Domke F6 or Retrospective for Pentax 67

Hey all,

I've recently rejoined the Pentax 67 fold and want to get a bag to work and travel out of. I've managed to painstakingly narrow my choices down to the Domke F6 or a Think Tank retrospective 7 or 10.
Does anyone know if the Pentax 67 with the 75mm lens (a bit bigger than the usual 105) will squeeze into a Domke F6? And if not, how does it go in a retrospective 7 or 10?

Any help appreciated!

Domke F6 or Retrospective for Pentax 67

I use a Billingham 225 for my 67 which fits the body plus one lens (up to the 200mm f/4) in the main compartment. I find it perfect as a shoulder bag option. I picked up the older style 225 (circa early 1990s) which is lighter than the contemporary versions and about US$100 if you find one used on the usual platform. The 225 holds its shape much better than the Domke which means over the years your bag does not turn into a loose sack.

I'm watching a few billing hams on the 'bay - always been a grail bag for me. I'll check out the 225.

Thanks for the heads up though - one of these is definitely in my future.

I managed to find a local store that stocks the Retrospective bags and can indeed confirm that the Pentax 67 + 75mm f4.5 lens fits in a retrospective 7 along with just enough room for an F3 and 35mm lens on the side. Nice bag, but I just prefer the olive Domke's looks so much.

No ones tried a Pentax 67 in a Domke F6?

I use one. It fits. You do have to remove the dividers though

Nathan - Legend! Thankyou. I've gone ahead and ordered an olive one. I'll likely post some photos up here for anyone asking the same question in the future.
