I have the Lowepro Nova 2 AW. It holds everything I need for My FZ20. And I can put the camera with adapter & hood attached in the bag. Just pull it out, turn it on, and start shooting.

And has room for my Quantaray Q383 Super Flash, 30 minute AA battery cahrger, 2 additional sets (4 per set) of AA batteries for the flash, 2 camera batteries, extra memory cards, cleaning kit, camera battery charger.

And I still have room left to squeez more stuff in if I need to.

Ditto
I took bobc's lead and got the same bag for my FZ20.
I have everything bobc has in his bag in mine plus my tripod.

OK, it's one of those weenie table top flexie leg things but hey, it's in there and it's a tripod.:G

Kidding aside it's a great bag for around $35.

I actually had the Nova 1 AW but it wasn't big enough, so I got the Lowepro Off road, which is a bit bigger, but I got my Raynox 2.2x lens and the TCON-17 and I just got the Raynox close up lens. I honestly haven't tried fitting everything into the bag, but I do love the bag, it has these two side holsters for lenses, I already put my 383 in one of them and the other holster (it's cylindrical) I removed. It has a belt pack as well as a regular strap so you can wear it as a belt. And on the bottom there is an attachment for a tripod, which I haven't tried using yet. How much bigger is the Nova2 from the Nova1? I am going to Hawaii in January and if I can get a smaller bag, I would like to. But the Offroad is excellent!

I've got a LowePro TLZ 2, which is roomy enough for my current stuff. It is great for day treks because it opens toward you and lets you get into it quickly. I saw a LowePro Nova 2 AW at Circuit City today. It looked pretty nice, too, but was a more traditional bag and heavier.
