Hello All,
I would like to get a bag/holster that attaches to a belt that is as compact as possible to carry my 40D w/ 40mm.

I recently got the 40mm and is a cracker as a carry-about, but would like an easy access solution that is unobtrusive. Are there bags designed to carry the camera only? Seems the 40mm would fit in something like this.

Any thoughts?

I have a thinktank digital holster that fits it well.

I would think something like this would work even better.

Thanks for the ideas, but they are both too bulky for what I was thinking. I have similar bags to carry different gear, but what I am looking for now is a lean, just big enough option for 40d/40mm with no other lenses or accessories in tow.

Why not just have it out? Get a decent strap and just carry it out and about.

Good question. I have a handstrap I use which I love.

However, having a two year old makes it a necessity to have two hands free at times. Personally, I hate neck straps, especially when it swings around and swacks your kid when you go to pick him up ;)

Exactly. A sling strap that lets you pick up your kid and still have the camera at-the-ready.

Looks like a good solution, I am going to research this one a bit.
Meanwhile, if any other thoughts out there, I would appreciate it.
Thanks

I have one of these and it's easy to carry around. When I don't want to carry all my gear I just stuff the 10D with the 35-80 lens. So I'm sure the 40D/40mm would fit even better.

It's great quality for being vivitar and I got it in a kit for $5 shipped on ebay from a seller who was clearing out inventory :)

The Crumpler Pleasure Dome(M) (external link) should fit your needs, you can even remove the shoulder strap and attach it to your belt.

OK, was in Wal*art yesterday and ran into this case for $20 so thought would give it a shot.

http://www.caselogic.c​om …240089&producti​d=10205328 (external link)

Comfortably fits 40/40 grip-side up with hand-strap attached. I assume 7d or 5d would squeeze in as well. However, if want to use larger lens, forget about it. 40d is too bulky to fit lens-side down. If you have a rebel, though, this would be a more versatile case.

Not a perfect solution but workable for what I wanted. Still want to look further at the Cinch, but budget is no bueno until later this year.
