the Samyang 12mm looks about the same size of the XF14 if not smaller, correct? if so, I believe it would all definitely fit the 16L.

in this configuration, i had the X-E1 + 18-55 attached, XF35 and XF14 (this could be your 12mm). the extra 2"-long dividers I had just below each lens could be removed to accommodate a larger-in-diameter lens.

you could then place your 50-230 in the upper compartment of the bag. a lens pouch would be nice for added protection, or.. depending on the season/climate where you're going, you could toss a light windbreaker or light sweater in there to help keep it from moving around.

 

BTW, if you happen to keep on (I removed mine) and wear the waist strap/belt, you could swing the bag to your front side to swap out lenses from the main camera compartment in the back sort of like this...

Cool.  Thanks again for the the tips.  I really appreciate it!  It does look like a good option, specially since we might be all day out and about.  

 

Thank you very much once again!!

sure. np. you could always keep your 50-230 in the same space meant for the body + 18-55 while you're walking around with your camera at hand. and if you're going into a cafe or restaurant, just quickly toss the body w/lens into the top compartment.

I was just thinking that exact thing. Thanks!

The  Lowepro Photo Hatchback is mighty impressive but at 22L is a tad too small for my traveling needs. I am shifting to mirrorless with my recent purchase of the XT2 and intend to travel a fair bit with it. I plan to carry that along with a 35mm f/2 lens and the Samyang 12mm lens. Overall I am looking for a good travel backpack which shall also give me an option of keeping my camera secure. I have spent ages looking around for a bag that fits my needs (I need a good amount of space for personal items, a laptop and a fairly small space for camera gear), but all the large camera bags seem to cater to people with loads of camera gear and not for people like me.

 

Currently I am in the position of using a Tenba BYOB camera insert into my regular travel backpack and although it keeps my camera secure and gives me room for personal items, I do find it inconvenient to access the cameras and would like a more streamlined option. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

Slightly off topic ... but for home storage and rugged travels ... I use the Pelican iM2100. Case fits nicely in the safe. Always in an environmentally / climate controlled area. Perfect size for MY gear. -Cheers!

Check our the new Peak Design backpacks. I don't own one, but I've seen a prototype and they are very modular.
