    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?

    hoods, more lenses, little light, pen, "digital wallet".

    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

    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

    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.
