Hi - been doing a lot of thread reading and can't find exactly what I'm looking for - so, suggestions please.
I want a walk-around day bag, probably similar to a "Messenger" bag for a body (7D or 40D) with one attached lens (EF 24-105) but here is the complication. I would like to put the camera & lens in the bag with the right side up instead of the LCD screen up - I guess this would be horizontal but on the side.
I just want to reach into the bag and grab the right side (normal grip side) and pull the camera + lens up and out with my right hand. I know this is not normally what I have seen - most have the lens pointing straight down with the LCD on top and use both hands to lift the body up and out.
So far I haven't seen any pictures of a camera orientated this way in either the Crumpler or Lowepro photos - actually, they seem to show the LCD down in the bottom or top with the lens pointing up or down.
Since this is the "walk around" bag, I don't need the extra space for multiple lenses where you would normally put the attached lens into an empty tube/slot, pull out the other lens, etc.
