    Looking for a bag for my spare E-PL5 and PL 25. I';m thinking something small like a Tamrac or Lowepro, but not sure what would fit or others experiences. I'm sure this has to be someone else's setup too (or an E-P3 with it, etc.)

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Crumpler has a few. They usually have videos showing what you can fit in them. I just bought their pleasure dome bag for my epm2 and 14-42 IIr

    Which size Pleasure Dome? They have a S and M... is the S too small for it?

    When it comes in, I'll let you know. We bought the small (in purple, for the wife) :biggrin:

    I recently bought the Lowe pro Event Messenger 100 to use with my OM-D. In fact, I could house this with the PL 25/1.4, Oly 40-150 ii R, Pan 14/2.5 with wide-angle converter, 14-42mm ii R lens, and still have room for a 2-3x FL-300R (these small flashes fit nicely in the front or side pockets). I've even managed to bring both the OM-D and E-PM1 out in the same bag, the E-PM1 for UV and IR imaging and the OM-D for visible photography.

    Hi Boon,

    How do you fit that much (Body + 4 Lenses + Accessories) in there?

    Is it a Tardis?:biggrin:

    The Lowepro website shows it having three sections, only, to the main compartment. I'm looking for the smallest bag I can that will fit my E-PL3 + 4 Lenses + a few Accs, but discounted this one looking at the layout.

    Got any pics with it fully loaded?

    I have a Lowepro Apex 110 AW that fits my entire kit.

    This is a very small bag. You can probably get an even smaller one, like the Apex 100.

    I usually have the PL 25/1.4 on the OM-D pointing into the middle slot, the 40-150 in one slot (usually the side where the grip goes onto, the dividers will protect the lens below), 1 or 2 lenses in the opposite slot such as the 14/2.5 + 14-42 ii R, and usually there is enough space below the PL 25/1.4 to house something like the wide-angle converter. The FL-300Rs can fit into the front pocket (2 of them at least) and there are side pockets to put other things such as the Oly 15/8 pancake lens and another FL300R. It is extremely light as well even with all that kit.
