+1 nice little bag, particularly for a little Pentax DSLR, m43 or Leica kit. I just picked one up myself and was a bit surprised by how heavy the bag itself weighs (positive or negative depending on how you look at it). If anything, it has too many pockets.
The weight may have been one of the factors for me that led me to believe that it seemed bigger than it actually was. For my small MFT kit, I found it too much bag.
Think Tank Retro 5 = 2.3 lbs
ONA Bowery = 1.6 lbs
Not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things, but I was trying to keep things to a minimum - the primary reason I'm using the MFT system.
Here is a review and more pictures of the ONA Bowery:
That Bowery is tempting. I've been thinking of the F803 or Retro 5. The F803 has the super-stiff top panel, which prevents me from buying it. The Retro 5 seems pretty good sizewise, but is a little bulky (back to front is a bit wide) and quite heavy for its size, and I'm not super keen on the looks although it is nicer than most bags. Still, that seems a great option. But the Bowery looks like a winner. Could it hold a NEX body and 3 small SLR or rangefinder size lenses, or is that a bit much?
