I am looking for a bag as small as possible that will hold

500D with EF 50mm F/1.8 II attached


I am looking for a bag that is not camera specific though.

Any ideas?

Crumpler muffin top 2500

http://www.warehouseexpress.com/buy-crumpler-muffin-top-2500-expresso-sand/p1028736

It holds my 400D with 24-105L attached and has a pocket on the front for cards, filters etc

I unpicked the stitching around the crumpler logo on the front and removed it in an attempt to make it more "low profile"

Whatever you choose, be aware that minimal-sized bags seem more likely to engage the various controls, changing a setting during insertion and/or removal. I bought a small Crumpler that seemed so right, but it frequently moves my 7D camera from my favored aperture value setting. Otherwise, I really like the Four Million Dollar Home. Of course, what is minimalist and tight with a 7D will fit your camera more loosely.
