    After reading through a lot of threads it seems that the F5XB is probably going to be closest to what I want but figured I would ask anyway.

    I'd like to find a small bag to fit only the EM5 with a prime lens, and an extra battery. Prefer a flap with no zipper, and a color other than black ie something like the Domke with less of a camera bag "look."

    Anything come to mind? Thanks

    Two easy options:
    Domke F5XA - it has the a flap but does also have the zipper
    Domke F-9 - flap and no zipper

    Think Tank mirrorless mover 10 might be the smallest to fit your kit. However, it's a zippered design.

    I think "small with a flap" will look like a camera bag. The Domkes are what I have precisely because they look less like a camera bag than many others. You can remove the Domke label if you carefully cut the stitches. It doesn't look great, because it leaves the thread wholes behind, but it really gets the bag away from the "camera bag look"

    Something like this (found from Google search. Not my image)

    Take a look at the Billingham Hadley Digital. Opens quickly, no zips, holds any mft body with lens, and a few extras (battery, cards, cloths, lens pen ...). May hold a second small lens. I like mine a lot: well made, easy to use.

    The mm5 might work, depending upon the lens size.

    Since you're only carrying the camera with one lens, maybe a holster type bag would be sufficient? Sorry, no specific recommendations.
