    That IS pricy! But the Brixton does look good. I think I need something less camera, more messenger if that makes sense

    Does it have to be leather?

    It makes perfect sense. I just went with the ONA because it keeps my gear safe, secure and divided thus avoiding damage. Could get a normal messenger and an insert I guess, or as suggested perhaps a non leather equivalent?

    It's not imperative, no. I'd like something long lasting though

    What about the likes of a Tenba DNA?

    I'm just looking on Ebay, and the Bowery Bordeaux looks good, but may be a tad small

    I usually keep my X-T2 with 35mm and 55-200mm in there. Not much room otherwise tbh.

    I actually have a Tenba DNA that I bought off of here too. I found that a bit too boxy for my liking to be fair

    Another vote for the ONA Bowery but, as noted, is on the smaller side. Works fine for me with an XT2 18-55, 14 and 23 plus flash and batteries (my travel kit). Also good ‘man about town’ bag for X100, ipad etc when dodging the shops!

    I'm being drawn to the Bowery. I wonder why it only has one divider?

    I have a Billingham (the one without the handle) which will take a T2 with 10-24 attached plus my 35 f1.4 & 80mm f2.8. I can then put my wallet & phone in one front pocket, batteries etc in the other. I can also get my 10" iPad Pro in it as well. I have the tan/sandy coloured one and it's the best small bag I've ever had.

    I'm not a massive fan of Billingham. I don't like the pockets you find on the outside of most of them. They always seem so chunky. Seems like I'm looking for a bag that doesn't exist. Who knows what I'll end up with!

    I've been looking at the Peak Design stuff, but it's so expensive (I got the Billingham really cheap, like £30 cheap!!:D)

    My mate was moving house and needed to ditch some stuff, and his Hadley Small was just sitting there. He said I could have it, but I felt guilty, but I only had £30 on me at the time...

    Frankly it would be too small for two dividers. I have the leather Bowery and I use it with a Sony A7iii with a 24-105 lens attached. There is then sufficient space to stack another lens on the other side of the divider. Usually a Sony 55mm F1.8. With the leather being of such a good thick quality, it actually makes it more difficult to store much in the external pouches etc. I can squeeze a spare battery, a few wipes and not much else. Perhaps something to consider.

    I have a Billingham Hadley small and it is fine as Steve says.
    For X-T2 with 18-55 attached and 2 small lenses a Lowepro Scout 140 suffices. Cost £35 new and is small and well padded.

    I just put another divider from an old manfroto bag in mine. Works a treat. Iirc I think ONA sell extra dividers if you want matching colours!

    Erm, 3 Fuji, 4 Canon + 3 film (1 Fuji, 2 Canon). It's not good, but every time I decide to sell one setup over the other I seem to find some reason not to... Plus the hassle of selling puts me off!

    Edit: lol, just realised the bag pic was just taken with a phone cam anyway!

    I get on just fine with a Crumpler Messenger Boy 7500. I do occasionally wish it was more weatherproof, but I should probably just get off my backside and spray it with something suitable...

    Playing with old manual lenses. Except this is actually a two-shot vertical stitch, because the nifty fifty wasn't quite wide enough for my purposes :)

    I'm curious about starting to shoot video of our holidays and trips to serve as memory for the future, do you guys ever shoot video with your Fuji's? I'm trying to justify if I should just get a GoPro hero and stick that to my backpack strap instead.

    Have to hand it to Fuji, they certainly look after their customers with Firmware updates, if that was Canon it would be their new camera lol

    Not strictly true, the 7D had an awesome firmware update towards the end.

    Don't think the X-T20 firmware is as positive tbh with some features added to the X-T2 missing. Sure they'll turn up eventually though.
