Summary: I'm a dentist and have a Canon rebel xsi I use for intraoral photos. I was looking for a smaller bag that can fit in a narrow space. I can fit my macro lens (100mm), the standard lens the camera comes with, the body, and the macro ring lite flash (MR-14EX) inside the main compartment. The ring part of the flash won't fit unless I tuck it into the front zippered pocket. You could probably fit another smaller lens as well.
Summary: After spending a lot of time on research, on backpacks, bags, cases etc. for a DSLR I bought this bag i.e. Tamrac 3536 Express 6 series. I paid $28 on Amazon through the seller Electronic-expo and that's the cheapest I could find this bag anywhere (I wouldn't buy this bag for $40 though). The reason I bought this bag was for everyday use, like the trip to parks, museums, sightseeing and just to walk around without carrying a backpack or something big.
Summary: I've had this since 2007 and I've been quite pleased. It fits my EOS 500d body and a 18-50mm lens, wallet, cell phone and various trinkets I carry around. I guess I could fit a second zoom lens in there too but not really much more - well maybe a flash but that would make the bag really jam packed. Build quality is good. All in all I recommend this bag if you don't need any more space.
Summary: The Express 6 is a very well-made bag. I don't feel like I have to "baby" the bag, and I can walk through narrow doorways and turnstiles in the subway and not worry when the bag bangs something. This bag is small...it's a perfect fit for my Pentax K-x (the smallest DSLR around) and two lenses, an 18-55mm and a 55-300mm (with either one on the camera.) I can also fit a Totes flat-folding Micro umbrella in the main compartment. That's really all there's room for.
Summary: I'm impressed with the build quality of this bag by Tamrac. Inner parts was well padded. The only thing is this bag was a bit small. I have to remove the inner partitions from 2 to 1 partition (means from 3 spaces to 2 space) to accommodate my my Nikon D90 + 50mm + charger. If you have larger or bigger lenses, i suggest go for bigger versions.
Not quite what I desired, but a great bag nonetheless.

Summary: I recently purchased a Canon XS Rebel. It's my first camera that isn't a point and shoot, and I've been extremely pleased with it. I bought it with the intention of taking an abhorrently large amount of photos during a trip to Europe over the coming months, and I wanted to make sure I had a bag that could fit my camera (with 18-55 kit lens mounted) and my 50mm f/1.4 snugly beside it, along with the necessary items (charger, usb cable, etc.
Camera Bag for the person who wants a little bag to carry a lot of stuff

Summary: When I bought my cannon rebel I purchased a larger bag that was ackward to carry around and didn't hold a lot of "other" stuff I wanted to carry around with my camera. This bag has room for my camera, a telephoto lens, a special place on the side for my phone, my pad & pen fits in the back zip area, wallet goes easily in the front zip area and when you open the bag you have another place for extra sd cards, batteries, even your keys.
Summary: Great looking bag but the inner velcro straps are rather sharp so you have to take care lest it rubs on your equipment. The side pockets are not very useful either, would be better if they were fully enclosed for small items that are often used. Otherwise, it affords good protection for your equipment.
Summary: I just rec'd this bag yesterday. Seems to be well made. I have a Nikon D40 with a 55-200mm Nikon zoom, and you relly need to remove one of the main side dividers to have that lens and camera fit in the bag, with the 18-55mm lens that comes with the camera. If this bag was just an inch or two wider, I would say it's perfect. Stylish and well built for sure. Happy with it.
