Great for the light traveler May 15, 2008
I use this for my Canon G9 and it fits great with extra room for a small tripod, battery charger, extra battery, extra memory cards, and some cables. The material is very durable, rugged and feels as though it will last for years. It isn't an eye sore, it's minimalist, convenient to bring a long with you anywhere you go. The padding does the job, remember this is for light photography, it's meant for having a lot of equipment that needs a lot of padding. I plan on getting a external flash and a wide angle lens and if I take out the battery charger and the tripod those should be a good fit. The shoulder strap has these cool unique grips built in so the bag isn't constantly sliding off your shoulder, very smart and efficient. Velcro enclosure for the main flap is sturdy and strong, but it doesn't work well if you are in a quiet location. Great design and compactness, my only gripes are that the small pockets under the flap which do not have dedicated seals to keep things in place if your bag were to get tossed around or wind up upside down. Smaller worries are with the zipper when trying to get your equipment in and out from the bag (it hasn't happened yet) but you may have to be conscious about not scratching your stuff. Overall, I give the bag a A-

Perfect bag for NEX-5 / NEX-5N (double lens kit) Dec 02, 2011
This bag is absolutely perfect for EVIL / Compact system cameras. I have spent the last month trying to find an ideal bag for my nex-5n and the two kit lenses (18-55, 16mm pancake) as well as a place to put my phone. I bought a Kata Marvelx 20 and a Crumpler 2 Million Dollar Home and neither one really suited me. The Domke does.
The Kata, which was made for just the 18-55 didn't have a nice, soft lining, but a typical nylon-material and had a difficult circumference zipper along the perimeter of the bag. To open it, I had to zip up, right, then left to get at my camera. The 2 million dollar home would hold the camera body with the 18-55 attached and the 16 on the side just fine, but with the 16 mm attached, the 18-55 was too large to have both the lens and the camera side by side - the solution would require me to stack the camera on top of the lens.
The Domke F=5XA is my first Domke bag, but it will certainly not be my last. It feels very rugged, has some space for accessories (or a smartphone) and does not scream camera bag. It's also relatively thin--which is perfect for an EVIL camera--which prevents it from sticking out too much when you wear it.
The straps are metal and removable and the bottom is very sturdy. The straps also have a nice rubber-like material sewn into it so that the bag won't slip off your shoulders.
When I tried this bag, I also played around with the Lowepro Courier 80/70, Tamrac Rally 2, and Manfrotto Solo II and the Domke came out on top. The Lowepros looked like children's lunchboxes and did not fit the double lens kit all that well, the Tamrac was very thick and stuck out too much when worn, and the Solo II was too small for both lenses.
All and all, this bag is the perfect companion for the NEX-5N and other EVIL cameras.

Nice little bag Jan 28, 2011
It's a nice little bag. Durable material (standard Domke). Don't expect to get much more than the camera and a second lens or flash in the bag. You will not be able to fit a notebook or your sunglasses. My m4/3 camera, second lens fits nicely. Can't get the battery charger or a notebook in there.
Nice day bag. If you need a place for more than the camera, move up to a bigger bag.

Nicely made, but small size limits usability Mar 18, 2013
By Ari Denison
This bag is very well made, like all Domke bags, but it's quite small. You'll be able to put a NEX with small lens and your wallet and phone. That's about it. The front pockets are barely large enough to hold a credit card and SD cards. I don't feel comfortable putting a Nex battery in the front pockets, they're that little. It's dumb because the pockets could be considerably bigger (deeper) but were designed to be tiny. I replaced it with the F-5Xb which is a a much better and more usable size for my purposes.
