Takumar carrying case

I got tired of not knowing where my Takumar lenses are. So I got myself an Optech10 accessory bag. After reviewing a lot of lens cases, this one fit the bill for me: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/583417-REG/OP_TECH_USA_4901012_11_Acc...l?sts=pi&pim=Y

Nice!
How does it handles the weight? That's a lot of glass.

Thanks,

Itís great for storage. For field work I donít think anyone would carry so many lenses anyway, so a hard case or a pounce is surely better. But itís a very good purchase.

It handles the weight fine, so far... It's not exactly a carrying case, but more of a "storage case". This is my second Optech10, the first one sort of disintegrated, but this one seems a little bit more solid. I guess you can use it for a carrying case, but there are not many photo situations where you are going to need all those lenses ! Prior to getting this bag, I stored all my Takumar lenses in individual Neoprene lens pouches. Then I had to dig through the entire lot to find the right lens for my purposes. I kept the pouches for carrying purposes, usually I only need to carry 2-3 lenses, unless I'm on vacation.

Good looking case, and a nice way to manage your collection of Takumar lenses.

Nice looking case and nice looking collection of glass. Must weigh as much as a sack of concrete.
