Shimoda Medium DSLR core unit with 16-35, 24-70, 100-400 GM lenses

I wanted to share my experience with Shimoda's medium DSLR core unit and Sony GM lens: 16-35mm GM, 24-70 GM, and 100-400 GM. As far as I've tried many different orientations, they don't quite fit into this core unit if 24-70 GM is mounted on Sony A7R-III.

24-70 GM + A7R-III is just too long to fit perpendicular to 100-400 GM so I'm forced to orient it parallel to 100-400 GM. But then there isn't enough space left to fit 16-35 GM anywhere even though there is a lot of empty spaces left.

I'm ordering their large DSLR core unit now. If you have a similar set of lenses and thinking of buying a shimoda bag, you may also want to get a large DSLR core unit instead of medium DSLR core unit. Otherwise, I love Action X 50L. It's one of the most comfortable backpacks I've ever tried on. I can't wait to go on a hike with this bag.

I wonder if the rumored new version of 24-70 GM will be any smaller compared to the current 24-70 GM. If it's similar to the size of 16-35 GM, it would probably fit since if Sony A7R-III is attached on 16-35 GM, they all fit especially if lens hoods are removed.
