    I just got an NEX 5N.

    One of the reasons for getting an NEX Camera is it's small size.
    I often fly on airlines where it's hand luggage only, so I didn't want a massive SLR that took up my tiny 10kg allowance and this camera is small enough to put in my coat pocket.

    but I want to buy a bag to put my camera in with it's kit 18mm to 55mm lens, with the external flash connected.

    Does anyone use a nice bag? If so can you post a photo of what it looks like, perhaps from more then one angle.

    I particularly want to buy a bag that DOESN'T look like it is a camera bag.
    I don't want to attract attention to myself from pickpockets, bag thieves, etc, so the last thing I want is to be carrying a bag with a SONY logo on it. or anything which tell any would be thief there's an expensive camera in that bag.

    I have one of these: UTG Multi-functional Tactical Messenger Bag You can check it out at Amazon.com. Assuming that they sell it in the UK. It definitely does not look like a camera bag. Price is $30 US.

    That's nice bag, certainly good for taking lots of things in.

    I was looking for something as small and simple as possible to take my camera in.

    Something a bit like this kind of look

    I'd also love if there was something like this I could clip to my belt for the NEX 5N + 16mm lens

    This is the Sony NEX sling bag. Expensive, but well built. It's as long as a keyboard. Holds my nex 6 sigma 30mm, 19mm, Sony 55-210mm and 16mm w/fisheye. And that's just one pocket...the other holds my memory cards, charger, filters, etc.

    I'd love something like this, would come in useful on holiday - camera is very close to hand but can be hidden under a coat, so it doesn't even look like you have any bag on you.
