WTB - New/used bag for camera/grip/lens
So the bag I had that fit my t2i with grip and lens on just doesn't fit my new camera. I already have a bag that holds everything so I am looking for just a bag to protect the camera when I am going out and about with a single lens. Walking around the city with it around your neck isn't always the brightest ideas when going through certain places.
Ideally, it should hold the camera/grip/lens all attached and a couple filters. Any ideas on which ones I should be looking at? Also willing to buy used if you got something kicking around.
Lenses attached depending would either be ef-s 17-55 or ef 24-105 f4l so they are very similar size wise. I'm not talking a 50 or anything.

my wife bought me a lowepro slingshot. I think its the 200 (small one) but it fits my d90, a 20mm, a 50mm and a 70-210mm lens. There is still plenty of room for other stuff in there.
it would be a tight fit with all the lenses and a grip attached, though if you have only one lens you should have more than enough room. there is a decent amoung of adjustability. plus it carries pretty well and doesn't really scream camera too bad

Actually while looking on the lowepro site I think I want a toploader. My back I already have is perfect for when I want something for more than one lens. This thing looks right up my alley even though it does scream "camera".

Yeah, I have the bigger version of that bag. I use it for a d300 + grip with the 80-400 or 80-200. It's really high-quality and well thought out. It is comfy and hangs well, and it is easy to get the camera in and out of it.
My only beef is that the weather cover is overly bulky in the pocket and tough to get on/off with the elastic cord permanently attaching it. Cut the cord and leave the cover at home if it isn't going to rain.

I like my slingshot, not quite big enough to carry with the 70-200 if I have another lens on the body..40-14

Would it be awkward putting the camera in the longer bag with a smaller lens? Would it sink down or would the sides stop it and just let it have more room past the lens? I assume the latter would be the case.
Having that ability would be nice but if it would be awkward for more everyday lenses than I don't want to suffer

Are you familiar with thinkTANK photo bags?

I just got the 30 V2.0. Good stuff.

That thing looks sweet but it doesn't look like it would fit a grip. I'm on my phone so I'll check other models put later. I like the idea of the extension!

Woops. If you have a battery grip, go with the 40. Same size, just fit for "pro" size DSLR's. I think they make the best holster packs available. The picture doesn't show it, but there is a nice rain-fly that pulls out to cover the bag too. Very handy.

I received a Clik Elite pack for my birthday about a month ago but exchanged it for the thinkTANK. Better fit, more padding, and costs less.
