Bag no good for two lenses
on 16 April 2015
A warning to others. Be very careful about reviews. I should have checked to see if my camera was listed along with the lenses I have with any of the reviews.
I have a Nikon D5200, 18 - 55 standard lens and 55 -300 Telephoto. No matter how I try and put it in the bag with either lens on or off there is no way it will fit. Even to the point of taking out both pads, it still will not go in.
I cannot be bothered to return it. I have a friend who has a Nikon Coolpix camera, so it will hold that comfortably.
In future I will do research with shops in the high street for items before purchasing them online.
Although the bag is small, it is very well made and the padding seems to be very firm.
An update: After moving everything around. IE Put the camera sideways facing down and the large zoom lens to the far side. I managed to get it all in. However, it has meant that there is no space for anything else, def. not the charger as the pockets are on the small sie too.The side pockets are really only practical for SD cards and the Nikon Battery. IO had an old SLR case and I thought that was too small, the case from Mantona is smaller than that!!!
As there are differences between sizes of DSLR cameras and their lenses. It is very hard to judge how everything would fit in a camera bag if you do not have it psyhically in front of you. All you can go by, is if someone has reviewed the product that has the same equipment as yourself. So, if you have the same as me, then be warned... It is a very snug fit. I want to get a new flash for this camera, but there is no way of it going in this case. So I wil have to invest in a backpack style bag, as they seem to be a lot bigger and easier to organise without having to play tetris with a DSLR.
