What is a good camera bag for K-1 and three lenses?

What is a good camera bag for K-1 and three lenses? I have the k-1 and have the 15-30mm f/2.8; 24-70mm f/2.8 and the Rokkinon 85mm f/1.4 and need a good all around camera bag to tote with me each day because my camera always goes with me where ever I go in my car. Just looking for some suggestions and something that will not break the bank, I have spent enough on camera and lenses

Do you prefer a backpack, sling, or messenger style bag? Do you need space for a tripod, and what size of tripod?

If it's mostly for car storage rather than all-day walking, consider the Canon Deluxe Backpack 200 EG. It has ample room, doesn't weigh much, and only costs $40. Get something better if planning hour+ walks; the Canon bag has limited ergonomics.

The LowePro Slingshot series comes in several sizes. I'm not sure which size is best for those 3 lenses, maybe the SlingShot 202 AW. I like sling bags because it's easy to change lenses while wearing the bag. I think around $70 for this bag.

DeadJohn, the bag will be more for just carrying the camera and lenses in the car and only on occasion need to carry the bag. Light tripod if I have to carry the bag. I will look at the slingshot type bag and begin to check things out. Thanks for the starter

I use this to carry 15-30, 70-200, and 28-105:

The Rolltop: Our Outdoor Camera Backpack | Brevit?

It's a bit cramped because of the 2 big lenses, but works for me

I use a Lowepro Sling 100 AW. It handles my K-1, 24-70mm, 70-300mm, vertical grip, a set of adapters (1x macro tube, 1.5x and 2.x tele), 50mm, stereo microphone, speedlight, batteries and battery charger (along with remote shutter release, lens pen, back cap, body cap, 8-10 memory cards and a couple of cleaning cloths.)

My LowePro Sling 100 AW can hold: K-3 with grip, AA Grip Battery tray in bubble wrap, DA 12-24 or DA* 16-50, FA 100 Macro and DA 55-300. The front pocket holds a Polarizer, spare cards.

Easy to access the lenses, one is mounted on the camera for convenience.

The best bag I can think of for that is my bag.

A mighty big one, as you'll never stop at just three lenses, now you have a K1.

I mean especially so with K1, which appears to make most lenses "faby".

Camera bags only come in two sizes. Too big to carry around, and too small to hold everything you want to take along.

That's why some come with wheels... like my Pelicans.

I use a Domke F3-x with the included hand carry strap for a K-1, the three FA Limiteds, the D FA28~105, AF540FGZ and a couple spare batteries. There are two internal lens pockets and a divider to separate the camera from the 28~105 stowed horizontally. The flash and batteries are in the two external pockets. I'm confident you can fit your camera and three lenses in this bag with room to spare.

I also own a LowePro AW100 sling bag that can handle two additional short primes or a 70~200 mounted and the aforementioned 4 lenses.

Bag cRaZy...

Very true. I have my LowePro Slingshot, a Delsey small rucksack (I'ts a little bigger than the LowePro and holds a little more, but isn't a sling) then I have a gargantuan National Geograpic bag that's monstrous and huge, and weighs about 25-30KG fully loaded.
All three bags are generally full, and I shuffle stuff around to the smaller bags as I need it for shoots.
I could really use a couple more of varying sizes, and some hard shell stuff for travel!
