Another great camera bag :-)

I just bought a Lowepro Topload Zoom AW camera bag.
I just wanted something I could carry the either 14-35 or 35-100 attached to the E3.
Well the bag is all that and more as I found out to my delight. I can fit the E3 with 14-35 with lens hood attached ready to use and it's dead easy to access instantly, but I can also fit either the ZD50mm f2 or the 40-150 and a teleconvertor in the front pouch and a spare battery and lens cleaner in the bottom pouch, again all easily accesible.
I can fit the E3 with the 35-100 with hood reversed and and either the 50mm f2 or the 14-42 and a teleconvertor in the front pouch.

All in all a fantastic little bag where you intend to use a particular lens but want another lens "just incase".

It makes a very compact not too heavy and very accessible carry bag, thoroughly recommended escpecially as it only cost 34 :-)

Re: Another great camera bag :-)

I have had one of those for a good few years now. Don't use it a lot but it is handy when I just want to take out the E-3/50-200 combo. And the EC-20 can fit in the bottom section with other stuff in the front. Mine came with the shoulder straps to wear it either on your chest or back - have been useful sometimes.
All have had lots of Lowepro bags in the past and I have found them all to be great. Then again most of the top name bags are pretty good. Unfortunately I need a bigger main one now (such as the Vertex 200) but trying to convince the missus that I do may well be nigh on impossible

Looks good but serves a different purpose to the one I described which is just a small compact bag for a camera with a large lens attached.

Re: Another great camera bag :-)

Know what you mean
Got a small bag that will fit my camera and a 14-42. Then I had to upgrade to get room for the 40-150. Then came the flash, and the extras and a 50-200... You know the story

Yep I know the feeling, I've got 5 bags now, although they all have their uses, think I'm sorted now, well for the time being anyway lol.

Re: Another great camera bag :-)

As a matter of interest which model of bag is it in the photo?
It looks just the sort of thing I'm after.
I use a Topload Zoom 65 for the E-3 with 12-60 attached but want to upgrade to bag which will also hold the 50-200, 35 macro EC14 , filters, kitchen sink, etc.

Re: Another great camera bag :-)

I really like the Tamrac Digital Zoom series of top-loaders. I got a small one of these when I first bought my E410, but could now do with a longer one. The trouble is that I've been banned from buying any more bags for a few years! - or lenses... - or bodies....

It's the Lowepro Fastpack 250 (Room for 15.4" laptop). It also comes in a 350 version for 17" laptop. Got my 50-200, both kit-lenses, FL-36 and OM50mm with macro rings.

I carry about the same gear plus a Cokin Z filter box.
I don't carry a laptop with my camera but the pocket would be ideal for my Lastolite reflector and my mat for sitting on.
Important stuff, keep the backside dry.
I'm sure that most photographers' bags are a bit like women's handbags with rather a lot of minor clutter such as extra cards, batteries, notebook and also in my case binoculars, swiss army knife and emergency chocolate.
