great for my Pentax Q & Olympus mini pen . Love this bag! Best bag when riding my scooter.
I use this for a mirrorless system body with a short lens. There's also space for accessories such as flas, filters, memory cards etc. The bag is well made, and of quality materials. The exterior is heavy canvas, and there is good interior padding. I just wouldn't take it out in heavy weather.
I think this is one of the smallest bags that Domke make, but it's possible to comfortably fit 3(!) small film cameras in it (Using some camera bag partitions that I own, I managed to pack in a Leica, a Canon F-1, and a Lomography Sprocket Rocket), along with a light meter, nearly ten rolls of film, and et cetera like a lens cloth and a Sharpie marker. It's a pretty tight fit, and I wouldn't recommend buying this bag to carry around three cameras, but the Domke F-5XA is deceptively roomy and in a pinch can pull it off. With less gear in it, the bag has more give and kind of crumples in on itself, seeming even smaller. It's so comfortable with the gripper strap keeping it in position that once you step out the door you almost forget you're wearing it. I've tried every "small bag" solution I could think of, including DIY padding for non-camera shoulder bags, and this one takes the cake. I can't fit my Canon DSLR into it, but that's probably more of a statement about the awkward size and shape of modern cameras and lenses than about the capacity of the bag.
One of the best things about this bag is that it doesn't obviously look like a camera bag. That may or may not decrease the risk of theft. If you have a fairly simple setup, it's great--portable, durable, and protective, all in a manageable size. If you have more equipment, however, it would be too small.
