The Think Tank Retrospective 7 Shoulder Bag (Blue Slate) is a shooter's bag. With enough space for your standard DSLR with a 24-70 mm f/2.8 attached and a 70-200 mm f/2.8 by its side, you'll also have enough room left over for your flash and accessories. Plus, there's a rear pocket large enough for your iPad or 11" MacBook Air. The internal dividers can be configured to accommodate the gear you need that day.
Inside, there are two hook and loop nylon pockets that can hold a flash or similar sized item. Outside, under the main flap is another pocket that can hold an additional DSLR body or accessories.
The main flap is secured with hook and loop panels and all the zippers are durable YKK design. Think Tank's unique "Sound Silencers" - panels located under the main flap can be deployed to eliminate the "ripping" sound of the touch fasteners when you need to access the interior. This will come in handy when shooting in quiet venues such as court rooms, golf matches or public relations events.
For business cards, there's a clear interior pocket for extra cards or your ID. An interior zippered organizer pocket can hold your filters, cleaning cloths and other small accessories. Pens, maps and even more stuff can be kept within a second interior storage pocket.
Carrying the Retrospective 7 is easy with its adjustable canvas strap or removable top carry handle. The shoulder strap comes with a cushioned pad that can slid along the strap for optimum positioning. The strap is also supplied with patches of non-slip material to keep it stable while in use. For bad weather, the bag comes with a rain cover that covers the bag but exposes both the shoulder and carry strap.

Nikon D80 with 18-200 VR lens. so far I love it,
Just like every Think Tank product the Retrospective 7 is very practical and very well made. Think Tank bags usually get the highest marks in these fields. However, this retrospective range also has the best looks of any camera bag. I stuff mine with a Sony A99 with 24-70 mounted on, a 70-300, a 16-35 or 85mm, a small flash, various batteries, cleaning materials, filters, step down rings and mobile phone. It all fits beautifully and logically.
