Saw this while researching the F-2 bag. I really like the dark brown. Its not a conspicuous as the sand and not as blah as the black. Does anyone have any further word when this might be available?

Should you put a camera in a camera bag?external link

When I first designed the Domke Bag in 1977, I felt it was best to always have one camera with a wide-angle lens out of the bag ready to capture an unexpected moment on film.
I still think you need to keep a camera with you and be ready for some unexpected moment. But now with a zoom lens on it and you can keep it in a camera bag, as long as it is a Domke Bag.
My other idea was that you needed another camera in the bag without any lens attached. 30 years ago, we didn't have sharp professional quality zoom lenses and the time it took to take one lens off and put another one on might mean missing the shot. That's how a newspaper photographer worked.
The Domke Bag celebrates 30 years of being in production this year and although there have been a lot of changes in photo equipment, the F2 still is one of the easiest way to carry and quickly get to photo gear. (Note: Later this year the original dark brown canvas version will be reintroduced.) Brown goes with everything.
Today the photo gear is smaller and lighter, plus, zoom lens eliminated having to carry 8 lenses in the bag. With digital cameras, it has eliminated having to carry one camera body loaded with color film along with another camera for black and white film.
My side pocket, which once held 20 rolls of film, now carries a tape recorder, dust blaster and extra batteries.
I still think cotton canvas duck is the best material for a shoulder bag, especially useful when working with electronic cameras because the cotton canvas will absorb moisture and prevent condensation.
The secret is to just keep it simple, both in designing camera bags and when shooting pictures.

Sorry, I don't. If you desperately want one, my sister has one of the classic ones she might be willing to swap or sell.
