I prefer Kata bags, they are very stylish and rugged.

I decided to go with the crumpler 4 million dollar home. I guess I'll just stick with that until I need another one. I know someday I'll need a backpack one with room for tripod and lunch like DaveHolmes mentioned.

Also I'm planning on going to big cities with my camera. Are cameras one of those things that people like to steal?
That depends: WHICH cities are you going to visit. And even inside a city the crime probability varies massively. For instance I don't feel insecure strolling through Boston, but there are some side streets, which might be less enjoyable late in the evening...

Well, the K30 is not as hefty as the K5, but still a good weight. Couple it with the old manual metal+glass lenses, it will come in close to 2 lbs of hard metal and sharp glass. If someone tries to grab my K5 from me, it's going to be between the camera and the muggers head - and the camera will not be on the losing end of that discussion.

I don't like the 2 Lowepro shoulder bags I have for walking around, so I just ordered a Kata 3N1-10 sling bag to carry a minimal walk-around kit. It should be here tomorrow and I'll give it a try over the weekend.

I recently bought a Crumpler 5 Million Dollar Home, and it only just fits the setup you've mentioned (well, two primes as opposed to one and a K-5 instead of the K-30). I tested out the 4MDH, and it felt a bit too small.

Yes. In cities bags that a) don't look expensive, b) don't look camerish, and c) are easy to keep close are better IMHO.
In this case you can convert a classic messenger bag for 20 bucks

That's what I've done in the past when I need to go downtown and want to blend in a bit.

HI all. I've recently bought a K-30, and I'm looking for the smallest bag that will fit the K-30 with the DA 18-135mm WR lens, a smaller prime lens, and extra batteries. I'm not familiar which brands are good. Been looking at Lowepro and Caselogic. I like the sling types, but they all seem to be too big. I definitely don't want a backpack type because I will not be buying or carrying that much gear.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Nearly two years on and I'm happy with this one. The size and design are just right. I'm not sure if Crumpler still make it though.

I'm using this backpack to store my photography stuff AmazonBasics Backpack for SLR Cameras and Accessories (Black): Camera & Photo

The dividers have velcro making each of the compartments alterable to your needs. It also has quite a number of pockets for things like manuals, memory cards, cleaners, and earplugs (necessity for airshows and auto races).

For on the move, though, you wouldn't want this loaded to the brim with your stuff as well... it holds a lot of stuff.. it would get heavy quickly. hehe
