The black Retrospective Lens Changer 3 from Think Tank allows you to carry or store two extra lenses in a soft, well-protected, inconspicuous bag. The subtle design of the bag makes it easy to tote around within a shooting venue. It's rated to hold three 70-200mm f/2.8 lenses with hoods reversed, each in its own separate compartment.

With its hook & loop closure, your gear is rapidly accessed and protected by the large front flap that covers the entire bag. The underside of the flap contains a convenient, clear business card holder for easy identification of the bag or for easy distribution of your card. The back of the bag has a zippered storage pocket that contains an additional organizer pocket used for pens, batteries, memory cards or other small items. An additional accessory pocket is located on the front of one lens compartment. It's sized to hold a lens cloth, lens cap or Think Tank's optional Pixel Pocket Rocket memory card wallet.

The Retrospective is carried by its top, quick grab carry handle or its breathable, cushioned canvas non-slip shoulder strap. The non-slip material integrated into the strap helps maintain its stability while in use. The bag incorporates Think Tank's Sound Silencer technology that eliminates the noise typically associated with the ripping sound produced from the touch fasteners used in traditional bags.

For additional protection, the bag comes with a rain cover that can be rapidly deployed should you get caught in foul weather. Backed by Think Tank's lifetime warranty against manufacturer's defects, this bag gives you a reliable way to protect and transport your lenses in both style and comfort.

The Retrospective Lens Changer 3 has three separated lens compartments for rapid access and easier storage. All compartments can accommodate a 70-200mm f/2.8 with its lens hood reversed
The exterior of each Retrospective shoulder bag is purposefully simple, allowing photographers to inconspicuously blend into their shooting environment
Opening the zippered pocket on the back of the Retrospective Lens Changer 3 reveals a built-in organizer for pens, spare batteries, memory cards and other sundries
A small accessory pocket with a hook-and-loop enclosure is located on the front of one of the lens compartments. This a convenient place for lens caps, a cleaning cloth, or an optional Pixel Pocket Rocket memory card wallet
A carrying handle is conveniently placed at the top of the Retrospective Lens Changer 3 so you can easily grab the bag when you're ready to go
The seam-sealed rain cover for the Retrospective Lens Changer 3 is specially designed to keep the integrated shoulder strap exposed while protecting your valuable photo gear from the elements
The "sound silencers" underneath the main flap are used to suppress the loud tearing sound hook-and-loop makes while opening and closing the bag. Simply release the sound silencer panels and cover the hook-and-loop strips to prevent the hook-and-loop from contacting
A clear business card pocket, for identification and spare cards, is also located under the main flap
Hook-and-loop panels securely fastens the main flap down, keeping valuable photo equipment hidden from view

        Comments about Retrospective Lens Changer 3 (Pinestone Gray):

        I needed a shoulder bag that would carry 2 to 3 lenses at wedding. Easily fits from my Canon 35-350 to my 85 f1.2 and any lens in between. Has extra zipper space if I wanted to pack a body with lens. But I usually carry the camera with lens separately when using this bag. Stylist too.

        This is a wondering bag. I use 3 lenses and this Lens Changer 3 bag really makes changing lens easy. I take the Lens off the camera and place it in the empty slot, grab the desired lens from the bag and twist it on. It is so smooth and quick. Best bag for street photography that I have ever owned.

          I have been using a Shootsac for about a year and wanted something a little different. I needed something that made my lenses a little easier to grab as well as had the ability to function as a camera bag when I only wanted to bring my camera and a few lenses. This bag is perfect for that. Plus it looks awesome. I feel like Think Tank does a great job of designing their products specifically for photographers and this bag was no exception.

            The Bag came as described. The material it is made of is quality. Good solid over the sholder strap, and the handle is also nicely made. I purchased this for a wedding shoot for my second shooter, it was all she needed!

                  Will hold three long lenses or several shorter lenses. The pockets are generously sized. Very easy to pull a lens out--even a big lens.
                  Swapping lenses is simple: loosen the rear cap from the new lens (in the bag), remove the current lens from the camera, drop it into the appropriate pocket, and put the rear lens cap on it. Remove the rear cap from the new lens, pull the lens from the pocket and mount it. One hand to hold the camera and one to handle the lenses.

                    Just shot my first wedding with this bag this past weekend. Great shoulder weight distribution left my back in good shape after a long day shooting. Lenses slide in and out easily with no obstructions and pouches hold a 70-200mm f2.8 II easily. Would highly recommend!

                      I was doing some travel photography in New York, and wanted a more compact bag for my gear. I've always been a fan of Think Tank products, and fell in love with this bag instantly. It has plenty of room for multiple lenses, cards, etc. The shoulder strap is very comfy, and I was able to put the built-in rain cover to work right after I purchased it. The only thing I would like to see is one of the pockets wide enough to hold a camera body with the battery grip on. That would make it a great all-around bag. It accommodated my 70-200, 10-22 and 27-70 nicely without too much strain on my shoulder. The built in velcro silencer is a nice feature as well for stealthy shooting.

                          I shoot weddings, and used to carry two bodies, and keep a third lens someplace in the venue. Now, with this bag, I only carry the one body, and swap lenses quick enough, and don't have to worry about not having the right lens with me. I like that the bag is designed to not carry a body, since it would be wasted space since I'm using the body.

                          I keep one lens pouch empty to throw the used lens in, I put two four packs of AA batteries in the tiny front center pouch, and the back side of the bag I keep cards and gels and cleaning supplies. I also Justin clamp a flash to the shoulder strap, and it rests out of the way.

                          The back side of the bag is also large enough to hold an iPad, which I sometimes do and shoot tethered to with Eye-Fi.
