    camera case for long lens attached to body

    I am looking for a case which will accommodate a camera body and sigma 100-300 lens with 1.4 teleconverter - about 12.5 inches. Lowepro make a number designed for body and 70-200 but these will be a bit short the Toploader Zoom AW might have done the job but B&H say it is discontinued. The Thinktank Digital Holsterâ„¢ 30 should do the job. Does anyone know a shop in Perth (or elsewhere in Australia if necessary) which stocks it or is there an alternative case someone can suggest? I don't need to case to accommodate any other lenses - I have the Lowepro slingshot 200 and Offtrail 2 as alternatives for other lenses.
    regards

    Hope you find the case

    You haven't stipulated whether you want a backpack or case/waist bag.

    I looked around for a long time for something suitable to hold a large SLR and 70-200 (plus eventually a TC) and the only thing that I found which was practical and comfortable was the Lowepro Flipside 300. It's a nice mid-sized bag which will hold all you need for a day's shoot plus a tripod/monopod if necessary. It's very comfortable to wear all day and the long lens fits on the body inside the back like a treat. All the other options that I came across were very poorly designed or uncomfortable (I'm a shortish, small framed person and most of the bags are designed for bigger blokes).
