A Little Snug,
This review is from: Case Logic SHC-101-BK DSLR Day Holster, Small, Black (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
If I purchased this specifically for my camera and lens, I would be a little disappointed and would probably award it 4 stars because it is a generic fit (but good enough) as opposed to a perfect fit. There are no flaws in the material or workmanship and it was designed for a generic size of body and lens. What you need to know is what kind of camera I used with this baby. Read on.
I have more cases than I care to admit. It was a trial and error process. I now use only three of them. This is one of those three. The first one is a backpack style case. I use it when I want to carry just about all of my gear. The backpack also has a special pocket for a thin laptop or in my case, an iPad. I go fully equipped only when I am not certain what I want to shoot or might come across. I'm fully prepared with that thing.
When I know what lens I want to shoot with and I need room for a few other things, I carry a smaller case that looks like it was made to hold fat binoculars. Finally, when I just want go with the bare minimum, I use this one. When you go bare minimum, you just need something to act as a cover so you don't scratch your camera up. This case will also protect it from minor bumps.
All three of my favorite cases happen to be Case Logic. I own many other brands, but I use the Case Logics most often.
I shoot with a Nikon D7000. This case fits my camera with Nikon's 18-200mm VR lens very snugly. It doesn't slip right it. It takes just a little effort, but I don't have to force it. Of course with smaller lenses, it slips right in.
The only pocket it has is a small pocket to hold the lens cap when you are using the camera. That's actually a nice feature. Many shooters like myself don't like lens cap lanyards.

Is the length the limiting factor? I have a D7000 and the 18-300mm, which measures in just under 8" long. This bag is supposed to handle up to 7.5", but the 18-200 is almost a full inch shorter than the 18-300, so I'm worried it won't fit. Otherwise this seems like the perfect bag for my needs. Would sewing in a bit more velcro on either side give it a bit more room? Thanks!

I'm certain that the D7000 with a lens longer than an 18-200 will not fit.
