p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Which bag for Batis 40/85 + camera?


I‘m currently waiting for my Batis 40 and 85 to be delivered.
What is still missing is a camera bag that can hold my A7III with attached Batis 40 plus the 85 mm Batis. The bag should be as small as possible. Is there anyone who would have a recommendation for this??

Thanks in advance for any tips!

Anyone here who has experience with this bag?

A friend of mine swears by the PacSafe LS200 when traveling (which he does a lot) with his camera. Which is a Leica and a lens.

But I can't speak to the size for your use case. I'm considering one for an upcoming trip since I have a large camera bag but was thinking of the Pacsafe for an A7RIV with a CV50 and Sigma 90 so if I went into a museum, I wouldn't have to check my bag.

@zeitlos, hope you don't mind if I put in a seeking bag request too

Wanting to carry the A7CR with a Batis 25, 40 and 85mm. Looking at the Peak Design 6L and wondering if they will fit with 1 lens mounted and the other 2 stacked sideways in the 2nd slot. Like this bag because of the waist carry option and the flex dividers with the built in shelf.

FYI...I have been using my Domke F-10 JD bag for 7 years or so as my smaller bag. It will hold the A7III with one Batis mounted and the other one in the 2nd slot. It has a full width expanded front pocket under the flap that I put a Godox V350S flash in along with my filters. Plus it has a zippered pocket on the flap itself, for batteries, cards and other small items, so it can hold a lot. Unfortunately it is not tall enough to put the 3rd Batis lens on top of the one in the 2nd slot, so that is why I am looking for a replacement.

Take a look at the Moment Rugged Camera Sling (Black, 10L). A little bit bigger but I can easily carry my 25/2, 40/2 C, and 85/1.8 Zeiss Batis lenses. Lenses are not stacked in its configuration. Often will replace the 25/2 with a flash if I’m shooting in doors. There is a smaller 6L version as well. It’s available ar B&H and other sites.

There are just so many...it's exhausting. I like Billingham and they have a nice small one, as does Peal Design, Lowepro, Domke, Thinktank etc. You ask here and everyone will have a different suggestion. If you are like most of us, your purchased bags just keep accumulating as there never seems to be a perfect one.

I carry that combo in a Tenba Messenger DNA 8. The bag is very well made, has quick access and theft deterring closure, and the camera and lenses just fit. A small tablet will also fit and there are numerous pockets for smaller items.
This model can be found at good prices as it has been replaced with the DNA 9.

I just wanted to give feedback and report which bag I have finally bought: yes, it‘s the WANDRD ROGUE 6L Sling Dallol Yellow. Maybe simply because I found that the color is cool/different. I like the material. And I really am amazed about all the solutions included into this little sling bag. The fact that the item is very well padded is not a disadvantage, although it is not particularly important given the usually manageable weight. But well, if you wear it for hours, you can of course evaluate it differently.

Some pictures. Here it holds my Sony A7 three (once with the “Sony extension handle“ and once without). Mounted was the Batis 18 (but the 85 will also fit). The additional two lenses are the Batis 18 and the Voigtländer 15 4.5. As mentioned above, you can still add a tripod, a watter bottle, a laptop/tablet…

If you do not put the camera into the bag, three Batis lenses might work out. If you have the camera inside, there will be only enough space for two (one mounted, one next to it).

And yes, it comes with lifetime warranty.

Just in case it‘s of interest, here are some pictures of the 3l version that I have just received yesterday.
















P.S. In the first picture, you can probably see, that my Rottweiler also liked the small one But you can also see: obviously good quality

Got the Peak Design 6L 2 days ago, for my general carry around town setup with the A7CR and Batis 25, 40 and 85. I removed 1 of the dividers and with any lens mounted to the body width wise, the other 2 fit stacked in the 2nd pocket with the shelf of the Flexfold divider separating them. Also room for my 67mm filters, and small tool/medical kit, iPhone, extra battery, sunglasses and other small misc. items in the top and front zippered pockets.

