Hi,

I'm after a new case, as I'm not happy carrying around two bodies and the assorted lenses in just one.

A quick look on Amazon threw THIS ONE and the price seems OK.

Has anyone got an opinion, or know of any other similar cases that I should be looking at?

Thanks. :D

Depends what you want to do with it really.
I wouldn't want to take that with me daily to work etc. or out for a walk.
I might, if I was taking gear specifically for a shoot somewhere I knew I wasn't going to be moving around much.
Good for general storage too.

So, what do you want from a case or bag?

It wouldn't be for taking out every day. The main purpose would be protection, as I always have somewhere safe to leave it, so portability isn't the main concern. I did buy my current case from Jacobs, but they are no more and looking at the prices for a similar case from other suppliers made this one look ideal.

Edit to add: Just clicked the link again, to show the wife, and the price has almost doubled overnight. Suddenly, THIS ONE looks like better value.

Forgot to post an update on this. I ended up getting the case I linked to in the first post, and, so far it seems really good.

I'll try and post a mini-review after I've used it for a while, if anyone is interested.
