Hi all...

I was looking for a Bag that would fit my GF1 with the EVF attached along with the adapter with the rokkor 58mm 1.2 lens attached. On the side I needed a compartment for one extra battery with the 20mm pancake lens. I really really like the domke f-5xb but then my friend has it and I don't want to copy her... can anyone pls suggest me something else? I am hoping for a sling or messenger type bag like that domke but not like a "lunchbox" type. Also I have a budget of about $75.

Thanks in advance every1...

hahaha... i did wanna copy it but then my girlfriend beat me too it and bought another color... it'll be awkward for 3 of us to have the same bag... maybe i might get it...
@m1pui... i was looking at that one before but then it has one main compartment and i don't know where my 20mm would fit if i have the camera in the main compartment without any dividers

I've been using Domke's for 30+ years ... they are fast (easy to get in and out of), comfy and extremely well made (USA). Get the bag. Okay, I've given it more thought ... I see you point ... get two bags, the Domke for when you shoot without your GF and a lesser bag (any bag would be a lesser bag) when you're shooting with the GF.

Take a look at the F-3x

It is small but more "photo" looking and much more macho than the 5x.

Spray paint something on it and then drag it along the ground until it looks worn. Then when everyone sees you together they will assume they copied you.:rolleyes:

Take a look at the f5xc, I like the lower lens compartment idea and I've been thinking about buying one.

Look around the frame, he appears to be doing ok financially ... Projector on the ceiling, acoustic behind the door, amp behind him (so 1 can assume there's at least one electric around), what he pulls out of the bag. ... Goofy, but loaded

Yes i like thats in that guy's bag too... love Leicas but way out of my budget... the F-3 is a bit too big and out of my budget too... i will very much consider the f-5xb... the f-5xc is nice for the lower compartment but also seems too be way too spacious on the top compartment... however i was considering this bag:
Amazon.com: Lowepro Photo Runner 100 Convertible Beltpack/Shoulder Bag for DSLR Cameras (Mica): Camera & Photo
what do you guys think about that one?

it will also fit a tabletop tripod whenever i need to carry one around to parties too
