Holds my 5D Mark II with either my 16-35mm f/2.8 L, 24-70mm f/2.8 L or also my 100mm f/2.8 IS L lens attached perfectly. This is the most compact & protective case I can get for any of those combinations. 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. It also has a AW cover in case of an emergency, so it gives me piece of mind. The 24-70 is just slightly the longest of the 3 lens mentioned, and nothing longer will fit in this bag with this size body, it snug with the 24-70. And since my 5D mark II fits, a 7D, 50D or rebel wouldnt be a problem either.

I got this as an add-on item with my recent camera purchase. At first I wasn't planning on keeping it but the after taking a look at it I realized I had a use for it. It's the perfect size to fit a Nikon F100 with grip and a 50/1.8D with hood. I have also attached a Lowepro lens case to one side and keep a 70-300 zoom in it. I did also swap out the shoulder strap for one from another Lowepro bag that has a grippy shoulder pad on it. My only complaint is that I wish it had attachment loops on both sides so I could carry my SB-600 with it as well.

Comments about Lowepro Toploader Zoom 50 AW Bag (Black):

Useful for basic shoots. Has just enough room for your camera with lens attached. Side pocket has just enough space for maybe a charger or card reader but nothing else. Still, this works if you know exactly the lens you want and plan to return to your home base for post.

    It fits my camera which is Nikon D5300 with 18-140mm Lens. Also it has a rain-cover to protect case from rain. There is a separative flat in bag so that you can carry your camera and lens attached or not.

                    This is a perfect bag if you are looking for a bag that can fit little above medium sized DSLR with medium telephoto lens ( example, Nikon D7100 with Nikon 18-140 mm lens or Canon 70D with 18-135 mm lens or a similar sized ones)and room for spare battery, memory , lens cloth/tissue ,remote and other small accessories. I visited bhphoto store at New York city ( I live in New jersey)to check the fit for my camera and tried various bag models from lowepro, tamrac, caselogic , manfratto etc. This lowepro zoom 50 AW found to be perfect fit for my Nikon D7100 with 18-140mm lens with easy access, excellent protection, room for small accessories and right size & weight. I highly recommend this bag if your needs are similar to as mentioned in this review.

                      I did not want to take my big camera bag on a trip ,I was looking for a smaller size and this bag fit the bill. I went to a local camera store to look at it first, then I ordered it from B & H. It is just a perfect size to put into my backpack.

                      Ever since my partner gave me the Computrekker AW I have been sold on Lowepro stuff. It ia all well designed and thought out, and the quality is top drawer all the way.

                      I use the toploader as a daily carry around for my camera, and to keep extra memory cards and filters. I can even stick an extra lens in it for quick hikes away from the main kit bag.

                        Works great for my Nikon Df, also great (a little roomy, though) for my Nikon D40X. There is enough room for a camera with a long lens, and the top is wide enough to be able to grab a camera out quickly without anything getting stuck or tangled. The bag stays upright even with a camera that is weighted towards the top of the bag. Overall, the bag wears comfortably and I can take a camera out safely and smoothly.

                          Pocket is good for charger, extra battery and card reader.
                          Rain cover gives good protection against snow and rain.

                            I use this to carry my Canon with a 28-135mm zoom lens. The camera fits comfortably in the bag with it's strap. There's plentty of room in the front pocket for all the miscellaneous stuff (spare battery, charger, remote, lens cover, filter) and the slot in the top for a spare memory card is really nice.

                                  The camera bag is of good quality. I bought it for a small bag for my D800E. The bag is too small. I gave it to my daughter whom I give all my older photography equipment too. She likes it and uses it with her DX cameras.

                                    When I just want to take the Nikon 7100 and not all the lenses and flask equipment. Case my be secure to wast belt but I am more comfortable using neck strap. Easy to remove camera and start shooting immediately. Also, provide good dust protection he hen camera not in use.

                                        I purchased this bag for a lightweight compact bag for my Nikon D800 with 24-70mm. We I travel I have a roller Lowepro bag for all of my equipment. Often I need a lightweight bag that I simply just carry camera a lens. This one compresses and fits in my checked luggage. I have a number Lowepro bags. One had a zipper fail and quickly replaced by Lowepro with no questions asked.

                                          The Lowepro toploader zoom 50aw offers quite a bit of space and shock resistance for your gears. You can also freely adjust the straps to carry it accordingly to your comfort. The only problem about it is the size, where I originally bought it for a smaller sized DSLR and a relatively mid/small sized zoom. However, when I switched to a larger body, nikon d800, it's hard to access the camera grip and there is nearly no enough space for a neck strap if you have one attached. I'm writing this review roughly 6 months after purchase and it has offered nothing but good quality and satisfaction for its price.

                                            A decent toploader bag considering the cost. The fabric material looks to be reasonably durable. I consider the plastic strap attachment hardware and rings disappointing, (should be metal). As advertised a D300 with the 17-55/2.8 Nikkor attached is the bag maximum carry, but fits nicely.
