I've been shooting with a reduced frame camera for a long time (Canon EoS Rebel family), so it was a surprise to me that my Nikon D600 and lenses didn't really fit into the backpacks I was trying them with. I'm looking for something to travel with as a day pack.
I looked specifically at the Lowepro Fastpack 250 and the Kata 3N1 Sling and I felt that these were not really set up for full frame cameras, even with movable partitions.
What I would like to have is a bag that I can open up and see everything, like in the picture below (a Tenba). But I can't seem to find one for the bigger body, wider lens and lens hood (reversed), except in the much larger bags.
I have the kit lenses, 24-85mm and 70-300mm (with hoods), and I would like to be able to put the camera in with the bigger lens attached. I normally wouldn't carry much more than that, other than some cleaning tools. A tripod strap on the back would be nice, but not essential. As a day pack, any other equipment would be kept in the car or a hotel room (with the exception being while I am en-route, on a plane for example). Room for a tablet or laptop would be nice while en-route, but I am unlikely to carry this at any other time.
This Tenba shows how I am used to accessing my equipment, but the bag is bigger than I would like. . My old Lowepro had a lower compartment like this (it only held one camera, which is plenty for what I am looking for) and an upper compartment without the dividers.
Can someone point me in the right direction? I would prefer something in the $100-$150 price range, but any suggestions are helpful.
