Yes, likewise, GM1/5 and GF7 tend to be used with 12-32mm or 20mm - they all fit in a belt-mounted small case.

G80 tends to be used with 14-140mm or 8-18mm in a Lowepro 50AW top-loader. Haven't used the 12-60mm for a while.

I have the Toploader 45AW and 50AW. My experience is the 45AW is OK to house GX8 or G7 with either 14-140 or 12-60 f3.5-5.6 mounted and their hood reversed.

The Toploader 50AW can house these with the hood mounted ready to use. I use the smaller CaseLogic DCB306 for that.

But of course the 100-400 is a much bigger lens.

G9 has 100-400mm attached for 99% of usage, combo fits nicely in a 55AW Lowepro top-loader.

When travelling abroad, a distant memory now , I take GF7 and G5 with 12-32/12-60/14-140/80-18 and 20mm, use belt cases for all combos (Lowepro Dashpoint 20 for 12-60/14-140).

I have both the Lowepro Dashpoint 20 and 30: the GM5 with the kit 12-32 or a pancake prime (20 f1.7 or 14 f2.5) fits nicely in the Dashpoint 20.

But the Lowepro Dashpoint 20 is too small to house neither GM5+12-60 f3.5-5.6 nor GM5+14-140 nor GM5+42.5 f1.7. This is why I bought the Dashpoint 30, in which any of these three combos fit nicely, though I need to remove the hoods from 14-140 or 12-60: with the reversed hood it is really too tight.

Only limitation with these tiny Dashpoint bags (I have also the 10 for the pocketable Panasonic LF1) is I need to put elsewhere the spare battery, which is a must with these small bodies.

Anyway, when I go out with two bodies or spare lenses, I use cross body photo bags, for instance Kalahari Kapako K31 or Lowepro Sling III.
