I saw that, so you have already test drove most of them, right?

I'd like to try the 7, but I have a few other things I need to buy prior to getting another camera bag.

i've had the 5/7/10...the 10 was just too big for my needs...the 5 is perfect for day trips and the 7 could be the best of all...just a bit thick/heavy at times...but nice if you have a full size ipad.

i'm getting one of the new mirrorless movers soon...the long weekend here in canada has delayed shipping till next thursday!!

I'm looking at the 30. Guess I'll wait for Joe's review, then credit RFF when I eventually buy it...

I contacted Thinktank when I got my Citywalker10. I told them how much I liked the quality of the bag but would prefer something smaller for RF users. Seems like they listened and produced the Mirrorless Movers. The Citywalker 10 is just too roomy for me as I only carry a small kit, hence it's in the classifieds. I may be tempted to get a Mover a I really like the Thinktanks for their quality, design and light weight.

I have the Retro 5 and easily fit 2 M bodies, 3 lenses, and hoods, filters, etc. It's been my main bag for the past 2 years and I love it.

I just picked up a Rolleicord V and I know that when I travel or go on long shoots I will want to take the 'Cord and a couple of M bodies (or an M and a Barnack, which isn't a huge size difference), plus lenses, etc. I usually only have one lens mounted on an M at one time. I am considering picking up a larger Retro bag, but am not sure if the 10 or the 30 is the better option. Anyone have any opinions from experience? The 20 is too tall for my tastes. I suppose I could order both the 10 and the 30 and try them out, but short of that, I thought I would see if someone here would have an idea.
