Up to this point I have been deluding myself that my backpack would do just fine as a camera bag, I have found it to be a little impractical and now see that a dedicated messenger type camera bag is the better option. To be honest, it was initially the $100+ price tag that put me off...but I have seen the light. 2 bags that have caught my eye, both in terms of features and their appealing 'not a camera bag' look. The Domke f-5xb and the ThinkTank Retrospective 5. Unfortunately though, no retail outlet in Melbourne that I've called has any stock so I can't see for myself and I have an inherent distrust of eBay descriptions. I was hoping someone on this forum may have either (or has tried both) and can tell me in real terms their 'user experience' as opposed to some advertising line. The kit I need it for: GF1 +vf1 14/2.5 25/1.4 45/1.8 50/1.4 smc takumar (only occasionally) Spare battery 4 filters + 2 step-up rings Lenspen + small microfiber cloth Pen + small notepad Have you got a similar sized kit ? How have you managed with your kit and either of the 2 bags mentioned ? All input much appreciated. Cheers.
