I sold my Domke F3 bags but kept my F6. Footprint is similar but F6 overall volume is considerably larger.
The F6 has a copious main compartment and dispenses with end pouches, which I dislike and never use.

Probably too late to be useful... but I use 2x bags, depending on what I need:

1. LowePro 202 Slingshot - $60
Love this bag! It is ergonomic how it fits on your back, and I love how you can just wrap the bag around for easy access. It can hold 1x body comfortably w/grip, with 5x slots for other things. The slots are pretty big, and deep. Big enough to put multiple things in one slot, or even a Sony a6000. There's a roomy pocket on top with accessories pocket on front. If I need to casually carry my K-1, with some accessories, or a videography kit... it's perfect!

2. Amazon Basics Bag - $35
If there's one thing I don't like about the Lowepro bag, is that there isn't a space to hold a laptop (nice for Tethering setup). This cheap, yet effective bag can hold 2x bodies, a plethora of lenses, and a slot for a 15in Laptop. The accessories slot leaves a lot to be desired though! This bag feels a bit flawed, IMO. It does the job on professional gigs, carrying everything. I will say that I don't think it does a great job of distributing the weight. Not a bad bag (possibly the greatest value for a bag), but there is something unsatisfying about it when I use it... not sure what that is.

I wish I could find a bag like the LowePro bag above... but one that has a slot for a laptop, less than $100??
