You might look at non-photographic bag options. I have a small "shoulder bag" ó yeah, the prototypical "man purse," though this one looks more like backpacking gear ó†that is barely large enough to hold my phone, my XPro2 with prime attached, and one additional lens. Typically this would include the 2mm f/1.4 and the 35mm f/1.4.

This has the additional advantage, especially for urban street photography, of not shouting "CAMERA BAG!"

When carrying a bit more gear I'll take a small messenger bag that has a padded insert added.

Would the One Bowery bag hold a x-t2, 16-55mm, 90mm, 14mm, and a flash? How weather sealed is it? Does not look like it comes with a rain cover, but it certainly looks like a nice bag.

I usually just use my 5 million dollar home, but its too big. I have a ton of bags but they were all from when I shot a FF DSLR. With the 5 MDH I can carry the camera and 3 lenses easily.

I don't think even the Prince Street will be able to hold all that (that's the one I have). I'll give it a shot tomorrow, although I don't have the 14mm. But I can tell you the leather version that I have took the torrential storm that I got stuck in Spain with no issues. Me on the other hand was soaked to the bone.


Edit: I added a quick picture showing (I forgot to set a better aperture) flash, 16-55 f2.8, 90mm & X-T2 with 16mm mounted. No way could all of it fit. The 16-55 just takes up to much room.

X-T2 with 35mm F2, and 16mm F1.4 in the bag. Sometimes add the 23mm f2 if I'm mostly indoors.

I also vote for the Domke F-5XB. Compact enough to be discreet, lightweight. Still looks like a (tiny) camera bag, but at least the waxed canvas version blends into my clothing style in a relatively neutral fashion. Doesn't look too expensive, which for me is a plus. I don't use medium or large shoulder bags as they tire one shoulder out relatively quickly.

Otherwise, for heavier or more numerous gear, I break out the Peak Design Everyday Backpack, 20L. Easy for me to carry this loaded, all day. Can't even add a water bottle to the Domke F-5XB, which makes it more for very casual use.

Thanks for the info and photo. Glad that your dear stayed dry, even when you got soaked!


I ended up finding one of these on ebay for a good price and it will arrive next week. It should hold everything that I need and reviews are very good. Hopefully, I will be as please with it as the other reviewers.

I carry my X100F w/ a Gordy camera strap around my neck. My Billingham Hadley contains my X-T2 with 16MM attached and another lens depending upon what I am out shooting.

I just picked up a Tenba Cooper 8, and Iíll admit, itís even smaller than I expected. That said, I can squeeze my X-T1 with my 23mm 1.4 attached, then stack my 35mm f2 (flipped on itís side) and 56mm in the other section. You could also easily switch out the 23mm or 56mm for a 16mm. I really like that itís got top zipper access, so I donít ever have to open the flap.

I should not have poked my head into this thread. My obsession with camera bags has been superseded lately with learning to use my new Fuji XT2 but now suddenly I MUST HAVE one of those Ona Bowery bags in antique cognac!!!

You won't be disappointed. It's a great bag and it looks great!

I use a lowepro drone bp 200. The top pocket holds a X-T2 and a 35mm up to 60mm lens. The body of the pack holds a lot more than you would think. When I want to travel light I take the 50-140 I used to carry Canon equipment and even with the long telephoto the bag is sleek and light (by comparison).

Not to be a troll, but I've never understood the fascination with the Think tank retrospective bags. I bought and quickly returned the one I tried. They offer very little padding, almost zero protection from the elements (unless you want to put on its little raincoat) and are very heavy for their size.

On the other hand, the Billingham Hadley small is about the same size as the retro 5, has far better padding, is better made, better looking, MUCH lighter and can handle any inclement weather that mother nature can throw at it.

Think Tank does make one of my very favorite small bags for a two lens kit - the 'Hubba Hubba Hiney'. I probably carry it more than any other bag I own. (and I own an embarrassing number of them).


P.S. I really like the size and design of the ONA Bowery. I tried one of those too, but returned it when my wife showed me one of her Coach handbags that looks almost exactly like it. (Ok - I'm insecure - sue me)
