That's a nice set of lenses. I own most of them, but I opted for the 20mm instead of the 25.

One disadvantage of internet shopping is it is hard to get a real feel for the size and capacity of a camera bag by just studying the specs. All my local camera stores are long gone. I was thinking of one of the Lowe Pro messenger style bags, but it looks like lenses would have to be stacked on top of each other. The M4/3 lenses are so tiny compared to 35mm versions, that a regular bag designed for 5 35mm primes would be way too big.

The Thinktank restrospective 7 would probably handle this well. I can fit two E-M5 bodies with lenses mounted plus a couple other lenses. 1 body with any lens mounted, it will fit four other lenses plus accessories easily without making them too awkward to grab. I own both the Retrospective 5 & 7. I tend to use the 5 more. Although you might be able to cram everything in it would require a lot of juggling to dig stuff out.

P.S. Does anybody but me find it irritating that the title to this forum is out of alphabetical order in the list of forums.

Nope. It's right between the two big m43s members, Olympus and Panasonic.
