    I am looking for a small bag that will hold a E-M5 MKII with the full grip attached and a small prime on camera. I would also like to include a small zoom as well. Will the Bowery be able to do this?
    What do you all carry in your Bowery?
    I would get a Domke F-5XB if there was not a zipper top.

    Not sure if your gear will fit, but I can tell the F-5XB and Bowery have almost the same interior dimensions. The Think Tank Retro 5 would probably work as well.

    Do you know if the Retro 5 has a long enough strap to wear it cross body? Is the strap removable?

    Not removable, but yes I would think more than long enough.

    In my Bowery: EM5ii with 12-40mm, Pan 45-175mm, some filters in the front pockets, and a tight squeeze but the Oly flash that came with the EM5ii.

    EDIT: no grip on mine.

    Tenba DNA series and Domke F-8 have removable straps.

    I have a Tenba DNA 11. I found that I don't like working out of it. Stacked gear is a pain to get to. The 8 may be an option if I don't stack stuff.

    This is a great little bag at a great price. I have one and it is my camera and two-prime bag. Will hold a 12-40 Pro, a 40-150r, O60 on the big end. When I'm not packing a big/long lens, or a lot of accessories, this is what I grab - small, light, big enough. Price is hard to beat. Cane probably find it for even less on eBay.

    The more I research the more the Bowery seems to be the one.....
    I guess I need to know if the Bowery will allow the grip and my 25 or 45 to be on camera and still be able to put my 40-150 r in the other compartment. I am sure I could fit my cell phone and some filters in the front pockets.

    I have the DNA 8 and think it would fine for your needs. I can fit an EM1 with the 12-40 Pro mounted in the middle, with a 40-150 R on one side, and a 17 f1.8 with hood or 9-18 with hood on the other side. However, I dunno how high the EM5 II with your grip is. The strap is removable, is quite long, and fits me cross body. But, there are less expensive alternatives.
