    I have a 30 year-old camera bag which I used to carry my Pentax gear about in. Still use it for my G1 and three primes as it's very well padded.

    BUT It's rather large and square to carry about on a day hike. Can anyone recommend a compact bag that will take my G1 body, with a small prime clipped onto it and my Sigma 60/2.8.

    I've had a look at the Think tank Mover 20, and that's about the size I'm after. Any other suggestions.

    All comments welcome

    I bought a Tamrac jazz 36 - here's one for $25
    ideal for mirrorless cam and 2-3 lenses, with pockets & pouches for other items (or pancakes!).

    Here's what a dSLR does to all that space! :eek:

    Wow, that 12-32 is small! The way your picture is composed I first thought it was a tele-converter to go with the zoom beside it ;-)

    Wish I still had that 12-32 :( but lately I've mutated to Oly gear. It would still be most welcome if one found its way back to me! :D

    This is my favourite bag, and I have tried several including the expensive ONA The Bowery.

    I have a Crumpler 3 million dollar home that would be perfect for that.

    I'm actually about to list it...

    Maybe check out the Domke F-5XB? I've had one for a while and in my opinion it's just about the sweet spot for one body+lens and a couple of other lenses, with a pocket for spare battery/filter/etc. If you stack smaller lenses or get creative with dividers you can pack quite a bit more in there.

    Domke F-10 is nearly same size as F-5XB, but has better access.

    @Akashi@Akashi, Could you tell me the name of the Lowepro bag that you posted in your reply. I cannot find it on the Lowepro website.

    Looks like one of Passport Slings...

    Yep Passport sling. I have version I, but I think it is near identical to version II. What I love about it is the expandable option (zipper in the back) and the removable photo insert. I pack it flat in my suitcase when I travel and can use it as a bag for stuff, computer etc or photo when I arrive. Super good. I can easily slide it to my front to get control when I am in crowds (pickpockets) and it is water resistant, easy to wear and cheap (relatively). [/commercial] :) The best bag I have tried.

    EDIT: I see you use G1 with three primes The downside with this bag is then that the photo compartment only has two slots. One for camera with lens. The other can be configured (with a flap) so that it divides horizontally if the primes dont fit side by side. It works great. There are internal pockets for extra battery and one special for extra memory card (SD).

    Camera and one prime will do. Most of the time I have the 20/1.7 clipped on and carry the Sigma 60 just in case I need to go tight. My 12/2.0 stays at home, but is very useful when "cramped".

    I've recently received a Cosy Speed Street-O-Matic which I am going to use while hiking in Iceland. It's really nice because it's not too big. I can fit a Gx7 with either P7-14 or S60 attached and the other one next to it with the GX7 face down. I could probably also fit the P20 into the side pocket, if I wanted to.

    I have the Tenba DNA, which can carry a body+lens and two other lenses. You can access your gear from the top opening and is easy to transport. It's a bit pricey, however I like it.
