    Hi all,
    short question for those having nex-f3. How do you carry your camera? I am looking for a small bag that can fit either the default lenses or an even smaller one for carrying the camera with some compact lense only (very important for wife)

    Well, the middle sized bag i mentioned (Apex) and also the other LowePro bags are available in different sizes...
    Best advice I can give you here: Try them in a camera shop!
    AND: If you're satisfied with the shop buy there and not online!

    I carry a camera all the time, and I don't want the bag to scream: "I'm a camera bag, steal me." Even though it's unpadded a Manhattan Portage bag does just fine. If it's a lot of equipment, then it's the Domke.

    I used this one, is small and lightweight, it is also nice, fits the nex7 and nex5r or any other lens, plus the 55-210mm lens and two more, my iPad, and other things, and is only 35 bucks on ebay.

    Thinktank Retrospective 5 is the bag I use. It can be adapted in several different configurations and holds a surprising amount of gear. Also has a built in rain cover

    Check out Domke. They have some small bags that are both rugged and stylish. Billingham/ONA has some nice bags too if you're willing to spend.

    Hi all.

    I have been looking on the provided cameras
    and I want to have one to have only the camera with the basic 1855 lense. I want something that I can put over my neck so to have the camera always in front of me and make shooting faster.
    I found then this one, which I think is kind of expensive for me
    Sony Alpha NEX Lens Jacket Case | LCS-EJC3/B | Sony USA

    -Have you tried this one?
    -How easy is to take the camera out and start taking pictures?
    -Is it compatible with the nex-f3 with a more compact lense than the default one?

    I have the Lowepro Apex 60 AW for my grab bag and day trips. Slips on my belt quite unobtrusively and fits the Nex-5 comfortably snug with the SEL50F18, Minolta 50 1.7 or the SELP1650. I can just squeeze the flash and a spare battery too.

    I just bought a Lowepro Event Messenger 150.

    There is room for the NEX-7 with mounted 18-55mm plus the 55-210 zoom, SEL50mm/1,8, Sony flash HVL43 and EA-LA2. Also small bits and ends like pencils, remote, brush etc.

    The bag is fairly small and slim.

    I have a Crumpler 4 Million Dollar bag reserved for my NEX kit once I get it (the camera, have the bag already). They are very nice bags, stylish, and well made.
