great everyday and walk around bag.,
This review is from: Lowepro Event Messenger 150 DSLR Camera Shoulder Bag (Electronics)
This bag is perfect for me as an everyday bag. A little about me. I am a serious amateur. I like to mostly travel light and combine photography with other activities -walking the dog, family outings, kids sports, etc.I like this bag because it is comfortable, carries the gear I need, has easy access to my gear. And does not look like a camera bag.
I can comfortably carry my Sony a77, 3 prime lenses - Sony 35mm f1.8, 50mm f1.4, 85mm f2.8, and a 16-50mm f2.8 or 75-300 f4.5-5.6. With the 3 prime lenses and 1 zoom, I can have any of the lenses mounted on the camera stored in center section. If I carry all five lenses, I need to have one of the zooms mounted on the camera to pack everything into the case. Also, i can easily carry two zooms and a prime with any lens camera combo fitting into the center compartment and easy access to the other two lenses.
Two buckle/Velcro closure system works very. I leave the buckle undone and use the Velcro when I want to quickly access other gear. The buckle takes a little effort to get to and to release, but I see as an advantage, as it should keep my gear somewhat secure.
More than enough room in the accessories pocket for usual memory cards, lens cleaner, remote shutter, 2 extra batteries.
There is a slot for a tablet and my nexus 7 tablet fits with case fits along with all of the gear. I haven't carried my tablet in my photo walks but should work well.
Summary - this is a great everyday walk around bag that carries a lot of stuff.
