Thom's Z-mount Bags

There isn't a perfect place to put this elsewhere on the site, so I've decided to place it here in the accessories section: what Z gear is Thom using, and for what?


As you might be able to tell, I've simplified my kits considerably as I moved to mirrorless. There are probably only two or three other lenses not in the table that have come out of the gear closet recently (8-15mm fisheye, and 105mm f/1.4, both on an FTZ adapter). I'll likely add the 400mm f/2.8 S and perhaps another telephoto lens as Nikon produces them, and sell off the remaining F-mount lenses as I stop using my DSLRs. (The D6 will remain, for sure, at least for the foreseeable future, so I'll need appropriate lenses for that still.)

Other accessory-type items that go in some of the bags include:

  • 1.4x and/or 2.0x teleconverters
  • Extension tubes
  • WR-R11 remote trigger set
  • MIOPs remote trigger set
  • SB-5000 Speedlights
  • Atomos Ninja V external recorder
  • Platypod kits

As for the bags, I'm in transition with them again, but lately I've been using the Gura Gear Kiboko 16L much of the time. As I begin to use a Z9 and longer, bigger lenses more, I'll have to upsize to the 22L.
