My leather Nikon case (CF-D200) that I used for my D200, D300, and D300S will not fit my D800 with my AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED lens. I looked at the leather Nikon CF-DC4 case made for the D800, but it doesn't appear to have the length needed for my 24-70mm lens.

Therefore, I am in a quandary! I need a form fitting case, or even a slightly less form fitting one that allows me to carry just the lens and camera with some bump protection. A small pocket for a battery and extra memory card would be nice.

I bought a Case Logic SLRC-202 Camera Bag, hoping it would fit, but it is too narrow to zip up with the tall D800. Thankfully, it works great for my D600 with its 24-85mm lens. I am looking at the Case Logic SLRC-203 Large SLR Camera Bag, but I cannot be sure the D800 will fit or if it is tall enough to support the 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. Do you know?

Can anyone make suggestions as to a good, somewhat smallish, form-fitting camera bag for the D800 and 24-70 f/2.8 combo. Sometimes, only a powerful DSLR will do, and I hate to leave home without it. Thanks!
