I second the Lowepro mini trekker. I like the classic version better than the AW version. It doesn't have the "rain cover", but looks much less like a camera backpack than anything else on the market (A good thing IMO)...

I also have Tamrac Velocity (I buy almost as many bags as my wife...), and I love the sling design, but it can't carry much stuff. It is the bag I use for airshows or zoos, etc, when I only take 1 or 2 lenses.

Slight update.

A friend from work bought a lesser Canon lens for her husband from Ritz Camera. She brought it over to show it off and I offered to give her $30 for a copy of her receipt and the box.

She accepted, so now my $100 20D rebate is doubled and her $15 becomes $30. The best part is she didn't know there even was a rebate available. So we both ended up winning.

Now, due to the advice on this board, I'm going to get a Sigma 70-200 f2.8 hsm dg and a 580ex with the money I didn't spend on 2.8 L glass.

You guys rock.

Don't overlook the new 70300IS. It's really a cracker: http://www.pbase.com/fstopjojo/70300s

I recieved the Naneu Pro 110 SLRbackpack for Christmas. We found it at a local shopfor Under $80. It is very well constructed and will carry a lot of gear.It is worth consideration.

just about a year ago I was in the same spot... I didn't fool around, didn't want to buy my lenses more than once.* Bought the 70-200 f2.8L IS USM.* I use it with 20D.* I put my money in the lenses instead of the camera... can upgrade the camera later on... but 20D is performing exceptionally... no complaints.* *I absolutely love this lense, I am SO glad I didn't mess around and waste money on a different one.* I shoot equine photography and it has been exactly what I needed, and it seems to perform very well with my camera.* happy happy happy.**[img]/forums/images/emoticons/laughing-smiley-002.gif[/img]Can't go wrong with this lense if you can manage to get a hold of one.*
