    Hi

    Does anyone have the CS-35 ? Thinking about getting this as a general wrap. I tend to put the EM1 in a waterproof back, but it has no padding and so I want something just to protect it from the odd knock and to cover whilst putting it in my messenger bag around town. BC

    I do not know about the CS-35, but I have the Novoflex Wrap in size M, which suits me (respectively the cameras :biggrin:) well since my G1. Even the E-M5 with attached Oly 12-40 fits in.

    On multiple occasions I head the camera rapped this way and thrown into my backpack when I am out hiking. The only downside is, I am not sure whether they are selling world wide or not.

    I use this: Zing Standard SLR Camera Cover when tossing my camera into my day messenger bag. It's an E-M1 with the 17mm 1.8 and its hood mounted.

    It may be a tad tight with that lens though... Double check the size.

    Two old shemaghs - black and white for my GF1, black and green for my GF5. Keeps them nice and cosy if I'm just chucking them into my messenger bag and heading out.

    My luck.

    I just ordered two and THEN saw this thread.

    Hopefully all goes well.

    All good. Covers an E-M1 with the 12-40PRO and HLD-7 attached.

    Would post a pic but I can't wrap it anywhere as neatly as the promotional material.

    Just check eBay for neoprene wetsuit material or neoprene sponge and there's heaps available, just a bit of DIY required to make it suit.

    At $25 a pop, to provide just that little bit of additional protection while in my bag, I thought it was a no brainer. To find or produce a similar solution would cost me more money and time than I'd care to expend.

    The 300mm will be beyond my reach (no pun intended) but wouldn't be surprised in the least if it held the body and grip with the 40-150PRO attached. Looking forward to finding out.

    I don't have the CS-35, but it's been on my B&H wishlist for a while. What I like about it, compared to other solutions, is the built-in elastic band. Velcro is convenient, but kind of noisy.
