Someone recommended Crumpler camera bags to me, I've just bought a Canon 500D with the standard (18-55mm) lens kit.

I want to the bag to be as small as possible. Crumpler says this one is for a SLR and short lens:

I'm not sure if my lens qualifies as "short". Is anyone using this bag with a similar Canon? Does it fit and still protect the camera?

One of the product shots actually uses a Canon body: Product shot

the kit lens is also one of the shortest in the current product line (the only one that is physically smaller that I can think of is the 50/1.8; so I would expect it to fit. Of course, it is always worth visiting your local friendly retailer if you're unsure about ordering online.

excellent, thanks - I knew the body would fit - i was just worried about the lens. – Andy Clarke Oct 17 '10 at 20:01
As a follow up - I bought the bag and the 18-55 lens fits fine. I can even fit my zoom lens in there at a squeeze. – Andy Clarke Aug 21 '13 at 8:28
