    Holds my 5D Mark II with 50mm 1.2 L lens attached perfectly. This is the most compact & protective case I can get for that combination. I love this bag when I want to go out extremly light, and know I wont need another lens, or want another lens for the rest of the day. Has and AW cover in case of emerggency, so it gives me piece of mind. You can definitley hold a lens slightly longer aswell, seems like something up to even a inch longer could fit without a problem. And since my 5D mark II fits, a 50D or rebel wouldnt be a problem either.

    I really like the way Lowepro makes their bags - sturdy, practical, and attractive-looking. This bag definitely is a good bag, however, I am slightly dissapointed with the memory card pocket and zipper inside the case (on the underside of the top closing flap. My DSLR is long and the LCD screen rubs against the zipper and I worry that it will scratch it. I currently drape a lens cleaning cloth over the top of the camera to prevent that from happening. Other than that, it's a good case.

        Comments about Lowepro Toploader Zoom 45 AW Bag (Black):

        This is a great simplistic bag. The top has easy access without taking the bag off and the rain fly is easy to use although I cannot comment on the waterproofness yet.

        I have a D7100 with a 18-140mm lens and it fits like a glove with a thick padded strap wrapped around the lens. It would not fit a longer lens or a battery grip, but there would be space for a lens hood or a wider lens. It has a front pockets for extra batteries and a cliff bar, and a zippered space for memory cards inside.

        The bag is not as rigid as I would like, but it is by no means flimsy. Also, the strap it comes with is pretty terrible, I think it's assumed you will replace it.

          Have had lots of Lowepro bags…they are always made well and are very durable. All my school cameras for my classroom are kept in Lowepro bags. This one has a weather protector bag that pulls out of the back of the bag…great little accessory!!

          The lowepro tlz bag does exactly what it advertises. It has enough space for the camera, extra memory cards and a few misc other things. The sides are thick so it actually protects the camera. Moreover, the rain bag is a great feature!

          I have a large backpack style bag that holds most my gear but had really been needing a smaller bag just to hold my camera for small outings with my family. This bag works perfect! Just the right size for your bare necessities. Great quality as always with Lowepro

              Bought this to fit my carry-about camera: Nikon D800 with 50mm. Turns out to be an extremely tight fit, which is fine with me. I wanted the bag to be as small as possible and still fit the camera.

              These bags are built extremely well too. This is my third -- I also have two larger ones for other camera/lens combos.

                    I received this bag with my Nikon D7000 Kit as a gift and it fits my Nikon D7000 and the 18-105 lens just enough. Using any lens bigger than that will not fit. There is just the right amount of pocket space for a quick camera outing. If you need to bring multiple batteries, filter, etc. there is simply no room unless you use a smaller lens. My favorite feature is the attached rain guard that is tucked inside the bag that you can unfold and wrap around it.

                      I just started using this bag a few times for my Sony super-zoom "bridge" camera. My DSLR also fits inside but with a wide angle not a big zoom lense. It is big for my bridge camera, but then there is enough room to zip the camera strap inside too, which is nice. The pocket on the front holds a polarizer, the connector to my tripod, and extra memory cards. Inside I have my power cord for charging the battery. It is a minimal bag that fits my needs.

                            This bag is well padded and I like that it's a top loader, meaning you face the lens downwards and the camera is narrower at the bottom as you don't need such a wide back when packing the camera is this way. I do miss having a larger bag which would also accommodate a 2nd lens.

                              This is a great small bag for your dslr and a few things. What is in my bag you ask Well it fits my D5100 with the 55-200mm lens with nikon strap on camera in main compartment. and in the little pocket on the front i have an extra battery,shutter cable, also where i put my lens cap and still have a liitle room if you wanted to put a credit card or some cash. I dont have much gear so this works great for me i grab my bag will sometimes put my little 18-55mm in my pocket and grab my tripod if need be. A great well built little bag for a little price.

                                The bag came in a bundle with my camera, and I was not expecting much but I am quite happy with it so far. It is compact yet I can carry my Nikon D5100 with kit lens+extra battery, which is all I need really.
                                Only thing I don't like is the zippers cannot be locked when you zip it closed, I use the nikon harness to carry it instead of the harness that came with it and this annoys me a bit.

                                    This came as part of the Nikon D7000 kit. Much too small. It can hold just the camera alone, but nothing else. It would be nice for a small point & shoot. I gave it 3 stars because the quality is excellent. For my camera and extra lenses, Ipad, and camera manual, I had to buy a Tamarac Aria 6. Lots of pockets for filters, extra batteries, etc.

                                    This bag came with my camera purchase (Nikon D3200). Since I take this camera everywhere, I needed to protect it. This bag does not only make it easier to carry it, it also offers additional room to take the battery charger, an extra memory card, and an extra battery. It further has an in-built raincoat, which I think is smart. Overall worth to purchase. HOWEVER, once you replace the standard lense with a larger one (like a 24-105), the bag will be too small!
