Hello,

soon a D5000 with 18-105 VR & 70-300 VR will be my new pleasure. Because a friend is bringing it for me down to Peru, I can`t test bags. So I wanted to ask what bags you are using? I thought about a shoulder bag, where all that and little necesities can find its place (second battery, filters, basic cleaning stuff).
Am curious about your answers!

I've used the standard, biggish, black NIKON shoulder bag for my D40, D80, and D90 (not all @ once) plus lenses and a SB-400 flash. It's not real expensive, but it is well built.

My two cents!

Carsten,

I use a Lowepro Slingshot 200 bag for my D5000. Everything I have fits in the bag, with room for lots more at the moment.

I carry:

Nikon D5000 camera
Nikon 18-135mm f3.5-5.6G AF-S ED lens
Spare Battery
Battery Charger
SB-600 flash
CPL Filter with case
Notebook
Release forms
Pen
Nikon microfiber cleaning cloth (for gray target)
generic microfiber cleaning cloth
Backup of critical PC data (Zipped and encrypted on DVD-RW)
4 spare 8GB SDHC cards
USB SDHC Card Reader
Battery Charger

All in this one pack. I have room for a couple of additional lenses as well.

My backup is an old generic gadget bag with 'Camera' embroidered on the edge. It holds everything the Slingshot does, with a handle on top and a shoulder strap.

I hope you will enjoy your new Nikon as much as I am enjoying mine!

Regards,

Tom
