_
"This F-5XB is a great smaller size bag when you only need a body and extra lens."

"I ultimately settled on this model, and here's what I can cram in here if I'm really trying (I don't have quite this much in there for the video):- E-P2 body with one of the lenses below mounted- Olympus 17mm f 2.8- Olympus 14-42mm- Panasonic 45-200mm- Panasonic 20mm f 1.7- Olympus 50mm f 2 Macro with Micro 4 3 adapter mounted- Olympus FL-14 flash- Olympus VF1 optical viewfinder- Olympus VF2 electronic viewfinder- Spare battery memory cards filters etc in the front pocketIn one completely absurd configuration, I've successfully fit my E-P2 mounted to the Olympus Zuiko 50-200mm f 2.8-3.5 Digital ED SWD Lens in this bag."

"I needed a bag that can hold my Df and a few MFNG primes; primarily 24 8mm, NOCT Nikkor and 85mm f1.8 K. This bag when it was delivered seemed rather narrow and after stretching it out a bit, I am able to fit my Nikon Df and said primes along with 2 spare batteries, lens hood for my 24 8mm, a couple 52mm filters and a RRS mini tripod."
