So I got a bit carried away with the videos. I've watched so many YouTube videos and seeing all those beautifully polished videos with jazzy graphics, smart lighting and different angles and shots made me think - what YouTube really needs is a poorly lit monotone middle aged man fumbling in front of a fixed position iPhone :)

First up, 200-600 in the 20l and the 30l
Verdict - the 20l will hold it, and the 30l won't hold much *more* when the 200-600 is in there, but it's just more comfortable in the 30l. I might consider the 20l if I'm only out for an hour or so and gear will be safely in car boot or back at home in between, but I just think everything is safer in the 30l. Plus, the 30l allows one of the inserts to be position as a 'shelf' towards the top of the bag. I'm keeping the 30l because if I ever do go away somewhere for a few days and intend to take the 200-600, this is the bag I'll use to safely carry it. I will be ordering another of the origami style inserts for it though. Neither bag will take the 200-600 horizontally (apologies, I forgot to show it on the 30l segment but can confirm it's not even close to fitting

Next up, and this is A setup for the 20l with 200-600
A few minutes after doing the 20l vs 30l, I was still slightly on the fence about the 20l and 200-600, so I had a try setting up the bag as I have had it with the 100-400 and 1.4x TC and a second body with wider lens. It's not a dreadful setup as discussed above, but I do miss the 'shelf'. This video shows how neither body is protected from above in this setup.

Then I decided to update my video of 2 years ago showing the 20l with my normal weekend away gear
This is the 20l taking A7iii mounted to 135, 1.8 Laowa 15mm f2, Sony 35 f1.8, Sony 50 f1.8, Sony 85 f1.8, Sony 100-400, Sony 1.4x TC and Nisi 100mm filter case. This bag is just a dream and perfect for those pocket rocket primes.

And finally, a video showing off the Peak Design everyday sling 6l.
Having done the video above I wanted to quickly show why I think the everyday backpacks pair nicely with the Peak Design everyday sling 6l. While the backpack will get all your gear somewhere (a hotel, holiday etc,), the sling is the bag I generally load up with 3 lenses for a day out with the family. Perfectly holds the A7iii with 135 mounted and room for any two small prime/zooms to the side. Worth noting the old 5l sling CANNOT do this.
