question

I'm just starting and have a T6i. I'm just curious if this will fit with the battery gap added on along with the 8'' lens. Without issue?
Asked by: Anonymous
I assume you mean battery grip? I don't have a battery grip, but I routinely put my 7D in this pack with the 100-400 lens on it. It's not a small lens. I think you should be fine.
