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.
