Think Tank Photo Large Lens & Mindshift Gear Special Offers

Using a long lens for sideline shooting or birding this fall?  My friends at Think Tank Photo just announced a special offer on their two long lens backpacks, the Glass Taxi and the Glass Limo.  Should you order one of these backpacks between now and September 30th, you can select to receive for free from among the following lens cases and pouches:  a Slim Changer, Lens Changer 25 V2.0, Lens Changer 50 V2.0, Lens Changer 75 Pop Down V2.0, or a Strobe Stuff.  When you place your order, a popup will show the Free Gift options.

The Glass Taxi holds up to a 500mm f/4 lens, 300mm f/2.8 lens with DSLR attached, or a DSLR with 70-200 attached with hood in position. I was one of my first and long time favorite bags until I got my Streetwalker Pro.

The Glass Limo carries up to an 800 f/5.6, 600 f/4.0 unattached or a  500 f/4 with Pro body attached,  or an 800 5.6 with aftermarket neoprene lens cap , or a 200 - 400 f/4 with Pro body attached, or a standard pro kit with pro DSLR and 5-8 lenses.

I recently stuffed a 200-400mm into my Streetwalker HardDrive bag, but I think this bag might offers another choice for big lens shooters.  

Both backpacks are designed to hold these heaviest of lenses with stability and comfort. I can attest to this too because I’ve carried as much as 40 lbs in my Glass Taxi all day at a Formula One race, but it was comfortable (as 40lbs of gear can be <g>) and held up great.

Jeff & Anonymous,

The link is http://a.pgtb.me/53TMD3 - it seems that I somehow accidentally deleted the link paragraph before I published the article and didn't notice.

Thanks for the report and sorry for the delay!
