    Maybe with a little room for a 75mm f1.8

    I think my old canon dslr backpack would be overkill :)

    Any thoughts would be great.

    A ThinkTank MM20 might fill the bill; I used one with my E-M10, 12-40, 7.5mm f3.5 FE and 40-150mm f4-5.6 R for over a year. It can also be converted to a belt pack. I had to go to the ThinkTank MM 30i when I bought the 40-150 Pro.

    I have the Think Tank 25i, which fits the EM-1 with 12-40mm PRO attached and 1 telephoto or 2 small other lenses. If I need to carry my large flash, then I remove the extra lenses to make space. It is quite small and rather stylish.

    I have a Tenba DNA 8 Messenger bag. It fits my EM1 w/12-40 face down in the middle, with a 17 f1.8 or 9-18 on one side, and a 40-150 R on the other. I'm sure the 75mm would fit, and still have room for a flash or pocket tripod. Pockets could take filters, cleaning stuff, extra batteries and cards, etc.

    Domke F-10 JD. It's my everyday camera bag and my urban walkabout bag
    Use it for my EM-1 with 12-40 Pro attached. Plus room for two primes stacked or 40-150 pro. Has a pocket for spare batteries, cards, lens pen, etc. And a flat pocket in the flap for cash, ID, etc.

    Last summer I took a trip to Savannah GA and carried an E-M1 with 12-40 on camera and 75 in a pocket of the Think Tank Retrospective 5 in Pinestone color. The bag was perfect for this small setup!

    Jazz messenger 2 will fit that combo attached with room for 2 lenses adjacent, maybe more stacked. $10-20.

    Think Tank Speed Demon (the first version) is what I bought for my E-M1 (with HLD-7 battery grip) with 12-40. Room also for my GF-1 with 20mm attached. 75mm next on my list to get, would just about fit in on top of everything else. Plenty of pockets elsewhere for filters etc, and can be strapped securely to your body for climbing etc.

    My avatar image includes the Jazz 36 which can hold G7 and two lenses easily, and a third with some gentle effort :eek: Tamrac has slighly larger Jazz bags too.

    Changing my avatar :p so try this -

    I have the ONA Bowery which holds my EM5 half grip with 12-40 attached and PL 25. So it should fit the 75 in that slot as well. Great bag for minimalist setup.

    I use Think Tank Photo TurnStyle¨ 10 and so far like it very much. It easily fits EM1+1240 hood on + GF1+75 1.8, and two batteries. It can also fit EM1+ pana 100-300 attached.

    Depends what style bag you like. I use a ThinkTank photo Retrospective 5 as my daily bag. I like this bag because think tank smartly plans out their space. The front and inner pockets are quite usable. I can also fit a standard iPad in the front pocket. I also use Lower Photo hatchback 16L backpack when I need the e-m1, 12-40, and 40-150 but I still want to be small and light. I am actually considering replacing the Lower with the smallest MindShift Gear rotation bag.

    Love my Ona Bowery. It's small but I can get both my 12-40 and 40-150 2.8 in it if I pack it right.

    The Ona Bowery is a great option for a small kit. I am able to get my E-M5 MK II with a small prime and 2 other small primes in the bag. I did order a set of small dividers for mine.
