I've got the Lowepro TLZ mini and it fits my Nikon N65 with a 28-80
Lens great. Looks like the one pictured will fit your 200 with no
problem. I like the Lowe because mine has a shoulder strap, handle,
and a wide loop to attach to a belt. A couple little pockets for
batteries and film, etc. makes it a versatile little bag. I took ours
on vacation to St. Lucia and it protected my camera from a little
rain, and and on business where it survived life in an overhead
compartment. I also chose the Lowe because it was available last
minute, I didn't have time to search around for a comparable bag.
