Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) This is what I would consider a day bag, not a bag to carry all of your camera equipment (we have a Kata KT DR-467 that we use to carry all of our equipment and a laptop). But this bag was exactly what I was looking for. It's small, light weight, comfortable to carry, and there's room for all kinds of little stuff (memory cards, band-aids, mints, a cell phone) in the front zipper pocket.
Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) I bought this pack specifically for the Panasonic G1 and it works great for that purpose. It fits the camera with the kit lens and the 45-200mm lens with room to spare. It also has lots of other little pockets for stashing all of the other little things a casual photographer needs.
Summary: Purchased this for a Canon S5IS so I don't need the room for additional lenses, etc. I use the space for spare batteries, wallet, phone - this bag is small - tight fit for Canon 30D but it worked fine; just don't plan to carry a lot of additional equip. Well made, sling strap wide, padded and comfortable. I live in So Florida where it is humid and in the 90's a lot, bag is small enough to be comfortable - not too hot.
Summary: I have a Canon EOS XSi with a Tamron 28-200 zoom lens plus two additional Canon lenses. Before getting this bag I considered the Lowe Pro Sling Pack (too big for my need) and the LowePro Inverse 100 AW (too big), and the LowePro OffTrail 1 (didn't need the extra lens storage). This bag is the perfect size for the XSi with the 28-200 or smaller lens attached. A longer lens (ie. 70-200, 100-200, etc) will not fit well.
Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) I just received this bag today and loving it already. It's so comfortable on my back and shoulder. I've owned 2 other bags in the past. My first one was a cheap and boxy Caselogic SLRC-1. I rarely used this bag but for a short day trip. My other bag was the Lowepro Fastpack 200 (I used this bag for my 1 month trip in Peru) which I found it to be unnecessary large and extremely uncomfortable to carry.
Summary: This bag does what I want: it keeps my camera easily accessible and doesn't add extra bulk/weight. It is just big enough for my D90 with 18-200mm lens, although the hood doesn't really fit when attached to the lens. A D300 won't fit. One thing to note about this bag is that it's asymmetric and is clearly meant to be worn on your right side. You can wear it as a messenger bag on your left, but it won't feel quite right.
The best bag for a Nikon D90 + kit lens + 50mm lens & a bit more!

Summary: I tried on several bags and this one was the winner because: - of its size (wanted very compact so I'd be most likely to take it with me more than not) but big enough to hold my camera w/ 18-105mm lens attached as well as camera strap, plus a 50mm lens plus a hood and filter and cleaning accessories plus SD card plus some i.d./money/keys.
Summary: the operative part of the product description is "small film or DSLR". As long as you keep that in mind and are using a small camera. I purchased this bag for my wife for her Canon Rebel XT, a 430X Flash, an additional lens and accesrroires. The pocket on the front is too tight to fit much more than a couple of filters and memory cards; you can hang up on fitting in a extra battery, charger, etc.
Summary: I agree with most of the other reviews. The Tamrac 5766 Sling Pack is perfect for my Nikon D40 plus one lens. The front pocket is slim, but fits a passport, money, and lipstick, which was important for me as I want to use this bag for travel instead of a typical camera bag or shoving my camera into a backpack. Great value for money.
Summary: Tamrac 5766 Velocity 6x Compact Sling Pack (Black) this is a great bag for smaller slr's,the 6x worked great for my nikon d80 but is to small for my d300, well built bag and easy to use,i upgradey to a 8x for my d300 and works great
