Did you buy the $480 black one on FredMiranda by any chance?A Panasonic GX9 after reading the lengthy, 6 page post on it here on Mu4/3...decided what the hell! Also, sold four cameras...two GX85's, a Sony RX100 MII, and a Olympus E-M10 MII with the two kit lenses. After all is said and done, I come out several hundred dollars ahead for my growing camera fund.
Very nice. I've wanted a Hadley Pro for years now but they're too expensive here in Australia. Maybe one day.A Billingham f1.4 on ebay. Same colour as the backpack (great for trips when we're not locked up), and the Hadley digital which I'll probably sell.
I had a Hadley large and that was too narrow - my 'standard' lens is the 17mm f1.2 and the battery grip lives on my camera. Should be room for a 100-400mm too - not that I own one or anything like that. Hope it's as good in person as it is in the photos.
Are you getting stung on import duties/sales tax?Very nice. I've wanted a Hadley Pro for years now but they're too expensive here in Australia. Maybe one day.
Mostly shipping costs I think, Richard.Are you getting stung on import duties/sales tax?
I have chopped and changed mine as I have chopped and changed my system. I buy secondhand via ebay wherever possible and am very patient. A Hadley Pro would fetch 80-150 GBP in average to perfect condition in the UK.
There used to be a few canvas manufacturers where I live years ago that could make nearly anything, but alas they have all gone. Cheap imports killed their trade.I just realised that back in a previous boating life I used to get lots of stuff made to measure by a local marine canvas shop - tool pouches, gear bags, covers and so on. I wonder whether you'd be able to get a bag made to measure from such a shop still, today. I wonder what it would cost, as well. Imagine designing what pockets, flaps, zippers and other stuff you'd like, put where you want it. Fit a Tenba into it for the body and lenses and away you go. Hmm.....in fact, a waterproof satchel that is just made for a specific sized Tenba would probably do the trick....
Yes - I've used more than one fishing bag over the years for my gear. But not in the Tenba era, which would probably make it a fine option to explore. Soft-sided cooler bags have also been aboard with me as storage bags for camera gear, more for protection than waterproofness, but they served their purpose,too.I've looked at good quality shotgun cartridge bags in the past. I think any decent bag designed from the outset to prevent the contents from getting wet is a good starting point.
