bag for k-1 ii with 15-30 mounted

Any recommendations on a bag that can fit K-1 II with Pentax-D FA 15-30mm F2.8 mounted, considering the hefty size and build of the lens? Thanks.

I'm a big fan of the Think Tank Street Walker Pro series of bags. I actually have three. I bough one ten years ago as my bag for my general kit. I found it adapted perfectly to my K-1 with grip and my D-FA 24-70 mounted on it, with plenty of room for extra lenses. Then I needed a bag for using my K-1 with the D-FA 150-450 mounted, and I decided to get the same bag. And now that I've bought the D-FA 15-30... third times the charm. And actually I could have gotten other bags to work too. But what I like about having multiple copies of the same bag, is that I don't have to "relearn" where everything is. All the pockets are the same, so I always where my batteries are, my cleaning cloths, etc.... In my world the less thinking the better, ha!

You didn't say what style of bag you want. Messenger, backpack, sling, ...? Is it for hiking, or urban strolls, or drive-and-stop, or events, or ...? What other items do you want to carry?

There are many bags that can accommodate the K1+15-30, but different usages require very different styles.

Most bags will fit your requirement. If you can be more specific, I'll be happy to recommend my personal favourites.

Currently, I have a bag to carry few lenses and some accessories. I use it when driving/traveling. I am looking for a bag that can fit K-1 II with 15-30 attached. Preferably sling (with option to carry a flash and a lens if possible but not required) but open to other suggestions as well. Thanks.

To give more information, I currently have a Case Logic SLR backpack (Case Logic SLR Camera/Laptop Backpack - Case Logic). I also own K-5 IIs and K-3 II and use a holster bag (to hold with lens mounted, Case Logic SLR Camera Holster - Case Logic). The main backpack is used to carry lenses, filters, flash and other accessories while two cameras have their own bags that fits camera with lens attached with no more room to carry any additional lenses or flash. I was thinking about getting one more of similar bag to carry K-1 II with 15-30 mounted but together it becomes too big to fit into one of those. So, I am currently in search of a bag that can hold K-1 II with 15-30 mounted with any option to carry flash etc (not too big of a sling bag i guess).

My two favourite slings are the Mindshift Gear Photocross (10 or 13) which is ideal except it has no place to attach a Capture Clip, and the Peak Design Sling 10L, which is a tad less roomy than the Photocross and does not distribute weight quite as well, but has a fantastic design apart from that.

Small messenger bags could also work for your needs. Again, I'm partial to the Peak Design messenger.

One detail I forgot to mention earlier is that the K-1 has grip attached as well. Not sure if this changes any recommendations on sling bag.

I use one of these Lowepro toploaders . The TOPLOADER PRO 70 AW II fits the K-1/grip and 15-30 nicely. it also has good pocket on top for stuff, and one on th efront. It also has webbing on the side that let you attach extra lens holders, depending on what you want. if you need another lens or flash ect, just attach the bag, don't need anything extra and just travelling lite, remove the extra cases. I find it works great, .

Check the link, it shows extra bags attached ..
