I will be spending 3 weeks in Italy later this year. I will be backpacking and staying in hostels. I'd like to get your suggestions for a shoulder/sling/front bag that I can carry my camera in front while my backpack is on.
Ideally I'd like this bag to also be my day trip bag to hold items such as maps, snacks, a RS book, water bottle.
I need to carry a dSLR with a "normal" lens and a zoom lens (70-200).
Safety is obviously a key issue since it's a lot of expensive camera equipment. Style is not quite as important but I don't want a horribly ugly bag.
Also, I really think I want to take the zoom lens, but I wanted to hear from people who did / did not take it and what they thought.
