    I currently use a Lowepro bag to hold my GF1 and the 20mm pancake though thats basically all the space it has as it is one of the most basic level bags from Lowepro. Anyone have any specific recommendations for an EM10 bag thats light, relatively cheap, safe, and can carry maybe one extra lens? I'm looking to purchase an EM10 but also wanted some recommendations for a good bag out there.

    Thanks in advance.

    Not sure how much you wanna spend but domke has a few great options. I have the f-803 which is nice. I also have a lowepro photosport 100aw backpack for rougher terrain.

    You'll likely get as many opinions as there are bags out there :) but FWIW I've tried quite a few and have settled on the LowePro Event Messenger 100. I find it compact, accessible, easy to carry, and it comfortably holds the E-M10 with a mounted lens along with 2 other primes and a 40-150 zoom. The $30-$40 price makes it pretty attractive too.

    I just purchased a Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 30i. It holds camera with lens and 2 extra lenses and an Ipad also. Works great so far.

    I just bought one in black, I love it.
    If you need more space get the 150.

    I actually tried the 150 first but it was just too big for what I wanted. It all comes down to personal preference.

    I have the 100. I wanted a small bag to carry a body and couple of lenses. Perfect for day trips.

    I'm in the market for a small bag for day trips also. While traveling I generally bring my gear in a Timbuk2 messenger bag, but need a bag just for one camera and maybe two lenses (one zoom and one prime). Has anyone tried the TurnStyle 5 or 10? I have not been able to find them locally.

    Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 5 or 10.

    The 5 is too small for my E-M1 with 40-150mm, but might fit with a pancake lens; and the 10 is fine with the 40-150mm, and with smaller lenses would hold more.

    I purchased this Promaster Adventure 35 from a forum user and love it. Holds everything I have plus room for more.

    I recommend the Domke F-5xb it is a great bag for M4/3. And as a bonus it is rugged as hell and made in USA.

    A camera like the EM10 should be in a leather bag imo. Something like this.

    PatrickNSF, the turnstyle looks as though it would be perfect for a smallish bag for camera and a few lenses. I tried the Lowepro Streamline Sling, which in some ways appears to be somewhat similar, but, for me had some drawbacks as a "first" bag, however could serve well as a second bag. Less expensive than the Turnstyle.

    I have Lowepro Event Messenger 150 and it's great for carrying E-M5 + 2 to 4 lenses. Even then it has room for wallet and a bottle of water or a strobelight. The pocket for 10" tablet is very handy too.
