    Hi all, I'm in search of my next bag and I come to you for advice.

    I'd prefer Lowepro but I'm open to other suggestions.

    What I'm looking for is the smallest shoulder bag that will hold a Nikon D90 with grip and 18-250 lens (similar in size to the Nikon 18-200).

    6"H x 5.5"W x 8.5"L

    Some room for other miscellaneous would be OK but not necessary.

    Thanks in advance!

    The bag I use when I run light is the one below (Lowepro). It fits just fine with my Sigma 70-300 APO mounted as long as the hood is not mounted....the sigma is right at an inch longer than your 18-200 so length wise you should be good even with the hood attached.

    I bought the bag before getting the grip and it fit perfectly. Now that I have the grip....it still fits, but it is a much tighter squeeze. Don't know if that helps..but it's all I've got.

    Thanks!

    I was actually thinking about the Toploader 70 AW or Toploader 75 AW since the Zoom 2 seemed a bit shy for space with the grip mounted.

    The Tamrac 5627 looks promising as well.

    Tamrac 5627 ended up being the winner :lol:

    The price, size and reviews ended up selling me on it.

    I am sure you will enjoy it a lot, but if there is one thing that I learned fast... you will outgrow it pretty soon... always go 1 notch bigger than you expect you will need. I thought about small and ended up with a LowePro Trekker mini AW. 2 years later, I carry it... and 2 more bags when I go shooting. Had I gone bigger, it would have been one backpack and I would have been done, but I do have to say, the mini-trekker AW is perfect for those multi-day long jaunts around Disney... lol

    :lol:

    I already have my 'carry all' bag, it's a Lowepro Flipside 300 that holds everything I own including my tripod (minus my light stands/umbrellas). This is something I want just for trips to the little league games, zoo, walks at lunch time, etc.

    Must be a sign, they canceled the order because it was out of stock. :(

    Going to look into others now just to be sure.
