I'm toying with the idea of getting a Think Tank Series 40 or 50 holster-style case to use as a "safe" walkabout unit. Conceptually, I like what they have, but I can't find many reviews of this brand, much less a holster-style case. It has to fit my D300 with the 18-200VR mounted, but I'd like to be able to also carry my 50mm 1.8D in there somewhere. So I'm wondering about this brand's quality, especially the zippers.

Has anyone with a D200-300 actually used something like this?

The brand and zippers are good to go. If you are unable to physically find one near you to T and E, then email them and they will most likely try the combo and give you a better idea.

If I am near my camera store tomorrow, I'll try out the combo and let you know.

One thing you didnt mention, do you have the extended grip on your camera??

John...

At this time I don't have the grip, and I'm not sure that I will get one... but you never know. I'd probably want to invest in another lens first, and even on that front, I'm not exactly sure whether I'd have more use for a macro of some sort or a longer telephoto. All my film Nikons have the typical leather case that will allow even a 105mm portrait lens with a reversible lens hood. Very often I've got the camera in the big Nikon soft shoulder bag, then I want to get out of the car with the camera and the 18-200VR and walk around for an hour or so. And I want to protect the body and lens if I'm in the woods too.

I emailed TT and have not yet received a reply (5 days).

I use one actually - When zipped up it fits my D300 and the Bigma, and when extended I can squeeze another 16-50 f/2.8 in the same holster:
-> One camera bag with two lenses spanning from 16 to 500mm !!!
