    Hi,

    I finally took a plunge and bought the Rebel XT with the 17-85mm IS USM
    lens. I also planned to buy another 50mm f/1.8 or f/1.4 lens together
    with some cleaning supplies. Right now, my camera and lenses are sitting
    pretty in their boxex. I need some recommendation on what bag/holster to
    buy for both day-to-day and storage. I am looking at the Lowepro TLZ
    Mini, is that sufficient for this camera with lens attached and 1
    additional lens?

    Thanks
    J

    batteries, memory cards, lens cloth, grip, flash, cable release, lens
    hoods, more lenses, little light, pen, "digital wallet".

    I finally took a plunge and bought the Rebel XT with the 17-85mm IS USM
    It might, but LowePro doesn't mention it being good for an extra lens.
    If you can stand something just 1.5" wider, you could get a Nova 1 nice and
    cheaply (there are folks on ebay who sell them for about $18 shipped). Mine
    holds my DR XT, a 28-105 f/2.8 lens, polarizing filters for both lenses, an
    external flash, a CF reader, the XT's battery charger, and a couple of
    cables.

    Hiya...went through the same dilema. Got a tamrack back pack--already
    outgrown it. You will need something operative, and something for
    travel (like airplanes). A good heavy duty storage case - as your
    treasures evolve, and a light weight holder for in the field use.
    I use a carhardt coat with giant deep and numerous pockets
    with velcro..for winter, and fanny packs for warmer. The cam is around
    my neck or on a tripod and i keep a couple plastic grocery bags handy.
    Works for me. If i had more expensive stuff, and were more
    professional, i might not be so cavalier. Also if i was more "inside"
    or portrait inclined..would get a big sturdy box with a handle..and
    maybe a collapsable hand cart.

    My two fanny packs: Large one holds 2 of 3 lenses; canon 70-300m,
    canon 10-22, canon 15-85, a 77 and 53m polarizer, a cokin 124L medium,
    a small compass and lens tissue (and a mini wire tripod).
    The small fanny pack has a sony f707 for macro's mostly along with
    an extra battery and mem sticks and of course...lens tissue.
    I have a bad back and like anything i carry to be below the
    L4-L5 discs..hehheh

    Tripod or monopod makes a nice walking stick, stream wader balance
    or club.

    Think down the road a bit is my suggestion. How will you use - in what
    conditions - where? Maybe you won't need much. Depends on
    what you want to do.

    The fanny packs go for about $5 appeice. The construction grade
    apparel will last a lifetime (if you don't do construction).

    I love my Lowepro Offroad. In the main compartment I have my Rebel XT with
    a Tamron 24-135mm, the 35mm f/2.0, 50mm f/1.8, and an EF-S 10-22mm. In the
    two external lens bags a 70-200mm f/4L and a 100mm macro. The thing is
    perfect.

    I use a tamrac velocity 7 sling pack. It holds a D60 W/75-300 IS
    mounted and normal and WA lenses along with the usual gadget bag
    gadgets. I really like being able get into the bag without removing.
