Depends how many lenses, what kind of photography you figure you'll be doing. Mine's a Lowepro Rezo 170 AW, fits a few filters, the D50 with a smallish lens mounted (50mm), a secondary slightly larger lens (currently the 18-55 kit lens), the battery, charger, some other misc stuff (with a bit of wiggling, anyways). I'm not sure if the 70-200mm will fit in there properly, I haven't seen the dimensions first-hand, but I think it will (11.65cm length from mount to tip, according to the site)

If you're taking more, then upgrade. My Lowepro cost about $45 CAN I think.

My Crumpler 5 Million Dollar Home suits my D50, 18-55 and 70-300 lenses plus wallets, mobile phone and other stuff just nicely (with room for one more lens or a flash). Of course you can go bigger or smaller if you want.

I tried several holster-style cases and picked the Lowepro TLZ2:

http://www.lowepro.com/Products/Toploading/classic/Topload_Zoom_2.aspx

It has enough room to hold a medium zoom (e.g., 70-300) should I ever get one. The TLZ1 is a little shorter if you don't need the room.

I had the Lowepro Ex 140, it would fit your kit just fine... your kit was what I was going for initially so I sized everything around that.

I am also in the market for a bag. I am looking for a backpack/daypack type that I can put some personal stuff in as well as my cameras.

I have looked online at both of these? Anyone have any experience with either?

Lowepro Orion Trekker II Dual
or
Tamrac 5547 Adventure 7 Photo Backpack

They are both pretty much the same price.

After recently upgrading my bag, I'm going to urge you to buy a bag that is big enough for you to grow into. I bought my first bag thinking it would be the perfect size. Now, a SB600 and Nikon 80-200 later, I was forced to upgrade to a bigger bag.

I'd rather have extra space and know I could load everything I will eventually own.

Goodluck.
Thomas

I subscribe to the lighter is better theory. After years of lugging Notebook computers through Airports the last thing I want to do is carry all my photographic gear all the time in the off chance that I may need some obscue filter or one of several lenses. I'd rather have a smaller bag that has room for a body and a couple of lenses and or a flash and enjoy my days activities rather than be weighed down like a pack horse.
Also one very important thing to consider. If you have ALL your gear in one bag ALL your gear can be lost / stolen / destroyed INSTANTLY.

I've just bought the Lowepro AW Mini Trekker Backpack. Holds the D50 with a lens and enough room for quite a few other lenses.

Also has a Tripod Holder on it.

Very nice bag, bought mine on ebay for half price.

I went for the Orion II Trekker and it does just what I need, holds D50 with 18-55 on board, 70-300, flash and random stuff(MP3 player etc). As some of the other posters say, depends what you need it for.

Incidentally, it doesn't look like a typical camera bag which may be better for security when travelling. Plenty of room for snacks and so on too.

If I had to go with a camera bag, id probably go with Tamrac. Most if not all their products are made in California, and of quite high quality. On top of that, they have what seems like a bag for every different combination of gear, so finding one that fits just right shouldn't be a problem. I think the explorer series is nice for storing one body plus an extra lens.

However, depending on what parts of Europe you are travelling through, you may not want to carry your camera in a bag that looks like a camera bag (i.e. thief magnet). In that situation, I would prefer to pack the camera in a form-fit case (i.e. the Nikon semi-soft or anything with that shape) and then toss that into a regular backpack. Alternately, you could wrap the camera in a T-shirt and put it straight in.

Whatever you choose, enjoy your trip!
