Yep. It's an ideal bag for a body and a couple of lenses + flash.

Great review! I can get a 70-200 f2.8 IS L to fit easily it gives about 2cm of room above it in the bag but no hood, i use a generic metal hood which i prefer anyway. Ill take a photo with it in to post up here if you want?

One of the end pockets has a 580EX in it. The other bag's an F-2 with 20D and 70-200 2.8 IS in it(which fits just as well in the F3x as the 100-400 combo).

Absolutely great review. Kinda wish I'd seen this prior to my recent Crumpler 6mdh purchase....but nothing says I can't get this, too! I wish there were more reviews like this one.

Great review. I have had this bag (in olive green) for several months. I love it. It looks small and, as you have shown, carries a ton of equipment. It is the clown car of camera bags!

The F-3x really does hold an amazing amount of stuff for such a small bag. I can put so much into mine that I don't want to carry it for a long day out on the streets. It is great though as it is easy to get things in and out of if I pack it less than full to the seams.

I have left it at home for my current trip and have been using an F-5XC (a new bag I wanted to break in) which is a real nice alternative/companion bag that is a bit slimmer but would not be so good for a series 1 body or a gripped 5D (I don't know about the other bodies). It has a small amount of padding which is concern to some but I tend to not smash my bag around too much anyhow. The F3 is great to carry just a wee bit more than the 5XC

Thanks all - hope this helps people choose the bag that suits their needs. I can't recommend Domkes enough for what they are.

I've come to realise that there is no perfect one-bag solution; you can't have something for every situation in one bag. I have a Boda bag for formal stuff and for shooting out of when all I need is a lens bag for all day, I have this bag for a drag-around-everywhere, gig and travel bag and a backpack for when I'm riding or hiking places. I'm now looking for a F1 or similar to act as a "take everything to a job" bag as I'm sick of carting around several smaller bags of camera gear...

What color do you want? Except for my F-1x and one of the F-2s, mine are all in Sand.
