Camera Bag (Domke F2 Style)

A few years ago I became fixated that the one thing that would drastically improve my photography - would be a New Camera Bag! (We've all been there - haven't we?).

After a bit of research I concluded that a 'Domke F2' would suit:

- but it was rather more than I was prepared to pay. On further research I found that the Chinese 'Mekko' bags had several recommendations, and were considerably cheaper than the 'Domke', but the only sellers were in the U.S.. I eventually ended up ordering this one:

- (though the dimensions are slightly different to the current models.)

When the bag arrived, I found that after import duties and V.A.T. I ended up paying about as much as if I'd bought the 'Domke' in the U.K!

I was not disappointed with the bag - it's very substantial and well made (it weighs 2.4Kg), but by the time it came I'd come to and realised that it wasn't a new bag that would improve my photography after all and it's remained on a shelf! It's only been out of the house a couple of times - hence its condition is 'as new'.

I'm asking 50 plus postage for the bag, and if there's any interest I'll post photos. It would suit those of you with a brand new EM1X!
