I have both the Think Tank Retro 5 and Domke F5X, both are great, Retro 5 holds more and interior organization is more flexible. Domke is lighter and a lot less expensive.

Semi-hijack here, I've stolen a Leica idea by gluing m4/3 rear caps together to make a stackable cap. M4/3 lenses, expecially primes, are small/short, and most of the bags available are considerably taller. My Retro 5 takes my GH2 or GF3 w/lens in the center slot, and I can easily fit 2 lenses back-to-back in each side slot. The advantage of the stack caps is it keeps each lens separated without the need for an additional divider between them. You have to be a little more cautious when grabbing lenses since you're always grabbing two instead of one, but I haven't dropped anything yet.

Maybe pix later when I'm back home...
