Camera bag weighty issues
May 1, 2014

Recommendations for m43 camera bags on this forum tend to be in the 2 pound (1.5 to 2.5 pound or .7 to 1.1 kg) range.

My full walk around setup is only 2.5 pounds (E-M5, 7-14, 12-50, 40-150).   Camera bags that almost double this seem excessive, especially considering that many move to m43 for lighter weight.  I realize a DSLR kit would weigh substantially more, but it seems odd to prefer bags that add so much to kit weight.

What do you think?
