The AF-S 70-200 mm f/2.8 VR II lens came with a Nikon lens bag. However, I wanted a bag that I could carry my camera body together with other lenses that I’ll need in a photoshoot. The Kata DR-466i backpack can be used to serve this but that would mean I need to configure its compartment in such a way that it would not allow me to carry other items.
This time round, it didn’t take me as long to find a bag the met my needs.
The Retrospective series from Think Tank had just launched and the unassuming exterior caught my eye. It does not look like a camera bag but its interior is well-designed to carry and protect your camera gear. I chose the medium-sized bag from the series. I find the Retrospective 10 to be too small for practical usage and the large Retrospective 30 to be excessive for the gear I use.
Despite its relatively small appearance, the Retrospective 20 can swallow up an equipment with two full frame bodies and three large lenses, such as the Holy Trinity of 14-24 mm f/2.8, 24-70 mm f/2.8 and 70-200 mm f/2.8 VR II.
There are quite a number of in-depth reviews so I won’t discuss the various features.
