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.

    I use it for the Canon 5D with 24-105 f/4.0 lens. It provides great protection for the camera and there is space for extra battery, filters and memory cards. Comfortable bag provides easy access to camera.

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

    Holds my Canon 5dIII and a short zoom (17-40mm) OK but ideally should be a bit deeper. I gather there is now a Mark 2 version of this Toploader model that should be investigated if you have a bigger lens. As with all Lowepro gear it is very well constructed.

    Perfect Fit for 7D & EF-S 18-200

    By Bob

    from NC

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

    Perfect fit for 7D with quick disconnect & EF-S 18-200 with lens hood mounted backwards. Inner Velcro strip does catch edge of hood when removing, found very acceptable work around by adding vertical strip of tape across Velcro all the way to bottom of bag allowing hood to ride smoothly across edge of Velcro strip. Front pouch has plenty of room for extra batteries and CF Card case or filter. Inside pouch on inner side of top has plenty of room for individual CF cards or lens wipes, but not much more. Shoulder strap comfortable across chest, or off shoulder, but off shoulder does not work well for me since all shoulder straps slip off too easily causing me to feel like whatever I'm carrying will be dropped. Zippers were a little stiff when first used, but after a few times back and forth, they feel very secure. This bag at its current price is a great deal! I'm very happy with this bag! I'm giving this bag a 4 stars because of the Velcro issue, otherwise it would be a 5 star rating.

        I have owned the 55AW version of this bag for a couple of years, for use with a Canon 60D and Canon 100-400 mm zoom (yes, it fits), and I like it a lot. The 50 AW I purchased for use with the camera and Canon 18-200 mm zoom, which fits nicely. I find this a great way to carry the camera while walking or hiking.

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

          I bought this bag for my 365 project because the description assured me that it would hold my camera and a 17-55mm f/2.8 lens. The description was correct it does hold my camera and the lens, just barely. The only problem I had was the lens shade would catch on the velcro tape inside the bag about 2/3rds of the way down. I simply turned the bag inside out and used a seam ripper to remove the velcro tape.

              I bought this bag to carry my Lumix FZ200. It really works well. I haven't had to use the rain cover, but it's good to know it's there. The versatile carry modes was a big selling point for me, and this bag is very well built.

              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.

                    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.

                      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.

                          Just about right for Canon 70D with Sigma 17-50mm.
                          Pocket is good for charger, extra battery and card reader.
                          Rain cover gives good protection against snow and rain.
                          Overall great product.