Carried this combo on my shoulder for 4 hours yesterday at a photo shoot. The bag was slung over my right shoulder and against my left backside, so my right hand was free to carry the camera via the PD wrist cuff strap. Did require me to reverse the factory strap for this to have the padded section hang correctly on my right shoulder, and this is the way I will carry it from now on. Worked out great and the bag was easy to move around to the front for changing lenses. Very happy with comfort and the approximate 3 KG (total kit) of weight, it was never a bother during the shoot.

iPhone photos below. I discovered the Batis hoods are interchangeable, even reversed, between all 3 Batis lenses. So in the future I will carry the hood for the 25 & 40mm lenses and use the 40mm hood on the 85mm lens. The stock 85mm lens hood is about 10mm longer than the 40mm hood, so it is now stored away for good. You might able to see the PD Capture Clip I put on the side of the bag, so if the camera was mounted to this, there is space for a water bottle or other items that could fit in the camera slot.

Just curious, if the B25 was instead mounted onto the camera and stored, would the other 2 lenses still fit into the other compartment? Seems like a tight squeeze.

Yes they fit in any combination. I place the bottom Batis lens in 2nd slot on its side under the shelf, either the 25 or 40mm, and my 67mm filters are in the side slip pocket on the inside of the compartment. The 85 fits on top of either standing up, as that shelf height does not change.

There is actually room to put a 4th lens under the camera with some smaller lenses, see below.

Just an FYI, I also have a A6700 with some APS-C lenses and wanted to see how it would fit in the PD 6L Sling. I am able to store a 4th lens under the camera, laying on its side with a divider in-between. Camera has the SmallRig Arca baseplate with the Sigma 18-50 f2.8 DC DN lens attached and the Sigma i 90mm f2.8 lens under it. In the 2nd slot are the Sony 15mm f1.4 G and Sigma 56mm f1.4 DC DN. Did not try it, but if I turned the camera front to back and added the 2nd divider, I might be able to add a small 5th lens....but that is too much

Like the Baits kit all these lenses use the same filter thread. Though it is 55mm, not the 67mm the Batis uses. Oh and this kit with 4 lenses total weight with accessories is 2.9 KG, just a tiny bit less than the Batis kit above.

Gee, seams like my A7CR and A6700 kits almost exactly mimics the two kits you have shown here. For my A6700 besides the Sony 15/1.4G I did pick up the Sigma 10-18/2.8 DC DN to pair with the Sigma 18-50/2.8 DC DN. Depending on what I’m shooting I take either the 15mm prime or the UWA zoom. Will have to check out the PD 6L. Thanks for the photos of your bags and camera kits.

We also have the Sigma i Series in common. I have the 24, 35 and 65 f2's plus the 45 and 90 f2.8. Know I could fit either body with a Sigma lens and have room for 3 others Sigma i lenses, as they are much closer in dimensions to the APS-C kit vs. the bulkier Batis ones.

...Edit

OK Steve, just for you I tried the Sigma i Series lenses with my A7CR in the PD 6L and got all 5 in. Put the 35 f2 on the camera and had to add the 2nd divider to the bag with the camera in the middle of the 3 slots, turned front to back, and 2 sets of lenses on each side. Had the 45-90 under the 24-65 and they fit fine. The 24 and 65 had their metal hoods reversed, the 45-90 share the 45mm hood and for the 35 I use a 1" metal screw on hood with a 62mm filter thread on the end.

However the bag becomes a bit thicker with the camera turned sideways, and the weight with 5 lenses and 4 metal hoods was 4Kg, a full 1Kg more than either of the 2 setups in previous posts. I would not carry 5 lenses like this but would go back with only 2 slots, like my photos above, with the camera turned lengthwise and at most 4 lenses total.

Actually have the I-Series 24, 35, 50, and 65 at f/2, and 45 and 90 at f/2.8. Right now the Sigma collection and A7CII are being kept in a Tenba Fulton V2 16L which holds it all but heavier that I want to carry so it’s being used for storage.
