    Don't own them but I know somewhere that has them in stock

    both are very good, the 207 is much bigger than the 103 so will hold more but also means its a lot heavier.

    If you can tell me what gear you have I can put the same or similar gear in one and take a photo if you want so you can get a feel for how much space you'll have spare.

    that will fit the R103 no problem, but in the HB207 is will be lost, but that does mean if you ever get more gear you will not have to buy another bag.

    the 80-200 you have is it a F2.8 lens or a smaller F4-5.6?

    Either way I'll take a few shots at work tomorrow and post them tomorrow when I'm home
