I'd tend to go with a wider, shorter bag than either, which is probably why I wound up using a purse. :)

The Express 5 would be more suited to a :43: outfit, IMO. The Express 7 is way too large!

As I mentioned in the other thread, I checked out the Express 7 and 5 at SEARS. They ran out of the 6, so I'd have to go to another SEARS.

Express 7 is definitely too large, but the 5 is pretty darn snug. You probably can get away carrying a prime lens and a battery inside, but not much else.

Nevermind. Both the Express 5 and 6 feels too thick. The 6 actually feels a bit bulky. The compartments are hard to adjust and optimize for a m4/3 camera. What's worse, the design of the clip on the flap makes it hard to close with one hand because you have to line up both parts to the center guide. Horrible design!

Check out the Tamrac Velocity series.
I use a #4 with the GF1 w/20. I also have the 14-45 or 9-18 and my J8.
Plus a few batteries etc....
Nice sling bag that also works as a waist pack.

I use a Tamrac Aero 45, and it holds my E-P1, the kit zoom, the 20 mm pancake (with a hood), the 40 mm Hexanon (with its adapter), the 135 mm Hexanon, and big screw-on hood for the two Hexanons. It's cheap, it holds everything that I'd ever want while out shooting, and it still feels nice and light, even with all of that glass in there.

The thing is, the Aero looks too much like a camera bag. I'm trying to get something that doesn't.

I ordered the Tamrac 6x for my E-PL1, but the interior of the bag is still too small and cramped. I was trying to find a bag, where I can grab the camera quickly out of the bag. The 6x is too small, and the E-PL1 barely fits. VF-2 installed on camera won't fit at all. My 40-150mm with m4/3 adapter fits too snug in the side pocket. It is tough to get anything out of this bag. It is very disappointing, because the outside area of the bag is larger than my Olympus mini-backpack. Yet the mini-backpack has a little more room in it, and is easier to get camera out. I thought about getting Tamrac 7x, but the exterior dimensions are too large for what I'm looking for.
