I ordered this bag to accommodate a minimal kit. I'm currently using it for my
Canon 60D (larger than the Canon Rebel series)
Canon 85mm f/1.8 with lens hood reversed
Canon 60mm macro (which will eventually be substituted out for the EF 35mm f/2 IS USM as it's the same size)
There's just barely enough room for the 40mm STM. And when I say BARELY, I mean it. It's packed TIGHT. The EF 50mm f/1.8 is a little bigger than the 40mm STM and will NOT fit in it's place.
This is exactly what I was looking for. I didn't want a bag with a billion and one pockets so I could carry everything I might possibly need over the next 14 years. I wanted something that would carry my camera and two prime lenses so that I could tackle most photographic opportunities and this is FLAWLESS for that application.
The bag appears very well made and what I like most about it is that it doesn't look like a typical camera bag.
Other great features:
Like most camera bags, there are several removable/adjustable dividers.
The top! Sounds weird but what's great about it is that the top can secure via a single buckle or you can reveal two velcro strips and use those instead - or use the velcro and the buckle together.
Additionally, there are some little flaps that fold in for a little extra padding and protection.
Side and front pockets - going with the minimal theme, these pockets aren't intrusive and take up very little room when not in use.
If you're looking for something to carry a couple of small-ish lenses and your camera - this is your bag!
I added a few images in the hopes that it's helpful. EDIT: for some reason the pictures never showed up despite the upload working. Sorry.

Excellent bag for micro-four-thirds cameras. As small as the bag is it will hold an entire micro-four-thirds system. Three vertical dividers, the body fits on top with the attached lens in the center section. Side sections can then hold additional lenses. Can use as a three zoom set-up or a huge collection of primes. For primes it works best to remove the horizontal dividers and put the primes in small pouches. Holds a lot more this way. There are many possible configurations. For example I can fit my E-M5, Rokinon 7.5, Olympus 12/2, Panasonic 25/1.4, Olympus 45/1.8 and Olympus 75/1.8 with ease.

I'm using bag for a Sony NEX 5R with three lenses (35mm, 18-55mm, and 55-200mm). It fits everything well with a few additional accessories in the front pocket (batteries, SD Cards, flash, etc.) There is probably even room for another small lens. I wanted something as compact as possible and still functional.I like the large top opening and ability to clip the top down for security or Velcro it for quick access. After a lot of searching, I settled on the Event Messenger 100, and I am glad I did.

This small bag fits my Olympus OM-D (with a zoom lens attached) plus two extra zoom lenses.
This bag comes with the typical vertical dividers which split the space into three compartments.
The camera fits face down with the attached lens taking up the middle compartment.
The extra lenses (or accessories) go on the side compartments.
But one cool feature is that it also has horizontal dividers so you can stack two items in the side compartments.
(like a small zoom and a pancake lens or the charger and the clip-on flash).
It also has a front pocket to store memory cards, batteries, and miscellaneous stuff.
There's also a slim pocket in the back that fits a Kindle perfectly.
The material is sturdy but pliable. The case is well padded but not bulky.

CONS: There's just one color.

I bought this for an EOS-M kit consisting of: camera, 22 mm and 18-55 mm lenses, filters, two spare batteries with charger, small flash, and an SD card case. It all fits with not much room left over. Bag quality looks good, as I would expect with Lowepro.

I read all the reviews about this bag and bought it trusting what I read. I honestly do not know how some of these people packed so much into this bag without busting the stitching. The bag is well made, like all Lowepro stuff, but honestly, I had to take out all the dividers but one just to squeeze my Olympic EM-10 with the 1442 kit lens, wireless trigger and a small, 40-100mm into it. The front pouch took a battery charger, two batteries and some cards.That's it. Maybe I should have bought the next size up. Second thoughts, I'll send this back.

This is a great looking bag, and highly functional. I bought it for my daughter, who didn't want it to look like she was carrying a more traditional bag. I would buy it again.

In the main compartment, I can fit Olympus OM-D E-M1 with 12-40/2.8 zoom and lens hood, plus a medium size spare lens and a few small accessories, as well as the camera strap. I don't think that this case could accept two spare lenses, unless they were very small. Also, a larger spare lens (such as Olympus 75-300mm II f/4.8-6.7 zoom) is a bit too tall to fit comfortably next to the camera, so the cover doesn't close quite right.

If the interior were an inch higher and wider, it would fit this camera+zoom plus two more lenses. For that, one might want to look at LowePro Nova 170 AW, or even larger LowePro Event Messenger 150.

Additional zippered pocket can hold additional items, such as a spare battery, memory cards, etc. Finally, there are a few open pockets which could be useful at times. Strap hardware is plastic but seems sturdy enough, and the strap is wide enough to be reasonably comfortable. Good quality case materials and construction. The case should resist a few rain drops, but I don't think it would be rain proof in a downpour. While I don't know about its durability yet, this case should serve very nicely.

Typical first class product from Lowepro, no complaints on quality, design or construction.

I bought this for my NEX 6 with 18-50 lens, plus the Sony 55-210 lens, plus a compact Sony flash. The camera/lens, tele-lens, and flash all fit nicely, albeit tightly, with a little extra space for filters, remote control, cleaning gear, owners manual,gray card etc.

Everything is a tight fit, but it's a contact package for carrying all my gear (save a tripod). If I had one wish, it would be for a couple extra straps on the back to carry a tripod.

I just got a lumix g6 and this case works very well for it. I can fit 3 lenses and the camera snugly in the case & it is incredibly portable. I also like that the latch has the option to be shut with velcro or to be clipped in place. (or both) This means I can easily get at what's inside and also have the option to know it's shut very securely. I also really like the handle on the back. it's balanced well so i can pick up the bag and run out the door to go shoot some photos
