Welocme to the forum! You could look at these from SRS:

I use a Billingham Hadley Pro bag, but of course there's no Pentax logo on it. I do have a collection of bags with the Pentax logo, so an ebay search may bring up some of the bags that have been available in the past.
Best regards, John

G'day and welcome.

You might also wish to consider the value of discretion... Sometimes, advertising does not pay .

John. What price do these bags fetch?

Generally, people don't value second hand bags too much, so I've managed to collect a number of Pentax bags at quite low cost. I am still looking for a Speedbag M, but I did manage to find an original Spotmatic-era Speedbag.

I'm thinking of buying the new Jill-e handbag for Sue.
Best regards, John

OT - check the weight of the Jill-E bag before you buy it John - I had a look at some and was shocked by how heavy they were empty.

I bought a Crumpler Pretty Bella 7500 in Oatmeal in the end as it was girly but still light. I am thinking of selling it as I am trying to reduce my bag collection now (though so far without any success ).

My Pentax bag, rescued from a charity shop is light blue.
Interestingly, the Pentax leather and metal logo seems to be attached via velcro.

I have no interest in this bag. I am willing to send it to a new home, but!! having sent the camera to a member and received not a single thanks or offer to refund postage, I will need to ask for a donation to that charity shop. Any takers.

Hi.

I think in this day and age, the less your bag looks like a camera bag the better.
There is always a pair of eagle eyes, watching and ready to make a quick snatch.
Sad but true.

Take care.

Oh Chris you'll give everyone nightmares, with that gloomy picture you paint! I also prefer a discreet bag though, but mainly because of not wanting to look too nerdy when i'm out and about

Just bought a crumpler 2500 from srs for under twenty quid. It's excellent but you'd need something bigger if you want to stow more than one spare zoom. It would take a k5 with zoom fitted and three or more primes though.
