harness. It doesn't have a great deal of space, it has no compartments and the cameras are difficult to get out. But after a day of walking with up to 10kgs on board it still feels like I'm wearing nothing. If I'm going to use a camera regularly, I just keep it in my hand. For a day's working it's comfort first for me, and everything else second.

I daresay, my opinions might be a bit singular.

I recently acquired the CompuRover AW, only complaint; I don't get out the cam as fast as on my Nova 190, but its a very nice big bag that holds all my stuff plus a lot of accessories in the top compartment. (Sold my Computrekker Plus AW because too much space for photo equipment only and not enough easy access/space for normal carry on stuff)

Figured I'd update my post:

Switched to a Thinktank system, Speed demon with some pouches. The soft pouches are really great, they allow storing my teleconverter without any caps, which saves a LOT of time. Anyone without a TC cannot imagine the extreme fumble of adding it quickly to your cam+lens. You kind of need 5 hands to juggle the caps. :lol:

Pretty much my whole gear fits in the bag, which is basically the world's largest fanny pack with some added pouches :lol:

Hi new on the forum, I'm currently using the Lowepro mini trekker aw (ebay from Shangai $60.00 USD) and found it just the right size for my toys a bit tight to my recently added Sigma 70-200 2.8 and Sigma 18-50 2.8 but still fine to carry around (heavy).
PS. off course from the list down here i'm not carrying the slow 18-105 and the 55-200, just the fast stuff for work.

Citruspers: is that a backpack (this topic is about backpacks...) :? ?

Doesn't look like one judging from ThinkTank's website.
