    Just ordered myself a dp3 and hood but wondered what cases you use?..Ideally I would like something big enough to take the merrill and my little fuji xf1 and couple of spare batteries.Any advice appreciated.

    My DP2M and DP3M are on their way, but I expect to use them with the ThinkTank Retrospective 20.
    (Note that I added padding to the bottom after I had a lens damaged when the bag fell from 50 cm to the floor! Poor design in that respect. But the extra padding does the job.)
    I now use it with several combos, notably the Agfa Super Isolette and Contax G1, anything really except for the Rollei 6008i.

    What I’m curious about is tripod use. I have a tripod bag, and a small tripod will never fit the bag (and anyway, it would make it too heavy). Will I opt for monopod? Not sure yet.

    Ah, and here I thought you were asking us to make the case (argument) to buy a DP3.... Done!

    Few quick "Test" shots..very pleased with it,love the build quality and menus are nice and simple,not bogged down with gimmicky features like some.
