I own the Kata R-103, which holds the MBP and my Canon D-30, along with lenses and accessories. I love Kata bags .Its my fiances birthday and she is getting seriously into digital photography. She has a 15.4 MBP and a D80. Are there any bags out there that will accommodate and protect the two??
Very true - the Crumpler bag I have at the moment is supposed to be for a body and up to 3 lenses, but can only comfortably fits one lens attached to the body and one other lens (currently the 70-300mm). The pics of the Pretty Boy XL (yup, back pack!) do look like they can fit a body and 4 lenses, but I'd actually be happy with a body with lens attached and two others, namely the aforementioned 70-300mm and my 50mm f1.4 (which is finally arriving tomorrow. After a months wait ). If I can actually fit in my60mm nikkor-micro as well I'd be happy.Um....anyway, the products there are also different to the ones in other countries, so I don't know much about the UK stuff. Anyway, that Pretty Boy Back Pack XL (you said you were looking at the backpack, right?) doesn't look big enough to fit your camera + 4 lenses. The Opulent Rooster XL would barely fit 4 lenses and my camera, and it has a larger camera compartment. It would be good enough, as would the Stripper Zipper.
Actually, it depends on how large your lenses are. If the compartment seems small, and yet they still say "It fits 4 lenses", I usually assume it's 3 lenses. If you get a backpack with a larger compartment, then you're guaranteed that 4 good-sized lenses are possible. I have 3 mid-sized lenses (Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 with 82 mm filter size!, Tokina 12-24 mm, and Nikon 105 mm VR macro), and only 1 small lens (50 mm f/1.8). Crumpler said my Sinking Barge said it would fit a DSLR, 1 large lens, 1 mid-sized lens, and a flash. I can barely fit the DSLR and 2 lenses, but there's no way to add a flash.
So again, it depends on your lenses.
