Mountainsmith makes "cubes," padding that can fit into other bags. My EOS-M kit travels in the interior cube from a Mountainsmith Hobo bag that I've pulled out and placed into a North Face Sport Hiker. The full size cube will easily hold what you listed. I have one and use it when I'm traveling light, loaded into an Osprey Quasar, which has an iPad pocket and a laptop pocket and does not in any way look like a camera bag.

Yep, I have one. It fits perfectly in my Timbuk2 XS Messenger. Great for a 5D3 with a medium sized lens, i.e. 135L. Much better construction than the Snoop insert.
Next images on my mind:
1. light trail
2. skater boy (this I don't know any person)

By now I am CONVINCED that BH has promised CR a huge cut if CR helps out in getting this lens sold. Fine by me. :)

I do have to support my growing family.  ;)

Sure my point is in the minority, just like wanting a stills only body but my main point was to counter the smugness stone thrown with sensibility. Maybe your so called 'nothing alternative' is a positive one. Less is more.

You're not alone. ;)   But it's also funny that you have the same opinion about the videofunction inside actual DSLRs. Maybe we're more or less oldschool photographers, no hipsters with popupflashs, swivel screens or 4k video-nonsense. The only Thing I would like on 4k is to get enough fps for freezing fast motions.

I don't see any sense in a cheap flash which I never use (and I mean never! I carried the analogue EOS5 for 10 years). But I would have to carry the flash around 100% of the time. Users who need such a toy should get a Speedlight and glue it to the Body.

So, by never using it, you really have no idea what it can do.

Come on, you can do better than that!

VSCD may have 10x the experience with strobes, on and off camera than you or I.

Internet boards are always so full of strong, angry statements about very minor details.

I bought a Thule pack.  It was the lowest profile bag with high capacity (it doesn't stick so far out on your back you look awkward and off balance like an astronaut) and it is firm enough to hold a shape and not look like a shapeless fat drooping garbage bag that is fatter than you are wide.

It also looks more like a hiking pack (being Thule) and not like a camera bag.

It is also a bag where (almost) all the space is for camera, lenses, camera stuff and laptop.  A lot of the hiking-looking bags are 50% open space for clothes and toiletries, which was not something I personally needed; I wanted the max available space for the camera stuff.

Here is the day pack that would hold what you want.

Here is the bigger one I bought.

The big one holds a ton of stuff and still looks and wears tidy (tidily?).  I may pick up the smaller one too, though, for when I really only need a more moderate amount of gear.
This image was on my mind for already 2 months.

Glad I finally pulled it off.

Please note that even if the Canon 1D X had featured a fully articulating LCD screen, this camera/lens combination is completely unsuitable for selfies.
Major disappointment.

Seriously, he mentions that this would work with a 2x converter and mumbles about how this lens would perform on a crop body. Why on earth is not using it with a converter or at least trying it?

Edit: the funny thing is, I always catch them while they have something in their mouth. Still look for that catch without!

Very nice series, candyman. I especially like the last picture.
For the people who claim that the camera does not matter. Please show me a picture taken with a P&S of a pole vaulter at just the top of the jump.
Most (99.99999%) of such pictures are taken with something that takes 6+fps. Good cameras take good pictures, yes things like composition are not related to camera abilities, they depend on photographer.
How many good pictures in challenging light conditions come out looking good with a crappy camera?

If good cameras didn't matter then why would anybody buy a xD cameras instead of P&S or even Rebels?

You can probably buy a new D7100 with 24Mp and AFMA for the same as this. Canon miles behind as usual.

"Rebel"...what a crappy name or do the Canon marketing department think that the USA is on a different planet or something.

So to match the D7100/D7200 we will have to wait for for the 80D presumably or then maybe not - remember the 60D?

If I had expensive fast lenses I would not touch this camera. Great for DSLR scanning though with its big files!
