    I'm looking for the smallest bag for a Panasonic GM5 + kit lens. My Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 5 is too big.

    Thx for any suggestions.

    you may also check the lowepro camera puches e.g. dashpoint series, etc. as they come in various sizes. :)

    Like Turbofrog, I have a NatGeo pouch: Africa series A1212. Roughly same size. Originally bought it for my X100, but GM5 and 12-32 fits easily. Front pocket for extra battery and card. Good quality.

    Anything sold as a camera bag will have a bunch of padding, which makes the bag bigger and which you probably do not need. Check out the "tactical" bags and pouches. They are typically quite heavy nylon, enough that I typically will put a layer of closed-cell foam in the bottom of the bag and call it good. Several of the clips, like the Maxpedition TacTie, sold to attach the pouches to PALS/MOLLE type webbing can also be used as belt loops.
    LA Police Gear has a good selection though I find their web site a little hard to navigate. Try they have all the name brands plus some cheaper house-brand and Condor products. I have found both of those to be decent quality for the money.

    Why a bag? How about an Op-Tech camera pouch? They wrap around your camera and lens and provide protection from bumps and weather.

    I used one for my Olympus PL5 and clipped it to the strap so when I unwrapped it, I just let it dangle.

    Domke F5c? or something like that is small but still maybe too big for what you want, Lowepro Terracline 50 is nice and small I can fit an EPM2 with Panasonic 12-32 in there quite well. The Lowepro is however discontinued so you may have to search for one, I have considered getting a couple more as useful pouches for odd bits in non camera bags.
