The Q7 Complete Kit Camera Bag

In my unboxing video, I said that I was likely to put the blue Q7 Complete Kit bag aside and get another bag, but I find no need to do that. The Q7 kit bag is a perfect fit for a very capable range of items. Pardon this iPhone grab, but across the the top we have the 03, the 07, and the 01 lenses; in the bag, the 02 zoom, the 08 wide zoom on the Q7, and the 06 tele zoom. In the pouch on the back of the bag (unseen here), the 40.5 CPL that came with the Q7 kit, a 49mm CPL for the 08, an extra battery, and Pentax remote control F. Permanently attached to the camera is the VERY useful Manfrotto MP1-C02 Pocket Series Tripod which I find perfect for the Q. PENTAX SHOULD MAKE SUCH AN ACCESSORY FOR THE Q-LINE. Pentax also should offer a small hotshoe-mount Q-flash with tilt/swivel -- how cool would that be? At any rate, you can see the range of capability -- from fisheye to 200mm eq, with a fast standard (01) and a specialty lens (07) -- I am able to keep with me almost all the time in a bag no larger than a man's shaving kit. With an Eye-Fi card in the Q7 I can send photos to my phone for quick app processing on the spot and send to wherever. (Most people will say that the snaps below should have been sent to perdition, but I'm still just playing with this kit's capabilities, so I will have to beg your collective pardon.)

Sweet! It's a really nice bag, I wish the price could be lower... much lower. Sucks there's no more room for the upcoming Telephoto Macro lens in it.

Considering that the Q7 with an 02 alone still sells for around $450, and the Q7 with the 02 and 06 for more than $600, I think $999 for the complete kit, which includes not just the bag but a CPL and the three very hard to find hoods (01, 02 (new style), and 06) is a sweet deal to grab in a single purchase. The 04 and 05 lenses are almost negligible, but the 03 and 07 have real uses.

Oh I know, the Complete Kit is an awesome deal but I'm talking about the O-CB133 bag alone. They sell for around $150 on eBay shipped from Japan

I see. I didn't realize the bag could be had separately. I know Pentax covers the home country better, though. I've had to order the 08 hood from Tokyo.

I really like the dimensions of that bag. My Q kit is half the size of yours but I still have problems finding the perfect sized bag.
