Re: Suggestions - suitable bag for larger lenses

Walti I'd be really interested in your thoughts when you get it as I need to get a bag for my sons partner who's just getting an EM10 mk3, plus 14-42 & 40-150R kit. It looks a nice bag but I suspect it's a bit too big for this kit. Although if there is room for a 75-300 at a later date then maybe it's a contender.

Re: Suggestions - suitable bag for larger lenses

It's a pity that 7dayshop don't stock these anymore:

https://www.google.co.uk/search?clie...e2WC4OSPwS6cM:

IIRC I paid 8 for mine. I carry an E-P5 with VF4 finder, 14-35mm and 35-100mm Panasonic lenses, Sigma 30mm f1.4, Panasonic 15mm f1.7, 4/3rds 50mm macro and several spare batteries and bits and pieces. It is a squeeze though!

I have a camouflage version of that bag that is unused and not needed if anyone wants to make an offer

Thanks Iain but I found a nice little Manfrotto one at a real discount price so went for that.

Funny. I have the Nova 180 (first edition, with a velvety carry handle which loses its furry finish) bought on here, and carefully packed it can contain lots of kit. E.g. E-M1 with MMF-3 and FT 12-60 in the centre, with tiny accessory flash under it; 75-300, a Metz 50 AF-1 flash and a selection of primes in the outer sections of the main compartment, plus flash stand, tripod shoe, spare batteries for camera and flash, memory cards, lens pen, and personal effects (wallet, keys etc) in the various other zipped pockets, and elasticated side pockets for water bottle, snacks etc. My only wish is that instead of using the good but consumer quality 75-300 I could include the 50-200 (with MMF-3 and/or teleconverter) without the bag being bulged completely out of shape. I love the 50-200 and would use it far more if I could include it in a carry around shoulder bag. At the moment it rarely sees the light of day except on e.g. nature reserve trips when I take my large Kata rucksack with heavier kit.
