Suggestions please for your fave shoulder bags for K-5 and attached lens, plus 1 or 2 other lenses with hoods and small accessories e.g. batteries cards, cloths, remote ... One additional lens would be 55-300, perhaps another prime or two. Generally a Tamron 17-50mm on the camera.

I was looking at Stealth Reporter D100 AW, any other good ones?
Preferably nothing too expensive and to be found easily on ebay etc...

Thanks
Lurking is shirking.!

Hi Doug

I use a Kata 465i and my K10 plus sigma 70-300 fitted will fit in this - I can carry up to 5 additional lenses in the bottom and other items in the top - it works well.

Plenty of pockets etc - I think it is weel worth a look.

Cheers

Stu
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

Try one from these from F-stop I use their Tilopa BC and have never looked back. Extremely well made.

Cheers, I should say small shoulder bag, not back pack. Cloths, I mean lens cloth not clothes.

Thanks

I really like the Domke bags but can't justify the price...

So my sister (who makes ladies handbags) is stealing the design and making me one...

I've got a Crumpler Messenger Boy 2500. Fits a K7 plus kit lens with room for a larger zoom and a prime e.g. a sigma 10-20 and an FA50mm. You could get a flash in there as well, at a push. There's a front pocket which fits a remote, some filters, SDcards etc.

It looks quite good and non-camera baggy. The next size up will enable you to cram even more in but I prefer to keep things compact.

I have a Lowpro Passport Slingshot.
there is an incert with the bag which I could get my K5 with kit lens and Tamron 70-300 in. The bag opens out supposedly to fit personal items I think but I put an incert from a National Geographic bag I had an now get a 35mm lens and a couple of manual lens in there as well had have room left for a case of filters and flash gun in an case also 2 small internal pockets for cards and batteries but they are small but hold what i need.Also a few other bits and bats in there remote and cloth and a how to booklet.Has pockets on the outside but to be honest not much good.But I love the bag and use daily.

I second the Kata 465i. I have a 467i model (a small backpack) and it is still going strong after three years of abuse. Well-made kit, imho, and it doesn't look so obviously a bag stuffed with goodies as some others. If I recall, price was around 65-70 which was good for the quality.

I used the same bag as my main bag for a couple of years it is a cracking bag. Still use it sometimes good for long journeys. Only replaced as I liked the look of the Lowepro and I seem to have developed an adiction to camera bags. Most Women have a large shoe collection but I have a large camera bag one

I bought the pentax "K" bag from another member and find it ideal for days out with a K7 with 18-135 attached and a tamron 10-24 and pentax 55-300.

I use a Tamrac Rally 6 - takes the K-x with my 18-250 attached in the centre , flash , the 35 and still masses of room for the assorted gubbins . My iPad will go in the back pocket [ only realised that the other day ] and keys [ house type] wallet purse camera cards etc etc go in the front pocket .

I'm flying out to Dublin soon with only cabin luggage - so theTamrac counts as a camera bag and will act as a handbag as well

It's maybe a bit pricey to be included as "nothing too expensive" but the Billingham Hadley pro works brilliantly.




Best regards, John

The best bag I found is a Kata 3n1. having two straps is much better thanall the weight being on one shoulder,I did have the LowePro slingshot but found the Kata much more comfortable. But I have now gone back to LowePro and the S&F Vest and Belt system which works fine for me.
