    guess?
    Either alone or on your digital camera. Or better yet on your OMxx.

    A couple to start.

    My OM-2 was my constant travel companion starting in the 70's. I loved my collection of mating Zuikos and traveled with 28, 35, 50, 85, 135 and 200 mm lenses plus a set of close-up rings.
    possible%20content.

    Being a sailor, I designed a padded canvas bag to store all of this and had it made by the Rhode Island Red Canvas Shop in Newport, RI.

    closed.

    An aluminum plate stiffened the bottom. Each lens fit in a padded loop as did the OM body (sans lens). The YKK zipper opening was unique and very useful - great access!

    top.

    A side pocket held a small flash, some filters, lens cleaner and tissues, etc. The other side had a slit pocket for a passport and plane tickets.

    side.

    Of course, all of this was carried in the pre-911 age of graceful travel!

    I love the look of the old Zuiko glass on my E-p5.

    My lenses all look so grubby compared to the ones in this thread. Gave them some AnalogFX treatment to hide the shame :)

    Took a dramatic shot of my OM 50mm f/1.8 on my OMD EM10.

    The 50mm f1.8 is like $30 on ebay. garage sales and thrift stores may carry one for even less.
