Whilst waiting for Lowepro to release an updated version of the Lens Trekker 600 (seems the older one isn’t quite big enough for a D3 & 600 VR so they are making the bag larger) I decided to see if I could get my non-VR 600 f4┬áin to my 200-400 bag as a stop gap measure…turns out not many people seem to know about this one, but the CL-L2 bag that is supplied with the 200-400 VR will also fit both the 500 and 600/4 primes. I’ve read a few comments from owners saying the lens simply does not fit in this bag but as you can see from the pictures, it simply does!

My friend recently upgraded his Nikon 600/4 to the new VR version…he offered me a very good deal on his old one that I just could not say no too…! I’ve not had much chance to use it. However I thought I’d share a couple of my first shots and imperssions so far including one of the best features I’ve ever seen on a lens…
