This is a tale of two camera bags I found on my recent search. One is a smaller, relatively inexpensive model, perfect for a mirrorless camera body with 2-3 lenses, plus some accessories. The other is a bit larger, considerably more expensive, stylish, and very well-made.
Tenba DNA 8:
I have to say that when I stumbled upon the Tenba DNA 8 bag in the camera store, I was immediately impressed, and the more I examined its qualities, the more impressed I became with its well-thought-out design.

ONA Prince Street Camera Messenger bag:
The stylish design of the new ONA Prince Street camera bag jumps out at you immediately. Upon closer examination you realize it is not just another pretty face, but a very rugged, practical messenger style bag for a compact DSLR or full mirrorless camera kit. It comes in two styles -- waxed canvas with full-grained leather trim, or full leather. In both styles the fine materials and workmanship of the bag is quite apparent.
|The ONA Prince Street bag finished in Slate, water-resistant waxed canvas and fine leather trim. You can see the beautiful tooling of the bag even in the photo. It has both a removable clip-on handle and shoulder strap.|
|The two front clips are hidden under a leather strap and snap into place. They are easily released by pushing in the front of the spring clip.|
|The underside of the bag is heavily padded and quilted for protection.|
|The interior is deep enough to accommodate long lenses and a camera with lens attached. A slot in the rear can hold up to an 11" tablet or computer.|
|The ONA Prrince Street comes in four varieties. Clockwise from top left: Antique Cognac full leather, Dark Truffle full leather, Field Tan waxed-canvas with leather trim, and Smoke (my favorite) waxed-canvas with leather trim.|
