I have a Nikon D70, 70-300ED, 17-70 AFS, SB-800, I am planning to add the 80-400VR & a kenko 1.5X, also a 12-24, and a 10.5DX. Along with assorted filters, cables etc. Also will the tripod holder work well with a monopod?

Is the 5 roomy enough or should I go for the 7?

I have a Canon 20D with a 70-300mm Lens.

It fit nicely in the Velocity 7.

I doubt that it would have fit in the 5.

With the battery grip on the 20D it is kind of a tight fit.

I just bought a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM lense. It is huge.

My 20D with this new lense would not fit in the Velocity 7.

I had to buy a Velocity 9. Everything fits nicely once again.

I Have an expedition 5. So far it takes a pentax dl with 70-300mm attached with room for about two more lenses below. The 70-300mm will also fit horozontally as will my even larger 15-30mm ex. Two teleconverters will fit easily in one hole, or one teleconverter (tamron) on top of a 18-50mm. Also a 28-300mm.

So thats a 300mm attached, two teleconverters in one hole, a 18-50 , a 28-300 and still room for a flash and three or four more lenses depending on size, or 5 if you have one converter on put it on top of a smaller lens.

Its a very nice bag it has a drawstring to pull over the zips to keep moisture out. It is heavy though compared to some of the other cheaper tamrac bags at over 4 lbs compared to just over one. I have actually been thinking of getting something a little smaller.
