Default New bag - Samsung NX bag - cheap!

Well I figured it was time to buy a new bag for the triple zoom kit to fit in as my crumpler 4 million dollar home cannot fit all three lenses at the same time.

After visio diagram based on the specs of my lenses (I kid you not) I determined I would need a bag 10" long by 4" wide and 6.25" tall. I spent some time on bhphoto browsing bags and determined that the ONA Bowery was probably a really good bag, but I didn't have $149 for the canvas version or $249 for the leather one I really wanted... lol... they did have an Olympus messenger bag but it had terrible reviews so I kept looking and I found a bag made by Samsung for their NX series that fit my size specs perfectly.

I looked on ebay and found a seller selling a kit that included this bag and a NX battery and NX charger. The seller wanted $29 or so plus $16 shipping. I contacted the seller and said I wanted just the bag and offered $15 as best offer, he refused, I offered $20 and he accepted. The package arrived and for whatever reason it included all the items. So I went ahead and listed and sold the battery plus charger for $12 plus shipping, which sold the same night, total net cost ended up being $8 plus $16 shipping.

It's pretty basic nylon and the leather is pleather but it's well padded and has moveable dividers like the crumpler and most importantly the three zooms fit along with the adapter, E-M1, extra battery, and the Olympus battery charger.

I'll keep the crumpler for when I'm just taking the 14-54 and 7-14 out and will probably keep an eye out for one of the ONA bags for a decent price but in the meantime this works well for me.

yeah it will definitely get the job done. I also forgot to mention it has a thin pocket on the bag that fits a 10" or smaller tablet which makes it pretty perfect. Now I just have to figure out how to put some loops on the bottom so that I can attach my tripod.

A nice looker and you certainly cannot argue the price of it.
