So, Im thinking of getting another camera bag to carry the soon to be here Z6. Probably will get the 35 S line lens. And maybe another lens could be an F mount, but not real big, 105 maybe? This will be an everyday bag. A messenger or sling. Needs to hold work computer and water bottle. Batteries and cards. Maybe a small lunch.

Okay spend away!

PS: has to fit in my little sports car.

Thanks, Dennis.

Look at ThinkTank. I think they make the best bags.

I have looked at the think tank retrospective 7 V2; https://www.thinktan...spective-7-v2-0.

 

My main goal is to carry the Z6 all the time. I spend a lot of time driving, and there have been some very nice sun set/rise and some landscapes while driving to work. So, it will need to carry my work laptop (15"), Z6, S line lens or two. FTZ and some sort of F mount lens. Nothing large. Might take the 16-35/F4. The 24-70/f4 1.8 S lens is Cindy's. I'm thinking as a kit lens the S line 35/1.8 S line. I don't want the 50 s line as I have a few in the F mount.

 

 

What you all think? I have time, the Z6 isn't going to be in my hands until the end of Nov.


Thanks, Dennis.

I've heard very good things about Think Tank.  Unfortunately, that also comes with a higher price tag.  :(

I use a Lowepro Slingshot Dennis. It’s real comfy on your back, and when you swing it around for access to your gear it provides a nice place to steady your elbows when you take a pic. Jeff

It's less than 7 bucks but it'll prevent you from leaving your camera in a hotel room.  ;)

I have used Domke bags forever. I am on my second F2. They are waterproof, have just enough room for what you want. F1x is too big.
