    Retrospective is a shooter's bag.
    Your list looks more like transport to me.
    R7&R10 are big bags but not great for protection.

    The Retrospective 7 includes two dividers. Even stacking some stuff on top of other stuff, it will probably not be practical.. I use the 7 and the 20 for my D800. Since I work in FX, my pieces are a bit bigger, but the 7 will hold the body and three zooms if the longest zoom is mounted the body. I never actually go out with the bag loaded that way, however. Usually I just carry a strobe and two lenses.

    I think the 7 is a great bag: so go ahead and get it, but store your gear in a cool, dry closet or shelf, not a bag. For transport, use a waterproof, hard sided, foam filled case such as a Pelican or Storm case.
