I actually ordered Lowepro Event Messenger 150! It's somewhere in Finnish mail at the moment. I decided, that I don't take more equipment for my trip to Italy, than fits to the bag!

Good idea. I just got back from Tuscany and Venice and it was too hot for me to carry my backpack simply because I rely on that surface area (my back) to radiate heat! A shoulder bag that could accomodate one extra lens and my flash would have been much more managable.

As it was, I think I only took about six shots with my 70-200 and perhaps another half dozen with my 10-24. Everything else was with my new 17-70/f2.8-4 which, I'm happy to report,
turned out to be a nearly ideal walking-around lens.
