Domke F-5XB User Reviews
Love this bag… already had it in black but needed another
“This bag is perfect for a Nikon DSLR with kit lens mounted or zoom that’s not TOO long… it fits the 35-70mm f/2.8D but without a lot of room to spare. It also fits another small to medium sized lens plus small flash unit (such as SB-400), or two additional lenses without flash. The SB-600 might make it a little snug for fitting another lens in, unless maybe it’s the teeny 35mm f/2. Depends on how comfortable you are packing your gear a little tight. It seems the pocket on this one is a little smaller than on the black version.” – By Perspicacious One
Great small bag
“I bought this for my Panasonic GF1, and essentially my micro 4/3′s kit. I intend to have two lenses, the 14-45 and 20, and this will have room for a tiny giotto rocket blower, too. Right now, I only have the 20, so it’s too big for just those things. Well, rather I have extra space. The small accessory sleeve has room for flat items like memory cards and microfiber cloths. For kicks, I could use this to carry my 40D+sigma 30 without a problem too. Unmounted, I could fit a 50/1.8 too (or the blower, heh). I think I will also use this when I want to use that combo on the go. The strap is also very nice. A bit too grippy though, as I like to sling it forward to pull stuff out of my bag.” – By Linh Nguyen
Great Small Bag
“This is a great bag very well built with just the right amount of padding. When I say just the right amount of padding I was looking for a bag that had less than the usual camera bag because I didn’t want a bulky heavy bag. I use this as my walk around bag for my Olympus E-P1 I carry this bag every day and it is holding up very well. It is also just big enough to hold my 40D + 17-55mm F2.8 with the dividers folded flat.” – By E-Shooter
Just What I Wanted
“I like this bag. It is just what I wanted and I like how it looks. I have other larger bags when I want to take more gear like the Domke F6 but I was looking for a small bag to hold my D90 with a 16-85 lens or 35 1.8 lens and still have room for an extra lens or flash and my wallet, cell phone and keys and this bag is perfect for what I want. Like all Domke bags it is well made, comfortable to carry and I can take it anywhere. Sometimes I use it as a shoulder bag without the camera. I haven’t found the velco fastener to be a problem in fact the wide size lets the cover be fastened in different positions. Others have criticized it for being small which I don’t feel is fair thats the way it was designed. If the bag is to small for your use buy a bigger one. “ – By CC
