Re: A7C and 50GM as an everyday carry?

I use the A7C as my daily carry and have landed on the Peak Design 3l Sling. The bag fits the A7C with up to the Sony Zeiss 50mm f1.4 planar mounted and an additional medium sized lens.

This setup is very minimal and when carrying it around it looks like any other small bag and really don't scream pro photo. It is a snug fit but works fine.

I don't have the 50mm GM but I have the 50mm planar, I believe they are more or less identical in size. For my A7Riii the 3l sling is to small and I have the old 5L bag for that one.

The main reason for getting the A7C for me was the get a less pro looking camera. When paired with the smaller f1.8 lenses it looks like any other consumer camera vs the A7R + a f2.8GM zoom that looks very pro (something I want to avoid when out with the family etc.).

The lenses I find works best with the A7C considering quality and size are the 24GM, 35GM, 55 f1.8 and 85 f1,8 and zooms 17-28mm and 28-75/28-200mm. They all fit as a two lens kit in the Peak Design 3L bag.
