Day of Organizing

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I recently acquired two new Canon L lenses – 28-70mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8 IS.  While I haven’t been on any photo excursions with them yet, I finally got around to putting them in my bag.  And that meant I had to clean out my bag for the first time in years.  This wasn’t an easy or quick task. 

I mainly use a Lowepro photo-style backpack, in which I carry my camera body, three lenses, filters, batteries, etc.  My two new lenses, particularly the 70-200mm, are much larger and heavier than my older lenses.  As a result, I had to move around the foam and velcro sub dividers to make room.  I might need to hit the gym so I can carry the bag for more than five feet. 

I removed my Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 workhorse lens, but definitely not getting rid of it.  I’ll use this as my backup mid-range lens.  I also removed my Canon 75-300mm f/4.5-5.6 to make room for the 70-200mm.  Removed as well are two 82mm filters, a 58mm Conklin step up ring and several 58mm filters.  Everything fits, but it’s very heavy!

Now I have a bag full of photography gear I’m looking to sell.  Suppose I’ll get around to posting them to eBay, along with boxes of other items I have floating around the house.
