Canon 5D and extra lens in Billingham Hadley Pro

leave a comment »

I was recently asked by a reader if the Hadley Pro will hold the 5D and a second lens without any problem, given that the depth of the bag is relatively narrow.  The photos show that this bag is capable of holding two or maybe three lens depending on the size of the lenses.  The lenses in the photos are a Canon 17-40mm f/4 L  and 70-200mm f/2.8 L zoom lenses.  The 17-40mm has the lens hood attached in reverse position.  The 70-200mm is without hood although the bag will easily hold that lens with the reversed hood.  Neither hood can be fitted in its “ready” position and be kept in the bag.

As you can see, the 5D is a tight fit as placed in the bag.  One could also place the camera in the bag with the attached lens horizontal.  There is still room for a second lens.  Suffice to say that if you use the optional battery grip, there is a problem fitting the camera in the bag.  Check out my other posting for more information.
