The Canon 5D Mark 2 with the 50mm Canon 1.4 USM lens has a pretty odd shape.

It is really short and really wide.

As it turns out, from my visit to two photography stores yesterday, not too many companies make camera bags to fit this configuration properly.

I am looking for a bag that will fit and weather protect my camera and lens (and nothing else).

Any ideas?

You could try one of the Crumpler Jimmy Bo's, they come in various sizes.

Or even the 4 million dollar home.

I just got the Think tank speed demon. Think it should fit the 5d. (it is not a bag but a belt system which I find easier to use)


It is available for less on Adorama.

  • nice, this bag looks like it will probably fit my need Apr 7, 2011 at 4:39
  • Glad it helped. I hear that many pro-photographers here use it. Apr 7, 2011 at 15:58

There is the Caselogic SLRC-200 SLR Camera Holster, I have the Caselogic SLRC-201 just a little bit longer. I think these bags have very good protection for your camera. The 201 has an suspension so that the lens cannot touch the bottom of the bag.

  • I think this has trouble fitting the 7d which is of similar size afaik Apr 1, 2011 at 7:38

I like my LowePro OffTrail 2 for such things (though the OffTrail 1 might be large enough for you).


Small, easy to carry as either a shoulderbag or a beltpack, removable side pouches for extra gear, sturdy.
