    I am considering getting the Lowepro Slingshot 100. Does anyone know if my Canon 100-400 lens lens will fit in it? I'm guessing it will not fit while mounted on the camera but will it fit in the bag? If not the 100 would the 200 fit it?

    Most likely no.. Slingshot 100 is pretty darn small. My 200 will fit the lens unmounted. Lowepro now builds the Slingshot 300... check that one out.

    How tight is it in the 200? I'm trying not to get a bag that is to big but will consider the 300 if I have to.

    I have the slingshot 300 and it fits my Nikon D50 with my 70-200 VR mounted. However if I add a teleconverter, it does not fit, then its just too long.

    Its a great bag, my only gripe is that it slings over the left shoulder, I would have preferred it over my right shoulder.

    I know that I can have my 80-200 mounted in the slingshot 200, but it's damn tight.

    Whatever you do try to actually hold the bag in your hands before you make the final purchase. Bags on websites tend to look alot bigger than they really are.
     
  7. I have the 100 and the 300. I absolutely love my 100, but it is small. No it will definitely not fit the big lens, mounted or not.

    I find the 300 TOO big. It is the size of a major back-pack, but goes over a shoulder. I bought it sight unseen and wish I hadn't.

    Do you want to sell the 300?

    I went and looked at the 200 today. I was surprised how small it was. It looks bigger on their web site. As long as it fits the 100-400 lens fits, I think that is what I will go with.
    Thanks to all for their input

    I love the 300 it is the size of a book bag backpack maybe a touch deeper but it is big enough to be very versatile I can fit one large body dslr /5d w/ lens and another small body lumix fz 50 , e 400/ small lens another lens and 2 flashes all inside the main compartment it has another fairly large compartment that can hold all your cables chargers card readers books it is just well thought out every thing is handy yes it is a little big but it is all usable. so if you are wanting to run one body a big lens and have all your needed gear handy the 300 does work well the only thing it does not have a place for is my laptop but for 90 bucks verses 200 for the same kind of space it was a no brainier
