    Heres some links for the bags:

    Has anyone got experience with that type of Kata bag?
    My vote would be on the lowepro, better and more useful features., i have a number of kata and lowepro bags (not those two) and the quality of both makes are excellent it's a choice between what features there are and how useful they are to you.

      That Lowepro bag looks pretty good, I might even look in to one... The Kata bag looks a little small, but you weren't after a big bag anyways, right?

      I've finally made my decision in which UWA lens to buy, I've ordered a Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 II. Decided to spend the extra few bucks and get the series 2 than the series 1. Still not sure if I did make the right decision, since I was happy with the Canon 10-22mm, but I needed to stop borrowing my brothers UWA lens and get my own..

        Thanks for the advice guys, I've decided on the Lowepro, As fats said, The Lowepro has more features, i like the security of the camera gear and the flexlibility of the bag itself.

        Yeah i didn't want a huge bag, but the 22L seems perfect seeing as it fits 3-4 lenses and a pro camera, which is all i'd ever need.

        In regards to the UWA, change isn't that bad is it? I personally think i'd prefer the Canon 10-22mm (I haven't shot a 11-16mm.) Only because of the versatility of the focal range. I'm not that fond of the extreme distortion brought on by having a focal length that small, So being limited to just 5mm of difference seems like a problem. One issue i've found with my 10-22 is its harder to get as sharp as my other lenses, Perhaps i'm just being retarded though.

        Either way i'm sure you didn't make a bad decision Hojo, good luck with the buy, keep us informed!

            go for the current tamron 70-200 f2.8, gives you 95% of the performance of the canon 70-200 f2.8 but for a lot less.

              • I bought the Canon L 70-200 f2.8 IS for just under $2k (literally, JUST under- this is including express insured courier). Aust RRP was around $2600 or so (give or take) at the time I bought it. It makes sense to question the price of that lens, but the image is so crisp that I'm not upset to spend the money- in my mind, it's an investment.

                    Mine is the IS II lens. Sorry, forgot to mention... And I think I mis-priced The Aussie RRP.. Think it was closer to $3k at the time I purchased mine.
