What’s In The Bag?

It’s a ThinkTank Retrospective 5 bag. My favorite camera bag of all time and I went through a couple of them. Of course it doesn’t hold all the items listed below. This is all my APS-C gear from Fuji.

On my trips to Asia I only take the X Pro-2, the XF 14/2.8 R, the XF 23/2 WR and the XF 35/1.4 R and maybe the Canon G7X. On big vacations where I focus on landscape/wildlife photography I take the zooms and add one or two primes.
