Toploader Zoom AW Series
The weather-protective, streamlined and easy-access solution for a DLSR kit
Lowepro understand the appeal of a toploading camera bag: it's lightweight, provides a snug fit for your camera, and is designed to makes it easy to grab your camera and shoot your subject. The Toploader Zoom AW series is a protective solution for outdoor photo enthusiasts who are passionate about their pursuits.
Ideal for a day of outdoor activities, sports or sightseeing, the Toploader Zoom AW moves with the body and easily slips into a larger bag for work or travel.
Lightweight and slim, its holster-style design provides an ideal fit and easy-to carry option for most standard DSLRs with their attached zoom lenses. Add Lowepro's patented, built-in All Weather AW Cover and you have a truly protective bag for your camera investment.
Packed with practical, protective features including an easy-access lid with dual zipper pulls, an inside zippered pocket, fully padded interior and plastic D-rings for secure attachments.
Stash your small accessories or personal items—anything you want to grab in a flash—in the convenient, zippered front pocket.
Turn your toploading shoulder bag into a hands-free solution with the compatible Topload Chest Harness (sold separately and compatible with 50 AW and 55 AW models).
Don't let a little rain, dust or sand spoil your shoot. Use the patented, built-in All Weather AW Cover to protect gear from the elements.

I had worked this out before I purchased the bag so it is not a criticism, just a tip for prospective buyers.
So far as the bag goes, it is of the usual Lowepro quality and is ideal for my use, as a day bag on holiday. It will definitely be my second choice bag and used only occasionally because it does not afford much protection due to the tight fit. For everyday use I will stick with the Slingshot as the extra space provides greater protection, and ease of packing and removal. One thing I will be doing to the Toploader Zoom 50 is to use a stitch picker to remove the velcro patches fitted inside the bag. They catch on the lens hood as you remove the camera and rip the hood from the lens. A reason for the velcro catching is that when the rainhood is stowed it causes the interior of the bag to bulge, and as I've mentioned, there is no slack.
If in doubt about the size of your camera and lens, and especially if you want to carry a spare battery etc, go for a bigger bag. Otherwise, a well made bag. Lowepro are always expensive, but I could not find a cheaper alternative for my purposes.
UPDATE OCTOBER 2013
I took this bag with me to Greece this summer to be used as a walk-around bag for my Canon 5D Mk3 plus 24-105. It was excellent. Compact enough to not get in the way, access to camera was easy, and it was very comfortable to carry either on my shoulder or, more usually because of the heat, by the handle. When carrying on the shoulder I was able to comfortably grip the handle and strap together to keep it more secure in crowded places. I was also able to carry my spectacles and other small items in the front pocket. Well worth the money.
UPDATE NOVEMBER 2014
I have upgraded my rating to four stars. I use the bag more often now as I have more confidence in the protection it affords. In Greece this year it had to contend with torrential rain. The rain-hood coped very well, and the bag dried just by leaving it open overnight. The straps and rubberised grip have not deteriorated at all. It is compact enough to be useful at functions, parties, walking about, etc without being too cumbersome.
The waterproof cover is great - it stows neatly at the back but can be deployed quickly in the event of a downpour and the pocket on the front expands so you take even more with you. Great purchase.
The Lowepro 50AW toploader easily takes the camera with short zoom attached, and would, if I chose to remove the protective pad in the bottom, accommodate it with the larger lens. The bag is well made, has storage for batterries/cards etc and a very handy rain cover. The sliplock tab on the side takes my spare lens pouch and with belt loop, shoulder strap and carrying handle, is very versatile indeed.
A good choice, and coupled with the usual excellent service from Amazon, a good all round buying experience
Well built and sturdy with adequate padding throughout and enough extra storage compartments to be useful but not too many to make it bulky.
I'm glad I bought this case instead of the 'official' Sony case that costs £15 more.
