Default The Think Tank Retrospective 20

I've heard of ThinkTank obviously, but I've never heard of the retrospective bags. They don't look like camera bags and that's a good thing. I think you've talked me into it. I'm going to buy the 20. Any recommendations on where to buy? Cheapest price?

I'd get it right from the source if I were you:

They run about $170 everywhere you look.

Ahem..............manpurse!

digital is so cool but I shed a little tear everytime I think back to college photojournalism less than 20 years ago and we were still developing prints. My Prof, Frank Klock got one of the very first digital Nikons. He let us know the winds were changing.

The 20 is wayyy too big for rangefinders, but the 5 is perfect for a single body setup. I have it and love it. I've heard they are bringing out a 7 that is a little bigger and that might be perfect for you.

Yeah, the 7 does look like a nice size:

Just a tad bigger than the 5 and it has a nice dedicated spot for iPad or air...

New to forum but long time member of Ryan's other sites.

I have a Retro 5 from Think Tank and it handles my Nex7 camera with lens attached, two extra lenses, a bunch of small accessories (memory card,ect), and a single-stack 9mm in the back exterior zipper pocket.

Great bag.

I'd love to see a shot of your 9mm in the bag.

Dude... Nex-7! Holding out on us? What are your thoughts on that thing? I had a hard time deciding between it and the X-Pro 1. I went with the Fuji, but am still interested in the 7...

As for the bag, I'm buying one.
