    I know a few of you out there have this bag. I'm wondering if it will hold an EM-5 (half gripped without the battery) and two Panasonic f/2.8 lenses: the 12-35 and 35-100.

    Any thoughts?

    I don't have that setup, but I can fit my G6 with O45 mounted and the 14-42II along with a couple extra memory cards in mine.

    If you're after a sling, the Thinktank Turnstyle series is worth a look (I own the 5 for my EM-5)

    I have the Chrome sling and it will fit what you listed without a problem.

    This is what I fit in mine.
    • OM-D EM-5 with RRS plate/grip
    • PL 25mm attached to the camera
    • 2 Cactus V units with a stand on one
    • FL-600R
    • FL-300R
    • Clip on flash
    • Oly 12mm & hood
    • Oly 45mm and hood
    • Flash cord
    • Extra wasabi battery
    • Wallet/phone/

    Sometimes adding
    • Diffuser for the FL-600R
    • Wasabi charger
    • 1 more additional lens (usually 12-50mm)

    A friend is currently borrowing my camera and this bag but I can get pictures of all my stuff in it when he gets back if it helps you.

    Actually, I ordered one yesterday afternoon, so we should be good. I'll post a pic for others to see. If you want to post a shot for others' benefit, I'm sure it would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    And the answer is a resounding "barely". It's definitely not going to work for every situation, but I think it's a keeper.

    Thanks for this. I'll post up some pics of the Thinktank Turnstyle 5 for comparison, as there is little content of that here too.

    I totally listed all that with the Chrome Niko Messenger in mind, not the Sling.
    1000 apologies.

    I have the Sling as well but there's no reason to post a picture because it's exactly like Heavy Doody's pic.
