Re: A1 Bag- lens barrel down?

I've got mine in a more rectangular bag, sitting on its side. For some reason it seems safer that way- but are most folks using these zoom bags with the lens down?

Do you need extra padding at the bottom? And/or are you stowing it with the hood engaged?

Another vote for the LowePro TLZ Mini:

The A1 fits in there quite nicely, with a bit of room at the top to
accomodate the CF cards I've got in the interior pocket. A big
pocket on the front would hold several extra batteries -- I've only
got one extra, which seems entirely sufficient. I keep a neck
strap that I can clip onto the camera when needed plus the extra
battery there.

The TLZ Mini has a good handle on the top (lens pointing down), and
I put the A1 in there so the bottom of the camera sits on the
"bottom" of the case, and lay it down that way. Kind of have to
think more three-dimensionally with this case than any other I've
