Billingham Hadley small. Not too big. Not too heavy. I have tried a few Ona bags and although they look nice, they are very stiff and too heavy. For leather, consider Wotancaft. Have a couple and they are nice. But I always return to my comfortable and usable Billingham bag. It's a no brainer.


Good.

Otherwise you'd have to change your name and confuse us all!

Nice...I just ordered one for all my gadgets. Leica Disto, color meter, notebook, tools, etc.


You'll be happy with it. My girlfriend has been using a Topo bag every day for 4+ years and it still looks new. They're a cool company, and everything is made in the Denver area. If you're ever there, stop in to their shop. We visited in September and it's a neat little space with good food nearby.

I'll be using a Topo Designs Field Bag. http://topodesigns.c...ducts/field-bag

 

 

Mine arrived today. I ordered the olive because it was on sale for $99...I almost didn't because its pretty loud looking on the website. But it looks great in person...and the bag is exceptional design and quality. I really like this bag. Probably not ideal for an M as it only has one divider, but it will actually hold more than my b-laika.

 

Thanks for sharing.

Yeah I hear you on the single divider. I guess it is suboptimal for carrying more than one lens since they're so small? Or just that an M body + lens is still smaller than the divided section? Is that what you're thinking? I'm coming from a DSLR to the M system so this bag may not work for me once I get my M10. I may actually go to a larger size Topo bag and use an insert, either by them or someone else, that can go inside to crade the camera. I'll probably be using just a single lens to start off so I'm truly not sure what to do bag-wise.

yes, It would need another insert to work. I can put 3 M lenses in pouches on one side and the other side is too large for an M + lens. With the right insert it would make a great M case. Im using it for my meters and other gear...its perfect.

I have a Domke bag, which is basically an overpriced storage bin for my equipment at home.  When I go out shooting, I usually just take the camera with one lens and perhaps a few ND filters stuffed into my pockets.  If I am going to be away from home, I will take the Domke with the full kit.

I admire our UK and European friends' selections of bags. There is a significant cultural gap from the USA where we are largely of rural influence and afraid of looking girlie. Yes, a shame. There are not many urban sophisticates who carry cameras.

 

I have two of these sling bags. One bland, another in dark blue. So shoot me. :)

The small pocket at the top holds 4 M9 batteries and a lot of SD cards.

There are two M9s with lenses in the main pouch, a SF24D  flash with extra batteries in the bottom,

and a third lens, 75mm Summilux in the middle front. Oh, and a handgun partition against

the body. I kid you not.  I use it for paper work.

Would it be more acceptable if remade in leather?

I have a guy who could do it.
