    I have come from a NEX-5R with the 1650 (which is a great take anywhere combo) and the LowenPro Dashpoint 20 was a great fit.

    Looking for something similar for the A6000 with the 1650 lens. The Dashpoint 20 is a little too snug for the A6000.

    What do other people use?

    Many thanks.

    Generally I'm either using a LowePro Messenger 100 to carry around a Nex 6 [plus 55-210 and Sigma 19 & 30 lenses] or else a Sony LCS-EMC. Anywhere you could try a Dashpoint 30?

    The Thinktank Turnstyle 10 would be a great option for your rig...

    National Geographic NG A2200.

    Took a gamble as the specs on paper were a little too small but it actually fits my A6000 perfectly with the SEL35 lens, and even ok with the SEL50 but it is a tighter fit.

    Also looks great in an urban hipster kind of way and has a very comfy shoulder strap.

    Looks like a nice bag but I just couldn't see myself buying that color combo. Unfortunately the other colors are full price.

    Yeah. I've got one. It's a really good bag, but it is colorful.
    I can also vouch for the National Geographic bags. I have a duffel from that same series Skipperjonce linked above and it's sturdy.

    I just went through the same thing, but I was after a 2 bag solution;
    1 bag to carry all my gear, and a small bag to carry my camera with 2 lenses.
    I'm still looking for the perfect big bag, but for the compact case I went with the Lowepro Format 110.
    This fits the A6000 with one small lens attached (sony 16-50, or sigma 30mm 2.8, or sigma 19mm 2.8), and a second lense, plus some small stuff like usb cable, spare battery.
    It's a snug fit, but for me it's the perfect size.
    I just throw that bag in my laptop bag, back pack, gym bag, wife's hand bag, or the kids nappy bag and were good to go.
    There's the Format 100 too, that is a bit smaller and I think it will only fit the camera with a lens attached. I didn't try it, so I don't know how tight that one is.
