I'm new to the forum, so sorry if this has been discussed. I want to buy a good padded bag to protect my camera from me. I would like to carry the D750 and a Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8, a Nikon 35-200mm lens" plus a Nikon Sb600 speedlight.

Welcome aboard. Enjoy the ride.
We look forward to seeing more posts and samples of your work.

A lot depends on which lenses. A 150-600mm and a 24-70mm lens would be totally different than a 50mm and a 24mm lens. If you have a brick and mortar camera store near you take you gear in and try out several bags. You have to also determine if you want a over the shoulder bag, a back pack, or a messenger type bag.

As Brent said, there are lots of different types of bags. If a small backpack might appeal to you, I'd recommend this one. I own one (among several photo bags I use), think it would be a good fit for the requirements you describe, and like it for the extra compartment at the top (useful for lunch bag, rain coat, ...) and the option to carry a small laptop or tablet, as well, without taking up much space.

Welcome to the Forum. I have a Think Tank Retrospective 20 That I CAN pack a D700 or D7200 with batterie grips an a 14-24 as well as a 70-200 and a 28-75 and there is still room for a speed light. It is a messenger bag, and it can hold more than I want to carry. I usually carry a mounted lens and an extra and occasionally a speed light.

I have tried a ton of bags and I love this one. I got it as a demo on Ebay so I saved about 50 dollars. They are not cheap, but I really like it. It does not really look like a camera bag, but it really works well.

I've always used top-loading bags. A photographer at my church said he will never buy another backpack bag because of having too many broken zippers. Since I've never used a backpack bag, I can't give you any firsthand info. It's just something to keep in mind. I use Tamrac bags, but that company was bought over (new designs, not the old designs like I have). I also use some Think Tank holsters but haven't tried any of their regular bags. Lowepro also makes some good quality bags.

I have a couple of backpack bags, including one large lowepro roller backpack, but seldom use them in the field. I find them a real pain to keep taking them off and putting them on to access anything in them. Currently, they are my excess equipment storage bags here at home. I much prefer bags I can access without taking them off. My favorite bags (Kiesel) are unfortunately out of business.

I have tried dozens. Peak design everyday back pack (or messenger depending on your prefernece). Pricey but indisputable champ for me. I could have bought half a dozen instead of all the other bags I have tried.

Try to find a different backpack that will accommodate a different design, completely different weight, and size. I think you'll find it most useful, which is this one: ...
I found this find very interesting, especially after learning what this backpack looks like. I really liked it, so I advise you to take advantage of it and not to miss a chance not to try something new in this matter. I assure that you will love it

Great, another scammer who can't even figure out that that the original poster from 2017 has probably already got a camera bag.

I would advise you to buy a special case for the D750 and, in general, for any cameras which can already be put in the backpack. This way, you will know that your thing is fully protected. If your backpack or case falls, everything will be fine with your camera. I also use a large backpack and therefore a case with my camera can easily fit into it, so in addition to the case, you will have to buy a roomy backpack. Still, I think this is not a problem since it concerns the safety of your camera.

So sorry Dangerspouse, that I didn't realize that Dirtymortainer was a spammer! I guess that hark's editing had removed the link part of the spam was the clue that I didn't realize. Again sorry everyone that I invited Dirtymortainer to join us!

No need to apologize, Brent. They get sneakier and sneakier, and harder to detect. I always get suspicious though when someone's first post includes a link to an outside retail site - especially if they are replying to a post thats several years old. Both are usually good tip-offs that they're just here to spam.
