The bag in your pics look beautiful!

I've got the Crumpler 5500 Cupcake for the OM-D/9-18/45mm/75mm + batterycharger/batteries/etc. Feels good , and even space left.

Maybe check their website. I pressume you're looking for someting like Zelenpol or Gariz?

Thanks for the info the Contax was a brilliant design with easy access to additional lens at the bottom. I waited for ever for someone to come out with a digital back for the G2 but it never happened. The Zeiss Glass was remarkable.

Leather has many attractive qualities, but I can't help thinking that it's not the best material for a camera bag.

While it can be very water resistant, leather can also absorb moisture and be susceptible to mould. It's also relatively heavy.

Concerning the Contax G2 : I feel your pain, I have been waiting for a Contax G digital back for several years.. I was so happy to get an adapter plus an E-P1 when they appeared in 2009. Yet, it is not the same as using those beautiful lenses on a full frame. Plus out of my 5 Contax G lenses, I can only use two. Still the 45mm is an incredible lens. Only the 75mm is able to deliver the same sharpness.

I do still have the Lowepro bag I was using for the Contax G2, that one. Although mine had three compartments and the exterior didn't have that white band with the logo.

But I've got too many lenses by now and I'm rather using a Crumpler Messenger bag.

By the way, are you using your Zeiss G lenses with mft cameras ?

I wish,  sold my G1 G2 the works and went with Olympus E1 the size almost killed me. But I think like you the EM5 and the new lens are a match for Contax.--
