    Any thoughts on a bag case for travel?

    Never looked for such a small bag before?
    Cloth type Domke is ok.

    I have the GX1 with 14mm, 20mm, 45mm, and LVF2.

    I use a small padded box thing I got from eBay: there are tons of "camera bag inserts" available. It fits the camera and lenses well, and then easily goes into my backpack.

    If I was to buy it again, I'd probably try to find one slightly wider (just measure your stuff). The camera with the 45mm and hood, and viewfinder, doesn't fit. I have to remove the viewfinder. (This isn't an issue with the 20mm or 14mm, since they're so slim.)

    That Gariz bag is nice
    A little pricey

    $100 is a good chunk of change, but its also pretty standard for camera bags.

    Ive used this tamrac micro for a couple months now with my GX1 and various lenses including the 20mm and its worked great! Im starting to collect more gear so Im using a larger bag now, but its great for grab and go.

    Im willing to part with it if your looking for a cheaper option. Mine is solid black. Retail $37.95

    Lowepro Edit 100

    For a very compact setup like that, you could get away with the Lowepro Edit 100, which is what I use.

    My kit consists of the E-PM1, Sigma 30/2.8 with aftermarket hood, and Panasonic 14/2.5. All of the above, including the small flash, spare battery, Olympus 'pleather' neck strap (detached), and lens & body cap fit just right.

    I'd imagine that with a dual pancake lens setup, you'd be able to squeeze it all in.

    Most of the time though, I leave the bag at home and wear the camera and put a spare lens and spare battery in my pocket.

    I use a Domke F-5XB for my 'lite' travel bag. Perfect for 1 Mirrorless + 3 lenses (One on body), or two lenses and Flash.

    I use it for my E-M5 or GX1 with any combination of my lenses or FL600r

    The bag is a great build quality with a comfortable strap. I also have a Crumpler 4 Million Dollar Bag which is equally as high quality and possibly more functional, though a very different style.

    The Domke F-5XB was $82 for the brown ($77 for other fabrics) here in Australia which I think is fantastic value.

    The Crumpler is a bit more expensive at $90, though may be cheaper outside Australia.

    My favourite though is the Domke

    For that setup I use the Panasonic bag I got from for free when buying the camera.
    It has two room setup, so one can fit the camera with lens attached and the other can be used for the lens.
    If you're fine with stacking the lens on each others, you could go with 14/20/45(1.8) setup in it. Or, the 14-42 PZ.

    But it doesn't have any extra pocket.
