Tamrac 5374 Adventure 74 Backpack
B&H has the Tamrac 5374 Adventure 74 Backpack available for $59.95 with free expedited shipping. Regularly $109.95.
 
Note from Sean: I own and use one of these backpacks all the time. When I want to carry most of my gear, I take the Tamrac 5588 Expedition 8x. But for all other times, I pack what I need into a Tamrac 5374 and hit the road running. It's been a very good bag for the outings that require less gear.
 
Don't get me wrong, though – you can stuff quite a bit into one of these bags. For my latest trip to Atlanta, GA, I planned on filming our family Christmas get-together with my DSLR gear yet I also wanted to be prepared to capture static images as well (just in case). Here's what I packed into the Tamrac 5374:
 
  • Canon EOS 7D Mark II with Battery Grip
  • Canon EOS 5D Mark III with Battery Grip
  • Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L Tilt-Shift
  • Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM
  • Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM
  • Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art
  • Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 IF ED UMC
  • Canon 580EX Speedlite
  • Canon TC-80N3 Timer Remote
  • BlackRapid RS-Sport Extreme Strap
  • ND Filter and Step-up Rings
  • Flash Gels
  • Gaffer Tape
  • Microfiber Cloth
As you can see, this backpack can hold a decent amount of gear. ;-)

Nikon Europe Warns of Fraudulent D800E Cameras
From Nikon:
 
Notice regarding fraudulent Nikon D800E digital SLR (fraudulently modified D800) cameras
 
We have confirmed that there are cases in which D800E digital SLR cameras were received for repair, only to find that the cameras were actually fraudulently modified D800 cameras whose covers had been replaced with D800E covers. It seems that these fraudulently modified products are in circulation via Internet auctions and the like. As the Nikon warranty does not apply to fraudulently modified products, Nikon will not inspect or repair such products. In addition, Nikon cannot be held responsible in any way regarding the use of fraudulently modified products. Please take all necessary precautions to ensure the authenticity of a camera before purchasing one.
 
Identifying these fraudulently modified cameras
Display an image captured with your camera in the camera monitor. When the overview* display option is enabled in full-frame playback mode, the name of the camera used to capture the image is displayed in the top right corner. If "NIKON D800E" is displayed, your camera is an authentic D800E. If any other name is displayed, your camera is a fraudulent D800E.

*See the D800/D800E User's Manual for instructions on enabling overview display.
 
For more information regarding this matter, please contact Nikon Customer Support.
