Speaking of bags . . .
I always choose bags that are multi-functional. I wanted a laptop bag for my 17″. I got a Tenba Shootout a few weeks ago which can hold my laptop as well as my camera, lenses, and equipment and has tons of pockets! It’s even tall enough to carry a 70-200mm.
The one thing about shoulder bags though is that they will definitely strain your shoulder, so I may eventually get a laptop backpack bag by either Tenba or Lowepro, but since I mostly got this as a laptop bag, I won’t be carrying my gear with me all the time in this bag . . . but it’s nice to know I can!
