    Re: NIKON 70 - 200mm f4

    I can handle the weight just fine for shooting. I shoot handheld with the Sigma 150-500mm, which is heavier. But I do a lot of hiking with my gear, and that's where extra weight in the bag or on the shoulder can literally be a pain - especially if I have the Sigma in there too.

    I see your point, Jake....my camera bag is getting very heavy. Heck, I had to take the little dividers out just to accomodate my lenses. I am just going to have to realize that I can't take everything with me, all the time. I'm gonna have to pick and choose which lenses get to go on outtings and what to leave at home. My backpack weighs 21.7 lbs. now.

    If you have heavy gear, I'd suggest looking into some type of hip pack (I use Tamrac). Think Tank also makes a waist belt, and you can buy all the modular pieces you wish to add to it. I bought Think Tank's padded waist belt and their Digital Holster 30 which holds my Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 mounted with my camera. Fourteen years ago I had a car accident that left me with some back issues plus I have small tears in my rotator cuffs. Shoulder bags tend to bother my shoulders and upper back, but with either Tamrac's hip pack or the Think Tank Belt, it isn't a problem to carry gear.

    How much does your pack weigh? I have a great pack, it's just that my lenses are so big,, at least the FX ones. Then add in all of my memory cards (teehee), and I have a monster pack. By the way, I have a waist belt on my pack for added support.

    Great choice. I have the Lowepro Fastpack 200. They're great bags.

    Seen some on ebay but think they are fake , at half the normal price , think there's import duty too so not always a good deal.

    Yep! Play it safe and go with Amazon. That's where I get most of my gear. I have bought a few items from ebay, but the risk is greater.
