    Hey, that looks like my bag! :) With the larger zooms you can't quite get as much stuff in - so far the kit I've packed in it was either the 7-14/4 and the 35-100/2.8, or the 12-35/2.8 and the 35-100/2.8, with the 20/1.7 in the side under the rain bag. You can put the 100-300 in it with something like the 7-14 mounted as well.

    The tiny lenses I have really make a small kit that fits comfortably on the bag, and for me is just what makes sense with this GX80, though I'd love to put my hands on your zooms ;)

    I can pack lighter when desired with the 17/1.8 and the 45/1.8 and the throw in the Rokinon fish eye instead of the 7-14. The Pany 2.8 zooms balances nicely on the GX85, I don't find them large or heavy at all. For traveling I prefer to bring the zooms with the 20/1.7 down in the bottom of the bag. The two zooms share filter size so I throw in a Canon close up lens and a 4x ND in the pouches.

    The Cooper 8 is very similar to my DNA 8 in size. Very nice bag for a small kit. I can get my EM1 w12/40 mounted, 40-150 R on one side and 17 f1.8 or 9-18 on the other with some room to spare.

    There wasn't a DNA 8 bag at the store I was at to compare. Isn't the DNA series a little less expensive than the cooper series? I would have liked a choice but have enjoyed the cooper.

    Yeah, the DNA series is less expensive. The Cooper is intended to be a premium line. I like the DNA and the new ones with Silent Velcro are even better!

    It sounds like the DNA is slightly larger, the Cooper has the silent Velcro as well.

    That's a very nice looking kit - camera, bag and strap. I've been thinking about that Cooper bag, what colour is that one called? And do you have a link to where you bought that strap? Very nice outfit, well done.

    I bought the strap here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B001QITYFM/ref=pe_385721_129312631_TE_dp_1

    The Tenba Cooper color is Grey Canvas / Black Leather.

    Thanks for posting those photos. I am strongly considering this exact bag.

    Will this bag fit a 10-inch iPad?

    If you're asking about the Tenba Cooper 8, their website says it'll fit an iPad Mini or other 8" tablet. So, not the 9.7" iPad. I have the similar sized DNA 8 and it fits a Mini comfortably. You'd need to go a little bigger.

    To fit the ipad (9.7") there is the Tenba Switch 10 that I own.
    Very good bag (similar to this Cooper 8) and light.
    It fits easlisy GX80 + 12-32mm + 42.5mm F1.7 + 35-100mm F4-5.6 + 7-14mm F4 + 15mm F1.7 + ipad.
