That's a great deal!
One additional picture on B&H.
Reviews aren't good, but great deal, thanks for the post!
for 8 bucks, ill give it a try.
Just bought it
$17Aud shipped to australia. Pretty good
Bad reviews but I'll slap some Velcro on the flap and if it sucks, just use it as a storage bag! Haha.
Thanks for the heads up
Just placed my order too...thank you.
I won't buy it, as I don't like these kinds of bags (I am using a messenger wrap inside of whatever bag/backpack I'm taking), but it's virtually free at that price.
I bought one, I need a small bag when I leave the large one home. The price is what shipping costs on a lot of stuff, and it was Prime, so I will see it in a few days.
Price has gone up.

I received the bag today; as some of the reviews mention, the shoulder strap is not removable, and securely closing the bag requires hooking another strap together instead of a more typical latch or velcro.
The inside of the bag IS padded, despite some reviewers saying it isn't.
The side pockets are fairly useless as they're loose and have no elastic, so batteries, etc. would fall out. However, I see that a skinny 12oz water bottle can fit well.
There is a zippered pocket in the flap, should be OK for some filters.
I like that it is smaller than my 'laptop' messenger bag (and bigger than my MM10), so I'm sure it will be useful when wanting to travel with the body + a couple lenses.
I don't think the 40-150mm Pro lens is going to fit well with the body and the 12-40mm though; will have to try when I get home.
Definitely not bad for $8, or even $25, if the size is convenient for one's kit.
I just got mine as well and agree with most of barry13s comments above.
It just barely fits an 11" Macbook Air, which is nice. I also like that it has lots of pockets although I wish one of the side pockets was bigger so it could hold a bigger water bottle. It's nice and lightweight and doesn't scream "camera bag," which is always a plus.
The clasp on the front is weird and I don't exactly trust it, but it looks like it would be fairly easy to replace. Definitely worth it for the price, although I wouldn't pay much more for it without a better clasp.
I now have the following in the bag:
iPad retina, with Apple shell case.
40-150mm Pro w MC-14 mounted, with hood retracted and tripod foot in place. Tripod foot is rotated forward, as rearward would press against tablet or laptop screen.
Standing vertically with front element upwards. Still room for a CPL filter.
9mm BCL, adjacent to 40-150, with small divider between.
17mm f1.8 Oly w hood reversed
45mm Oly w hood reversed and filter.
I have both of these in the right partition, so one is in a cloth pouch to prevent them from scratching each other.
E-M1 body, with Joby sling
12-40mm, either on the E-M1 or in the bottom center, with filter.
If off-body, I can put one of the petition dividers over it and put the body with a small lens mounted on top.
Inside (top) pocket:
E-M1 flash, in its pouch
2 BLN-1 batteries
Skinny 12oz water bottle, side pocket
Granola bar, other side pocket
Caps for MC-14, outer front zipper pocket.
There's still room in the inner and outer front pockets for a charger, lens paper, etc.
Filters over 72mm probably won't fit in any of the pockets, fwiw.
I totally missed out on this.
Sounds like a very large bag. Probably oversize for me. I'm waiting for mine.
Mine was $8.01 at Amazon.
For $8, it's a great deal. I won't be lugging around my 6D or 1D3 in it, but my SL1 and accessories will fit just nicely. Or toss in my G5 with some legacy glass, and I'm ready to go. Thanks for the heads up on this!
I got mine yesterday. It will get used, but it's not a bag I would have purchased if it had cost more. I'm not to crazy about the front latch either.
I paid $39.95 for mine several months ago, and except for the clasp, am very happy with it. I carry in it two E-M5 bodies, a 20mm Panasonic, a 45mm Oly, and a 14-140-II Panasonic, the small Oly flash, two extra batteries and the charger, plus my iPad.
