Default Shoulder Bag

I have a backpack that I love: Kata 467i
But I want a shoulder bag. Will the Domke F-2 be enough to carry:
5DII
EF 35mm f1.4
EF 50 mm f1.5
EF 135mm f2
430 EX II

What is your suggestion for a shoulder bag? I like the domke style!

F-2 gonna be way bigger IMP
F3X is enough for you.
If you don't have a grip, maybe Billingham hadley pro is another option for you

Agree that the F3x would be better, or maybe the F6 or F-803 (F803 only if you don't use a grip).

I have an F3X and an F2...I prefer to carry the F3X. Qualify that, I haven't changed the insert in my F2. I can't find them here to try and buy at a reasonable cost.

I added a Domke Postal Pad for the strap of each bag. They make a huge difference for me. The strap is more comfortable with the bag loaded. It stays on my shoulder even better than the basic Domke Gripper strap that comes on the bag. I also added metal carabiners to replace the plastic fittings Tiffen/Domke use to attach the strap to the bag.

F3X is one of my favourite shooter bags.

(I have 2 Billingham bags. My Billingham Hadley Pro would carry that load too. Cost here for me in Canada was comparable to Cdn cost for a Think Tank or Domke bag. It may be more expensive in other markets. The BillyBag has more padding, is waterproof, and is easy to shoot from. It is heavier, and needs a pad on the strap. )

Have you looked at Think Tank? I have the Retro-10 and love it.

Ditto. Great travel combo unless there's a reason for me to haul long glass along as well.

I should do a review to go with the couple others here. It holds so much and I'm so organized now. The thing is definitely designed for the photojournalist on the move, out n' about, working.
