Bag for OM-D E-M1 with HLD-7

Hey

I am looking to buy a bag for my new e-m1. I always have the hld-7 attached to it with a 12-50mm, or a 45mm (f1.8) so I preferably would like to accommodate all of them. I had a close look at the olympus large shoulder bag but it's not that convenient for me.

Any ideas of alternative options?

Thanks!

Re: Bag for OM-D E-M1 with HLD-7

I bought a Think Tank Photo "City Walker 10" as I realized I didn't have any bags deep enough to handle the E-M1 with HLD-7 fitted and either my ZD 11-22 or ZD 50-200. It's a medium size bag, quite light weight, with enough pockets and space for a walk'n'shoot day carrying camera and my larger lenses.

See the thinktankphoto.com website for more information.

Comes with a full (detachable) rain cover too for inclement circumstances.

Re: Bag for OM-D E-M1 with HLD-7

I've just bought a Aero 50.
Nothing fancy, just very good quality, excellent value. and it's very compact.

It holds ...
OM-D E-M1 with HLD-7 + 12-40 fitted.
Samyang 7.5
Oly 60mm
Oly 40-150R
OM-D E-M1 kit flash.
Wireless remote control.
There are pockets to front and sides for bits and pieces.

Thank you all for your replies!

I really liked the retrospective series from think tank as I would prefer a small shoulder bag

Re: Bag for OM-D E-M1 with HLD-7

I have just ordered the manfrotto Bella IV from amazon as I was looking for something similar. I will check and see if my omd fits with its grip. If not ill send it back to amazon and consider alternatives.

Thanks everyone!
