Yes, this bag is big, but it's so handy to fit in loads of stuff without having to leave lenses behind and regret later. Good padding, nice style, comfortable even if used all day, and robust. Not obviously a camera bag, just looks like a messenger bag. So much easier to open whilst on your shoulder than a bulky backpack if you want to rootle around and change lenses often. (I have a backpack for when I'm doing my off-roading hiking muddy 'nature' type jaunts). I've fitted my large 70-300 lens in, as well as the camera with it's normal lens attached. Lots of room for memory cards, batteries and general stuff. Yes, it's rather bulky but I've managed to holiday and walk around towns without too much hassle, and it's handy enough to fit in your assorted essential jumble such as wallet/passports etc alongside your camera items. It will even fit in a notebook in a padded section. If, however, you don't want to take too much you may well find the smaller bag just a little bit easier to manage particularly when in crowded places as this is a little bulky. After struggling with my backpack last time I went on holiday, particularly when doing the 'stop-take bag off-crouch down without tripping people up-find lens-close bag-swing bag back on without walloping by-passers' manoeuvre - I would highly recommend this bag.
