Which shoulder bag for Pentax 67II + 3 lenses?

I would like to buy a shoulder bag for the Pentax 67II and the 75mm, 105mm, and165mm lenses.

I was just wondering which bag Pentax 67 shooters have and what they appreciate about it specifically.

Thanks for your suggestions!

Unless you are strong like ox, I would not recommend a shoulder bag for that weight.

Domke F-2 was my first thought as well.

I use a Tamrac "Extreme Series" but it is a backpack type.

Were you trying be able to shoot more on the go by having a shoulder bag? Its kinda a large kit, so I'd go for one with a proper shoulder pad for the weight. Maybe one of the larger sling style bags would be a good balance of accessibility and weight distribution if that is what you are looking for.

I think most of us here use a backpack for a kit like that. My favorite bag is the Flipside 400 backpack, large enough to put the gear id want to hike with and still comfortable. It doesn't stand out as a camera bag as much as it opens towards the back, which also is nice for quick access as I can either drop off should or flip around waist quick to get gear in and out.

The Domke US Post Office shoulder pad is a great accessory for a heavy kit in your Domke F-2.

I just received a Vanguard Heralder 38. In Aussie it's on ebay special at AUD$119. Got it for my RB67ProSD and extras. I'm quite impressed. Would not take it back packing but for shorter sessions and walks I think its good. It is big and a smaller model is worth considering as well.

I used a Billingham 555 for the Rolleiflex 6008 with 3 lenses and a converter plus several more things like magazins. This bag shapes around your hip quite nicely, which makes it comfortable. Yes, it is heavy when filled up, but if this is the kind of bag you want, little will beat it. Water-resistant too. And incredibly durable.

Well, I'm not as strong as an ox (more like a mouse), and I carry...
• Pentax 67
• Film galore
• Filters
• Notebook
• SMC P67 75mm f2.8AL
• SMC P67 45mm f4
• SMC P67 90mm f2.8
• SMC P67 165mm f4 LS
• 1 litre of water
• Three Mars Bars
• 1 Asthma inhaler
• Painkillers, and
• Fold-up walking cane...
• And my 2.3kg CF tripod.


It's about 17kg all up. Plus an Olympus XA and a Fuji X-30. Hang on. Throw in a picnic lunch too and last but not least, the Smartphone.

Well, what sort/size of pack is a very personal decision. Take your full kit into a shop and stuff it in the range of big-ish packs they have. The P67ii, being the heaviest item, should be at the bottom of the pack, followed by the next heaviest item with the lightest at the top.
