It's My Bag, Baby!
May 16, 2012

Thought you might want to see the bag I bought for my still-backordered OMD, as well as the 'finalists' that might suit your needs/tastes even more.

I based this on being able to handle body w/12-50 mounted, 40-150, 14mm pancake & flash (maybe w/grip eventually)...and maybe another lens down the line. I wanted a thin profile, about 10-12" long and not too tall....but not too 'purse-looking' (kinda hard w/that criteria!) I'm not big into buckles, at least those that single-handedly keep the lid closed...but some of the ones I liked have 'em, of course.

I bought this Think Tank Retrospective 5. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/847336-REG/Think_Tank_746_Retrospective_5_Shoulder_Bag.htm It just 'spoke' to me...their website (which shows better pics!) says it best: Our product designers have blended the look and feel of "old-school" camera bags and infused it with "new-school" features and technology for the digital imaging age. Here's the website: http://www.thinktankphoto.com/products/retrospective-5-pinestone.aspx

I ALMOST talked myself into a Billingham, either the L2: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/357777-REG/Billingham_501701_01_L2_Bag_Black_with.html or the Hadley Shoulder Bag Small: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/220634-REG/Billingham_503301_01_Hadley_Shoulder_Bag_Small.html

I might regret passing on these (I think I woulda gone w/the L2), but I just couldn't swallow $200 for a bag that didn't even include a shoulder-strap pad ($35 extra). Gorgeous, great divider system & they are beloved by owners.

The Domke F-10 was one of the first I zeroed in on, and it still was strong at the finish: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/693324-REG/Domke_700_00G_F_10_JD_Medium_Shoulder.html Note that the one in the link is on sale for $30-40 less than the other F-10 color-options.

That's it...hope I gave you some good ideas!
