I'd like to get a second bag in addition to my big/carry everything bag. A light - walkaround with easy access to just one body with a 70-200 attached... any suggestions?

Think Tank "Digital Holster" (they are expandable for hood ready-to-shoot or hood reversed for carry)

Did you want the hood reversed (10"), or ready to shoot (12.5")? Nothing else in the bag?

Domke F-3X (might be bigger than you need)

My best shooter bag is my Domke. I've got 2--F3/x and F2. I also have a Retro10 that I'm starting to like. I don't like the raincover on it. It leaves a part of the bag's back uncovered.
For ease of carrying, and working quickly? Domke.
I'm starting to like my old LowePro Stealth Reporter more and more. It's a shooter bag too; comes in different sizes depending on needs.
if you look at Domke, consider getting one of their Postal Pads (shoulder pad), They really work! Bag seems even lighter.
I hope that Jon steps in. He knows Domke!

I also love my Domke F-3X with the postal pad. I normally have my 24-105 attached with my 70-200 in a side pocket, works great.

And yes, Jon will definitely step in =)

I'll put in my recommendation for the Domke F-3X as well. Just picked it up last week, and it fits my 5DII with 70-200 f4 attached as well as room for a couple more lens, 580EXII, and an iPad2. I found it much easier to grab the camera in & out than fiddling with the zipper on my backpack. I did start feeling the strap on the shoulder after a couple hours, so I'll probably pick up the postal pad.

I just picked up a used ThinkTank Urban Disguise 35 for the same reasons.

I use the F3x for one body and the 70-200 (and another lens or two) as well. If you don't want any more than the body and 70-200, it'll have room to spare but since it's not padded to excess, it'll collapse nicely. Or you could try an F5c (for an ungripped body) or F6.

Think Tank UD 30 is still available in some places. You'll have room for a fill flash if needed on certain days.

The UD 30 is too small to have a 70-200 attached.

Sweet, thanks folks. Always such great feedback in here. I wish all forums were as helpful as this one.

I think I'm going to go with the Lowepro toploader zoom. Need something cheap - something to be my walking on the beach bag - sidewalk in the city bag.

I keep coming here because the other ones aren't like this one! The participants are great. I always learn something that helps. Thanks for your post!

Best

ps there should be a way to pick up on used bags/just like new. I know I have a few. On another forum I worked a swap for a Domke F2 that was just like new, but missing the hand strap. It's an addiction for me, I'm sure.

I'm always making mistakes. :) I always learn when reading your posts.

OP, keep in mind in the event you might use a fill flash. Or maybe you have an onboard flash that works for you. The UD 30 is a touch larger than the holster. Think of it as filling in the negative space in the triangular shape of the holster. So whereas I would add a pouch to a holster, the 30 carries body, lens and flash in a neater appearance.

Edited to add:

I had these images laying around for a while and they just came in handy. First one depicts the Holster 20 v2 with the UD30. Second image depicts the same holster with UD35 v2.

The UD30 is a good “keep it simple bag”. No facility to add pouches, but if you need just one more peice of gear, you can wear, for instance, a skin pouch on the belt.

If you are wanting just the body/no grip and the 70-200, I use the TT Holster and it fits well and makes life very easy. More than that, the Domke the Jon recommended is what I use for the 5D2 with 24-70 attached and the 70-200 on the other side.
