Does any one use the PD 6L sling bag to carry a SL2 with 24-90 Elmarit attached?

Is there any space left to carry small accessories like blower, table top tripod,etc? and how does it feel to carry for 2-3 hours?

any other similar alternatives?

Thanks for posting the image. It gives a clear picture. How long have you had the bag and are you happy with it?

I have many bags, this one goes on city bike trips as it is easy to attach on handlebar . I am not been fun of PD products, but this does the job and it was on sale.

I use the 6L for the CL and the SL2. It's great with the CL and a couple TL lens's, I think the biggest lens I've put in there with the SL2 is the Sigma 24-70 or Sigma 105mm. Like you see above there isn't for room for anything else. I like the 6L, it's easy to access and carries comfortably. I like the little security zipper feature and waterproofness. The only thing I don't like, and frequently need is a place to store a water bottle. I picked up a Manfrotto sling/backpack for the SL2 and it's ok as a backpack, but not great as a sling. Still looking for the perfect setup.

I think the PD 6 is a great bag for SL2, shown here with two SL Summicrons. Very comfortable fit in the vertical position as the bag is designed to function. I'm not sure how much larger the 24-90 is though, as I don't own any zooms.

I love the PD Everyday Slings. So well designed, so comfortable, so expandable, so versatile, so well made. I like how when opened out the top flap acts like a small shelf when fiddling with accessories, etc.

The 5L is perfect for an M system and will easily fit up to 1-2 bodies and a number of lenses and accessories, or one body, 2 lenses and some odds' and ends (including a compact rain jacket, etc.

I use a 10L for my SL system. I think the 6L is just too small and I like having my bags as compact as possible . Anything smaller than the 10L doesn't accommodate the hoods which although bulky, are extremely effective for sun, rain, and lens protection.  A 6L may well work with SL Summicrons but would be a squeeze with anything more than one zoom.
As you can see I've packed an SL2 and both 16-35 and 24-90 SL lenses (although I often take one or two M lenses instead of the second zoom).  If it's not clear from the second photo, the divider under the camera is sloped up towards the middle of the bag to support the lens. Under this there is easily enough room for a charger or what ever accessory may fit (I use apple charger plugs rather than cables for my chargers to make them even more compact).

Regards,

Mark

I hope this helps....

SL2 with 24-90 mounted (hood is  fitted but it does not extend beyond the lens cap so doesn't add to the length of the lens), 16-35 sitting next door, the other divider folded over does give more space for another short lens or accessories.

However, you can see that the camera eyepiece sits too high.  It is hard to zip up, the eyepiece distorts the lid so there is less protection from impact.

I'd not be comfortable using this setup.

Thanks a lot! At least that means you can 'park' the camera there momentarily (and would fit e.g. a summicron SL)

 

I have a Manhattan Portage Aperture shoulder bag that (just) takes the 24-90+SL2S nose down. It is a bit lighter, and otherwise great, but is not so comfortable when travelling by bicycle.

I think there could be a chance road bumps/jolts could damage the camera's IBIS mechanism if the camera + bag is attached directly to a bicycle frame or handle bar. Probably better to wear the bag with camera secured to your body to somewhat help absorb bumps while riding the bike. I don't know this as a fact, just posting as a precaution.

Here are photos of 6L with SL2-s + SL35mm (with / without hood). There’s not much space except for batteries and small items. The two elastic side pockets are not much use as they eat into the bag’s space rather than expand outward. It is a bit tight for me.
