    Hi all
    I have the retro 5 which is perfect in many situations but in few days I will go in a safari with em5ii + battery grip and 40-150/2.8 +1.4 doesn't fit.
    I found an used retrospective 10.
    Do you think is it too big?
    Could it fit a MacBook 13"?
    I was thinking could be good also for other stuff, binoculars, other lenses...
    Thanks

    re: the MacBook: I actually don't think so, look here for details:

    Retrospective® 10

    Otherwise, these bags are great - I love my 5 as well as my 20 ...

    I can sort of chime in, I have the Lowepro pro messenger 160 which is Lowepro's (very well done) copy of the Retrospective.

    It fits E-M1 with grip, 40-150 2.8 (mounted as well) , 7-14 2.8, 12-35 2.8, plus other small primes with ease. I don't find it too big but at the same time I wouldn't want it any bigger. Not sure about the macbook question but I didn't think the Retrospective had a notebook pocket.

    Like I say this isn't the Retrospective 10 but diemsionally and style wise it is very close. Sorry for the phone pics, on my way out so just grabbed a quick picture. Lenses in the bag are 12-35, 7-14mm 2.8, 40-150mm 2.8, shot with camera it is mounted to 40-150. Fair amount of room left.

    I have a Retrospective 10 but I don't have the same gear as you (no battery grip and smaller lenses). I use it mostly for my canon gear but if you think it would be useful I can take some photos of it with my E-M5 and some lenses inside. For me the biggest problem is organizing smaller lenses and items, I feel I end up not using the available space in the best way.

    Here you go. The longer lens in one of the side compartments is about 170 mm long. I'm pretty sure you will not be able to fit a Macbook in it.

    Thanks
    I've bought a used retro 10 today so I will get it just before the next trip on Saturday.
    And now since I will have a big bag I have to see if in the shop there is a 300/4 :p

    The ThinkTank Retropective 10 bag seems to be the right size for larger m4/3 lenses and comfortably fits an iPad with a keyboard, but nothing much larger. Here is the bag with an E-M1, 50-200mm mounted in the bag, a 12-60mm and FL-50r flash in the front pocket to show how big the pocket is.

    same stuff in bag

    and all outsdide of the bag for size comparions.
