Although the Corium 1 managed quite well my SLR gear (see previous post), I was often having to use the larger Corium 5 to accommodate the D700 with the 24-70mm F2.8. Only when using small primes or the 105mm Micro, I would use the Corium 1. Eventually it was making more sense to leave the D700 in the larger bag and not bothering to use the Corium 1 for it.
Now I found a very good use for the Corium 1: Rangefinders! Super light and with small lens, they were “born” to fit the Corium 1. I am actually amazed that none of the rangefinder/leica websites don’t even mention this high-quality-good-looking bag. A recent review of accessories for M cameras by Ashwin Rao was featured on Steve Huff website (http://bit.ly/rao-pimpmyleica). Unfortunately I did not have this post up at the time to suggest the inclusion of the Corium line. Anyways, here my review along with pictures. As always, feel free to contact me for any questions (some of the pictures from my previous review were included here as well).
I hope you like this quick review on the Corey 1 for Rangefinders. Soon I will be on a long trip and I am still debating if I should take the Corium 5 for the extra room and the fact that the iPad can be placed on the external zipper pocket (unfortunately you can’t close the zipper with the iPad there… it would be nice if I could have it completely inside the bag….)
