Can anyone recommend a light bag (for a day out) that will handle a D300 with 70-200 f/2.8 and another lens, say the 18-200? along the lines of this style? Lowepro - Topload Zoom AW

A top-loading holster is not going to hold more than one lens comfortably. You'll need to attach a lens pouch to the side, or find another top-loading, non-holster type bag.

You'll need to attach the lens pouch if you want a second lens.

I used to have that holster you linked. It'll hold a 70-200 with your D300 attached, and that's about it.

Hope cannockwolf doesn't mind asking here as I don't want to start a similar thread.

Been looking for Lowepro Magnum but it seems out of stock everywhere. So can somebody recommend a similar type & size to that bag.

Thanks.

I like Domke bags; the F-1X is pretty similar in size, though it's a bit longer and not as wide.

Really though, do you want that much stuff in a shoulder bag? It won't be comfortable.
