Each system is a little different when it comes to size. I have purchased well over 75 bags in my life as a photographer. One brand that has stood the test of time is Thinktank. I have tried almost every brand available and I always find myself coming back to Thinktank. Here are my 2 favorite bags to house my Olympus Gear.
I want to start off by saying, perception is not reality. When I first saw this bag I thought I was going to absolutely hate it. I didn’t think it would have enough space for my gear and other things I travel with. I was wrong! This bag is my personal camera bag that I use when I am traveling or going out to shoot personally.
The one thing that I LOVE about this bag the fact that it can hold a penny board.

When I travel I always bring a penny board with me to get around the airport and have a mode of transportation when I get to my destination. The second thing I love about this bag is how much gear it actually holds. Most of the time I can fit everything I need in this bag for a day of shooting as well as my laptop and other accessories.

The third thing I love about this bag is the fact that it has a luggage strap so it can stay on my carry on or other roller bags. This is great when you are trying to make your gate on time or are checking into your hotel and don’t want to lose track of your bags.

On wedding day or for portraits this is my go to bag. Unlike the perception when this bag opens you can see all of the gear and it’s easy to get gear in and out. This bag has a ton of space for all of your gear. Here is what I carry on the wedding day:
Em1-MK2, PEN-F, 7-14mm, 12-40mm, 12-100mm, 17mm, 25mm,75mm,40-150mm, chargers for both cameras, batteries for both cameras, memory card pouch, TT350O.
Like the perception bag, this bag does not scream camera bag. It looks like a run of the mill backpack which is great when you travel.
