Good 'day-trip' holster for my Canon 5D mk II and 24-105 lens,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tamrac 5627 Pro-Digit Zoom 7 - Black (Electronics)
I own several camera bags for my 5D mk II, but all of them are quite large/bulky (and full of grads, alternative lenses, remote triggers etc.) which discourages me from taking the camera on short trips. This bag is the perfect solution for me. It fits the camera and attached EF 24-105L IS (with lens hood reversed) well - I suspect a slightly longer lens could be accommodated. That said, I don't use the front pocket for holding my polarizing filter (in its box) as I noticed it reduced the internal space at the narrow end of the holster and caused the lens to extend each time I pulled the camera out. Luckily the zipped pocket in the lid is plenty big enough to hold the filter, a cleaning cloth and a spare memory card, so problem solved. It is very comfortable to carry slung over a shoulder making the heavy camera + lens combo no burden at all. In short, this bag has made the camera much more portable on day trips and I've found myself taking it along without hesitation. The protection provided by the bag is fairly good and, for my purposes, perfectly adequate. Given that I paid half-price for this, it's an excellent and cost-effective solution to my day-trip problem.
