Messenger Bags

Messenger Bags
They are fashionable for sure, but messenger bags are also practical and comfortable.
We review and rate eight bags, from six leading brands, at prices ranging from £60 to £180.

messengerbags01a messengerbags01b messengerbags01c messengerbags01d messengerbags01eHow we did the tests:
For our tests we used a three-lens outfit– a Canon EOS 5DMk III with EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS lens, plus EF17-40mm f/4L and EF70-200mm f/4LIS.

Dimensions given are those quoted by manufacturers,with the capacity simply WxHxD of the main compartment,converted to litres. Manufacturers’ figures can sometimes be misleading, with things like interior size given without removable compartments in place and weights quoted with all removable items taken out. Significant deviations are noted. For ratings, dual-purpose bags were judged primarily as camera bags,with secondary roles noted, but considered more of a bonus overall.

Telephoto Zooms

After a longer lens to go with your standard zoom? Matthew Richards takes the best budget options for a spin.

Most of us start our Nikon D-SLR habit by buying a kit that includes a standard zoom lens, which stretches from fairly wide-angle to short telephoto in focal length. This is a very versatile combination, until you need a lens with real telephoto reach.

The contenders:
– Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro
– Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro
– Sigma APO 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro
– Nikon AF-S DX 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II
– Nikon AF-S DX 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR
– Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD
– Nikon AF-P DX 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR
– Nikon AF-S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED VR
