What Bag with E-5/Hand Strap Combo?
Feb 26, 2011

This may seem like (actually it may well be!) a question that has been beaten to death.

But while I've been doing photography for years, it's usually been with a single reasonably lightweight camera-lens combo (even in my old SLR days).

The E-5 is a bit heavier and I'm a lot older, so there is a bit of a new challenge.

I can go with a Camdapter wrist strap, in which case I need to use a bag (not a backpack tho) with quick access. I'd prefer one that will hold the camera with one lens attached, and maybe one extra lens, lightweight.

It will not be used for travel purposes, only out of my car and for street shooting.

My other option is to only use a bag to transport the camera and lenses in the car, and then use a shoulder strap or neck strap for walking around with the camera and lens. Walking around extendedly with just the hand strap doesn't seem like a great idea.

What's your preference? Specific recommendations welcome and appreciated.
