" Nikon D40 & Lowepro TopLoader 65 AW"


US
          

Recently got myself a Nikon D40 and would like to keep in safe in a holster style case. I"ve narrowed down my choices to the Lowepro TopLoader 65 AW and was wondering if anyone had any comments for this bag housing the Nikon D40.

I had a similar style case for several years but I used it as either a shoulder bag or with a harness that turned it into a chest pack. I tried it once on my belt and it was awful. It was OK as long as I didn't want to take any other lenses or a flash with me. I've since given that case to my son and I now use a Lowepro Slingshot 200. We went to Chicago to visit relatives at Christmas and I was able to get my F4 w/35-70 f/2.8 mounted, D40 w/18-200 mounted, 24mm f/2, filters, blower and flash diffuser in it. I put my SB-24 and tripod in my suitcase. The main thing to think about when buying a bag is not only how it works for your kit now, but how will it work if you add to your kit. I know you can add lenses cases to it, but individual lens cases are not always very practical in the field.

I have a 65 AW and have used it for my F3/T HP as well as my F5, believe it or not. It's a good bag and would work fine with the D40 and both lenses.

One thing to know up front...over time, you will have more bags than you can store...but that's just the way it is! LOL...
