    I got my bag from B&H so I could use their Canadian customs brokerage, here is the manufacturer's direct link.

    I can fit quite a few things in it:

    OM-D E-M5
    O9-18
    O14-150
    O17/1.8
    PL25
    O45
    extra battery
    extra memory cards
    4-filter pouch
    cleaning cloth

    That's one body, five lenses and a full filters set with room to spare for many other things! I can fit my E-M5 fitted with the 14-150 zoom facing down. If I didn't have all of my lenses with me, I can curl up my Gorillapod Hyrbid into one of the sections.

    This bag also fits in my medium sized day pack. If I feel like carrying more gear I can bundle them up.

    Here are some photos.

    NICE!

    You're the only other person I've encountered that also owns a Ona bag! :2thumbs:

    I have a Union Street Messenger in gray:

    6095597082_9accbaa126_z.

    I've had it for well over a year (could use a wax coat), and it's held up amazingly well- the aged wax cotton looks great too. Although they're expensive, it's the sort of bag after handling and using that makes you easily see where that money went. Handmade goodness.

    I usually don't bring everything so hopefully that offsets it. I use the Lumix pouches as a separation mechanism in the big section for lenses.

    Material feels like high quality waxed canvas.

    That's how the girlfriend described it.

    I have this bag for my DSLR and love it. A bit big for the micro 4/3 though :/

    AH yeah, it is a little more sized for APS-C sized cameras, although for me it worked well. It's my everyday carry bag, so I often carry an e-reader, some not pads, pens, my lunch, and a camera + 5 lenses. IT fit the bill for a "office camera bag" for me. The one that Dav has is a pretty nice size for camera only.
