Hi All,

Im looking for a small bag just to carry my 5dmkiii with 35mm lens around for a city break. Would the Canon 100eg suffice?

I use a Crumpler elastic lady 10' Bought it for the iPad and bits but now it's more used for a camera and second lens. Also have some room for a cloth/blower and some small other stuff.

The last time I went out for a day in the city (London) I took my 5D3 and 50/1.4 dangling from the end of a Black Rapid strap. I considered a bag, but couldn't really see the point/need. That solution was perfectly fine for the 1 mile walk to and from the station and for another 4 miles or so wandering around London. If it had rained then I would have acquired a plastic carrier bag to keep the rain off the gear.

If I had really wanted a bag then my "small" solution is a Lowepro Passport Sling (Mk I version). I used that last weekend for 5D3 plus attached 50/1.4, a loose 200/2.8 inside the bag and a bottle of water in the outside pouch. Sizing was perfect without expanding the bag.

I purchased a similar one for my 6D from this eBay seller. I really like mine. This is a US eBay listing but he may have the same item listed on the UK eBay since the seller is from China.

Uh.... never mind. Here's the same listing with UK amount from the same seller: http://www.ebay.co.uk …_Bags&hash=item​27c9b5624d (external link)

Just realized the bag may be too long for the 35mm lens. It all depends on which 35mm lens.

Would you consider a top loader?

Billingham Hadley Small fits my 5D3 and 85L attached. Same with my Billingham 'Leica Combination' bag as well!

Matt

I have the Canon 100EG
A very Nice, well padded , very well built little bag - and works, fine with a 5D3 and a 40mm pancake lens (on it) . Plus a spare battery and a few cards in the front pouch!

It's got no room for anything else, but is well padded and ideal for a walkabout.

It has some weird sling system, never used it, but could be useful if you are very active.

I just wanted something robust, very minimal, well padded, and that didn't spill its guts everywhere when you opened it.

Note I think I HAD to remove all the internal dividers to get the 5D3 in.
It was good value on Amazon.

My favorite bag for walkaround is the Billingham Hadley Digital.

I recently picked up a Billingham Hadley Large and am seriously considering buying the Hadley Small as well to carry around a 5D3 with 24-105 or 24-70 attached along with my 580 EX-II flash. The quality and looks on these Billingham bags are amazing!

I always like to carry my flash (just in case) so the Hadley Digital would be too small for my use, but sounds like a perfect fit for you. Yes they are EXPENSIVE, but so well worth it IMO! Good luck finding your bag.


Body: 5D MKIII Gripped, 7D MKII
Lens: EF 85mm f1.2L II - EF 50mm f1.2L - EF 16-35mm f2.8L II - EF 17-40mm f4L - EF 24-70mm f2.8L - EF 24-105mm f4L- EF 70-200mm f2.8L IS - EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L IS II - EF 15mm f2.8 fisheye - EF 1.4x II

In the Hadley Digital, I typically carry the 5Diii with 24-105 (hood reversed) plus the 50 f/1.4. The 580 EX won't fit where the 50mm does. I have an AVEA 03 on it, but frankly haven't found that very usefull. Too small. But the AVEA 05 might be better, and could possibly hold the flash. I think I'll try one of those.
