When I'm travelling with an even lighter kit (in my ThinkTank UD30), I just leave the hoods at home, since all of my L lenses are fairly resistant to flare anyhow.
The hood for the 70-200 isn't that large?! I found a cat in mine once! (not really, I dont hate cats, we just dont have any).

if I could fit the other two hoods inside the 70-200 and put that under the camera body w/ the 50mm on it, but I wont press my luck at this point, I'm just glad it all fits. This weekend I'll try to get down to a music store I used to work at - my old boss set up a roll of white paper and some lamps positioned perfectly for eBay photos, etc. I'll bring my bag down and try to take pics of everything...

Well, it's small in comparison to the 24-70's hood, which is large enough to cover the entire barrel fully extended.

Here it is on the left, with the Sigma 24-70 for comparison:




And here it is again with the hood reversed, notice how it almost swallows the lens (in the middle, flanked by the 100-400L and the 16-35)

I could see that with the longer teles and even the ridiculous UWA hoods (like that of the 10-22) but look at what I'm carrying, haha. Tiny hoods. They fit fine flipped, I just carry a Fastpack 200 because I don't tote around a ton of gear (although it's not as quick-access as I would like). What's this 7MDH you guys all seem to have? I feel like I'm missing out on something.

Crumpler makes awesome bags! I went to the Crumpler store when I was in San Francisco last year, and they had so many great bags there (not just for cameras).

Plus they also win style points. I love ThinkTank, but there bags are very meh looking (which is the point, and hence the name "Urban Disguise").

You can find those online easily enough. I really like my ID. Crumpler has really nice luggage too, but it's really, really pricey.

Actually it's looking like the ID is getting discontinued, but yeah, that's next on my list of stuff to toss in the bag.

I'll say this -- I really like the look and feel of my camera w/ the 50mm on it. For the price, I feel like the IQ is pretty darn decent (as long as I'm careful w/ focus).

.. or maybe I'm on crack, and they're all over the place now. I went looking recently and they were getting more and more scarce. Maybe I was inadvertently looking for the 02 version..

No no, I'm right. 03 is brown, and that's a no-no. Granted, it's in stock in a bunch of places, but the black one is only in stock 3 places according to google-shopping, and I dont really trust any of them. I wonder if there's a new version coming out..

San Francisco has everything. I spend my lunch breaks and free time at work wandering around checking out the stores there. Visited the Crumpler store last summer while waiting for a nitrocellulose membrane transfer to finish.

It's a shame Adorama doesn't have a camera store in SF, because I'd absolutely love that
