Here’s me with the Think Tank Retrospective 5 on my shoulder.
Here’s a side view.
So far I’m REALLY loving this bag! The Retrospective 5 is comfortable to carry and is just the right size for a camera body and a few lenses. It looks great too, and the fact that it doesn’t scream “Hey, I’m a camera bag full of expensive gear. Come and steal me!” is a real bonus.
In the photos above, I’m out at Southside Park in Woodstock, and I’ve got the Nikon D5500 + 18-55mm kit lens with me, as well as the Nikon 85mm f1.8G. There’s plenty of room left in the bag for another lens or two, or even a speedlite and another lens (I’m also wearing the ScotteVest Pack Jacket which I’m REALLY liking too… but that’s another post).
My wallet and Samsung Galaxy S5 are conveniently stowed away in the interior pocket along the back wall of the Retrospective 5.
Here’s the Canon T6i and the two lenses unpacked and sitting in front of the bag to give you an idea of size.
Over-all, I’m finding the Think Tank Retrospective 5 to be a fantastic little camera bag. It has fast become my go to bag when I’m heading out with a single camera body and two or three lenses to do some shooting. If I’m taking out M4/3 gear, I can get two bodies and a few lenses in the Retrospective 5 without any trouble.
