    I want to get a hard case for my (not yet here but preordered) d800, 14-24, 24-70 & 70-200 lenses. Suggestions? I looked at the Pelican website and there seems to be 3 different sizes. If anyone recommends the Pelican case, any suggestion as to which of these 3 sizes would best accommodate the above mentioned items?

    +1 for the Pelican 1510 with the dividers.

    One note about the Pelican 1510 and air travel. It won't fit in the overhead bins of all regional jets, though some regaional jets only have smaller than normal bins on just one side of the cabin.

    A packed 1510 - 4 gripped camera bodies, 35 mm f/1.8, 50 mm f/1.8, 12-24 f/4, 24-85 f/2.8-4, 80-200 f/2.8, radio triggers, cables, cords, extra batteries, cleaning tools, gels, mini-maglite

    thanks for the answers. I notice on the pelican web site there is a smaller case -- the 1500. inside dimensinos 17 x 11.5 x 6 inches compared to the 1510's: 20.25 x 11.38 x 7.5 inches. Do you think this smaller 1500 case will hold the gear I listed in my first post?

    Arrange you gear on the floor or a table top within an area the same inside dimensions as quoted for the Pelican 1500.

    Don't forget to also consider the case's depth, and the height of your gear.
