Hmm.  I'm really liking the EOS-M with 90EX acting as master and 580EX II off-camera as slave.  What would be a good bag, not too big, that will fit EOS-M, EF-M 22mm, 90EX, and 580EX II?

The 580 pretty much screws the "not too big" bag selection. How about carrying your flash in a pouch on your belt? Think Tank and Lowepro make some nice ones.

Digging through my closet, I found an old "M Gear" bag that used to be too small for DSLR but perfect for EOS-M + 580EX II.  In the spirit of bargain-priced EOS-M, I shall refrain from buying yet another bag  ;D

Good timing. I usually find something like that out after I've already bought a new one :P

I read that (video)camera bags are often adopted by many mirrorless user.
 
Did someone successfully try to carry a EOS M + EF-M 18-55 + EF-M 22mm using the cheap amazonbasic bag?

Tamrac model 5692.

Fits the M plus 22mm perfectly (I use a wrist strap), and it has room in the front compartment for spare batteries and cards.  I like the fact that there are no zips to fiddle with in the main compartment, though this may make it less weatherproof than some.

Somebody recommended this wrist strap.  I just received mine from Amazon yesterday and its works great!  Much better than the neck strap that came with the M. 

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00009V4G9/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The wrist strap along with the Lowepro Dashport 20 works out very nicely with the M + 22/2 lens.  When I install a larger EF lens, like the EF 24-70 2.8 II that I tried it with today, I used a Lowepro Toploader Zoom 45AW, but its sloppy in there.  I don't anticipate using it with this lens as a regular practice (it's my default lens for my 6D), so I'll make do with cases I have on hand.

Amazon is a great resource, but they have a few bad habits. One of the worst is that they frequently, not always, list the size of the box the item comes in rather than the actual item. You would like to think that they wouldn't do that with their own products, but...

When I get my EOS-M2 I'll probably get an Acme Made bag. Possible this oneā€¦.

My wife has an AM backpack and it's well made, stylish and free of over engineering. Sleek and purposeful.

[/size]I know that the forumistic masses were eagerly awaiting for my test.  ;D
[/size]Many of the canonrumorsforumers (nearly 42,500 :o ) sent me Private Messages asking me to show them my results. And h[/size]ere they are.

[/size]In my field test, the Amazonbasics bag managed to swallow:
[/size]- one spare LP-E12 battery + 2 (two) spare AA batteries in the front pocket
[/size]- one SD (but more of them can be hosted by the 2 (two) side pockets
[/size]- one microfiber glass cleaning cloth
[/size]- and ...
[/size]
[/size]- ...suspance...
[/size]
[/size]- now just 5 minutes of advertising. Well'be back soon. Please stay tuned.


















[/size]Just jocking.  ;)
[/size]
[/size]
[/size]
[/size]-EOS M plus EFM 22mm, Flash 90EX and EFM 18-55mm (with lens hood - reversed) found place in the main bag sections.  :)
[/size]
[/size]
[/size]Test passed. In other solemn words, "A small step for a man, a giant leap for mankind".

Hmm.  I'm really liking the EOS-M with 90EX acting as master and 580EX II off-camera as slave.  What would be a good bag, not too big, that will fit EOS-M, EF-M 22mm, 90EX, and 580EX II?

I highly recommend Think Tank bags.

I just bought the Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 20. Haven't got it yet (should arrive the same day as my EOS M), but I LOVE all my other Think Tank bags so I'm assuming more of the same goodness. Seems about the right size for what you're asking.

[bump] I got the Think Tank MM 20 and my EOS M kit (with the complimentary 90EX!!). The bag is perfect for my needs. It will comfortably hold the camera w/22mm lens and wrist strap attached, Canon lens adapter, 40mm pancake lens, speedlite 90EX, iPhone, several memory cards, extra battery, my wallet and car keys.

BTW, for those who like Black Rapid straps: I have a Black Rapid SnapR 20 bag that I use when I carry my G11. The EOS M w/22mm and pinch lens cap fits into it, but it's a very tight squeeze. The strap, on the other hand, detaches from the bag and has male and female clip ends, a slider unit like on the bigger BR straps and a small version of the fastenR that screws into the cameras tripod mount. It's like a mini RS-7! And it fits into the Think Tank MM 20 along with everything else mentioned above.

Regarding the large flash unit question, I don't own a 580EX II, but my 430EX II will easily fit in the MM 20 along with the camera if I move one of the dividers and tilt the flash's head to the forward position.

Now I can carry it attached to my wrist, with the Canon ER-E1 strap.  I went with this instead of cannibalizing the neck strap attachment and adding a different wrist strap because I use the neck strap sometimes, too, and this makes it a lot easier to switch back and forth.

In my mailbox.  ;)

I suspect it ended up in there because I ordered it from Digitalrev.
