I have two rather large Canon Bags that hold a lot of gear. I am a female looking for a nice shoulder bag that would carry my 5D II with 24-105 lens attached and perhaps another lens and flash. Something I could take to events without having a large bag carrying around. I have been looking for the past couple of months and I think the closest thing I see to what I am looking for is the Crumpler 5 Million. Is there anything else I should consider?

Thanks for any advice -

If you want something stylish, look at these:

If you just want something casual like the crumpler, the 5MDH should be perfectly fine with a 5D w/ 1 extra lens and flash. To put it into perspective, this is what I fit in my 6MDH:
450D/20D w/ 10-22 attached, 70-200 f4 w/hood reversed, 430EX II, sigma 30 1.4.

If you plan to put your 70-200 in there along with the 5D, it might get a bit tight though.

Take a good look at the new Lowepro Pro Messenger bags. Three sizes (the 180 will even hold a 70-200 attached to the body).

These aren't cheap but very well made and include an All Weather rain cover.

I use a Jack Wolfskin Jungle 15 with an adjustable liner from EBay for a 1ds mk2 with 24-105L, 70-200 f4L, Speedlight 220 and 1.4x extender.

For something that doesn't look like a camera bag.

The Think Tank Retro 10 is a great size for a body, 2 lenses, and a flash. It'll still have room for accessories in the front pocket but the pocket collapses down nicely when empty.

You might also want to look at the LowePro Stealth Reporters. They look more like a camera bag but the zipper on top can make it easy to quickly pull the camera out without opening entire bag.

I recently took this one on a trip to Paris. I had it full so it got a little heavy by the end of the day, but it is my goto bag by far now. I love it! It's so nice to be able to grab a camera on the fly without taking your backback off. Holds a lot of stuff too (laptop and iPad), great for a carry on.

By the way, I have nothing to do with them even though this is my first post.

Thank you all for so many great suggestions. Lots to look at and consider, which is great. I was just sort of lost when trying to look, there were so many and it seemed overwhelming.

Love the looks of some of these - exactly what I was looking for.

Now to shop :D

If you have a grip on the body, the Domke F3x in sand, navy or black (B&H has a special edition version in grey on clearance, too; mine arrives Tuesday). Without a grip, the F3x or F-803. Always, regardless of the shoulder bag, get the Domke Post Office Pad Buford linkes to.
