There are many choices when it comes to camera bags, and deciding on what one meets your needs really depends on a few different things. I first suggest thinking about what type of environment you will be using the camera in. If you are going to be trekking all over the world, and exposing the camera to harsh conditions, I would suggest getting at least a durable water resistant bag. If you're going to use the camera primarily in your home and occasionally take it out of the house you could probably get by with a less durable bag that isn't water resistant. The next thing you should consider is do you anticipate carrying a lot of lenses, and accessories with you, or will it primarily be just the camera with a lens on it.
The four types of camera bags are a hard case, backpack, shoulder bag, and what's called a holster style bag. Hard cases are more for checking the camera when you travel, while a backpack would be used if you would be traveling on foot with a large amount of equipment. The shoulder bag is the most common, because it allows you to carry a good amount of equipment without being cumbersome. The holster style bag holds just the camera body with a lens attached, but they usually are limited to what size lens will fit in it.
There are a few bags I found that I feel would work well for this camera package, but by no means are these your only options. There is a shoulder bag that is made by Canon for their EOS series of cameras, and they also make a good holster style bag. If you are in need of a lot of room, and would like a backpack style bag Lowepro makes a good backpack. I hope this is helpful!
