Which one is better to hold a A7iii, Sony 20mm 1.8, sigma 24-70 2.8, sigma 150-600 dg dn os and a 14 inch laptop? The 18l or 26l?
Asked by: Srinesh
Go with the 26l. I have both. You can just get your gear in the 18, but no room for any additional. The 26 will pack much more comfortably. You hardly notice the size difference when on your back.

Which one is better for a sony 20mm 1.8, sigma 24-70 2.8 and the new sigma 150-600 dg dn os? The 18l or the 26l?
Asked by: Srinesh
If those lenses are all you're carrying then the 18L will be okay but kind of tight.. However if you want to comfortably fit the lenses you have plus any accessories or other things. The 26L will be the better choice.
