    A new line of camera bags from Think Tank Photo designed for mirrorless cameras. They have magnetic clasps instead of velcro which will be nice for keeping the noise down.

    Mirrorless Movers

    Of course I just bought a bag from them a few weeks ago.

    Of course :biggrin:

    That being said, the retrospective 7 rocks as a mirrorless mover (plus iPad)...

    Looks like another hot prospect for my ever growing camera bag collection.

    Yes, bought the Retro 7 some weeksago but still looks the better option for me.

    I have 6 lenses which fit nicely into Retro7, the new bag is much smaller (only 27cm lngth). Will possibly only take 4 lenses.

    Hopefully these sell well and other bag makers will jump on the bandwagon. More options is always good.

    Are the magnetic clasps okay with all the electronics inside the bag?

    Very few electronics are harmed by magnets these days. iPads and Macbooks have magnets built in even. Solid state storage is far more resilient than older media.

    Sell them if you are not using them. I just sold one large LowePro bag to B&H along with a old tripod and got back $90.00. :smile: I only used that bad 3x.
    Anyway on the ThinkTank bags they look good and I need a new bag. :smile:

    Hmmm....I still like my Retrospective - but I can see using this when you want to travel with minimum gear :smile:

    Those TT Mirrorless Movers are all to thin to carry a gripped OM-D. I think the TT Sub Urban Disguise 20 is a better option for the gripped OM-D.

    Exactly, I'm keeping a close look at these. Currently using a Kata Lite 433-DL for the minimum gear eve-ry-day. :biggrin:

    These look to be made from the same material that the city walkers are made from. I have the CW10, and I love it.

    Ron, I can fit in G3 or GX1 with 12-35 in there. GH3 with 12-35 is a very tight fit, but doable. GH3 with the 20 is no prob.

    Currently, I'm carrying a Leica MM + 50 1.4 in there. + extra battery, extra cellphone battery, extra SD, my aviator shades, etc...

    The bag is good for everyday use with minimal gear. I recommend it.

    Thanks, Dave: I still have a larger Kata bag from my DSLR days and find them to be good quality.

    TT keeps churning out product but I'm not as impressed.
    The City Walker series has a huge bulky insert, and these have not only a flap but zippered top, which IMHO reduces quick access. More variety is great, I have 4 TT bags, but I'm less and less interested in their lineup.
    If they made a version of the Domke J803 that was slightly deeper and a few more of their feature I'd be all over it. Wait, that's what I built from a CW 10, never mind.
