    Looked through this thread....looking for a minimalist belt bag to hold my Oly E-PM1 + 14-42 lens and space for flash, extra battery. Top load, don't like velcro. I think I want it to be more rectangular. Haven't found anything I really like. Suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Hi Tom & Welcome!

    Check out the Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 5 or 10; both have a sturdy belt loop on the back, and the straps are removable.

    I have the MM10; 2 batteries can fit in one side pocket, and I keep the 9mm BCL in the other side.
    The flash would be better protected in the front pocket.

    Ordered the Camslinger 160 from B&H. They had it for $49 with expedited free shipping. Amazon was almost $80. Must have been a Black Friday thing.

    I thought about the 105, but it has no room for expansion. I'll follow up here once I get it.

    I own and use the Camslinger 160 - very useful, and surprisingly roomy. Very good choice for the PENs, and even the GX7 (and the GF/GM lines).

    Got the Camslinger 160 yesterday. I like the design in general, but the ability to adjust with velcro takes up quite a bit of potential bag space. Cosyspeed is crowdfunding a new version called the Streetomatic which is slightly larger with a simpler clasp and accessory pockets on either side (one intended for a phone). Also comes with a rain cover and 3 colors ; khaki, blue, black.

    Cost is $60 with shipping, which is slightly more than the Camslinger 160. I think I'll return the 160 and order the Streetomatic.

    Just ordered the Streetomatic. In the Phoblographer review on the Indiegogo page, there is a link to a page that will add a free lens bag to the order.

    for my Epm-2 and 20mm (and I can fit a 12-32 placed carefully in there too) along with 2 spare batteries, I use a Crumpler Pleasure Dome (small, I believe).
