    Those bags permit up to 600mm lenses with camera body attached, or 800mm without camera body attached. So the 200 (150?)-500 should be fine. Unless you mean the 200-500 f2.8 lol...then no it wouldn't fit. Actually these bags are much larger than you would need for the 150-500, maybe the 400 AW would be enough.

    Bought a 16mm extension tube to use on my 18-135mm Fujinon lens. Also bought a Fuji X-M1 camera that will fit in my cargo pants pocket. Yesterday I pulled the trigger on a Fuji X-T30. That's all for now.

    I bought an ape case especially because it can carry a D7500 with the 200-500 attached (hood reversed).
    This was for day tripping off a cruise. The bag was perfect to protect the gear, but there’s no room for anything else

    Post your latest purchases.
    Ordered a Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer 2 weeks ago. Adorama was sold out of the pro kit that had all the accessories in one package so I had to piece it together which came out to be almost $100 more than the pro kit. Shipping was slow, despite paying an extra 15 bucks, ground was the only option for some reason. It arrived last Friday, the day we left to go on our camping trip so I tossed all the boxes in my bag and left. No practice, no reading pesky owners manuals, just the videos I watched on youtube to rely on out in the middle of nowhere in the dark. There is a ton more to learn with this thing, but I am happy with the results and very happy with this purchase.

    Finally figured out something to spend that pesky stimulus check on

    Benro Mach 3 Extra Long Tripod / Manfrotto 229 pan head

    with the legs and column all out, I can shot straight up standing underneath without bending (I'm 6' 7")
    on the down side, even carbon, it is a heavy rig to jaunt about with, but my wife says I need the exercise anyway.

    Wow, that does look to be a heavy rig. Does that Manfrotto head use the hexagonal plate? Looking it up online, it sounds like it is supposed to. I have a Bogen Manfrotto tripod with a Bogen head that takes the hexagonal plate. The combo weighs in to be at least 10 pounds. It always was a bear to carry.

    Never knew Benro made an extra tall tripod. That one is enormous in height!

    I just weighed it with the camera -- 15 lb on the nose.

    It is a hex plate. Head is really solid and smooth action, but it will take a while to get used to.

    I always preferred those hex plates over the current 200PL Quick Release plate they use on other heads. And I appreciate knowing heads with hex plates are still available - had no idea.
