Think Tank just came out with a new line of bags aimed at milcs. They call them Mirrorless Movers, and are value priced at $35 - $70, depending on size.

Look very interesting - who's gonna be the first to try ... :biggrin:

Those look very interesting. I just started carrying an X100s, and could use a small bag. Can't go wrong with Think Tank. Thanks for the heads up.

First, let me say that I own a ton of TT gear - to my mind, TT is simply the best.

That said, when I carry my NEX -7, 2 add'l lenses and the mini flash, I find that any of my old fanny packs work great. Not sure the TT model has anything to make me want to buy one and use it instead of the fanny pack. If I did not already have several fanny packs available, I might choose the TT because of the near legendary quality of TT products, but otherwise, I don't see anything special here.

I'm glad that the bag manufacturers are starting to design bags around smaller mirrorless cameras. I'd have to see these bags in person or buy them from a place to test out that accepts returns. One issue I've run into with all of them is that they tend to be much taller than necessary, but not necessarily deep enough to accomodate the height of the bodies when placed sideways in the bag with the lens mounted.

My ideal shooting bag would hold 2 mirrorless bodies with lenses mounted and 2 additional lenses in their own slots, or repurposed to carry 1 body/lens combo with 3-4 additional lenses. Since the lenses and bodies are small, it makes for an unusual shape. The bag would be as tall as it is deep, but much wider. I prefer bags with minimal padding that conform to the body. I'd also prefer a top flap that opened away from the body for easier lens access.

The closest bag I've seen to this layout is the Timbuk2 Informant. Only issue with their bags, like Crumpler, TT, etc is that it's overly padded and pretty rigid.
