Bill Sprague looking for case for Leica 100-400mm and Lumix body
I’ve followed your success with the GX8/100-400 and, consequently, now have one. Thank you for the “push”! (grinning here!)
I am trying to locate a case. I would prefer a “holster” style that would hold the camera with lens attached, including the lens hood. An example might be the “Lowepro Toploader Pro 75 AW II”.

Unfortunately, all the “holsters” I’ve looked at are built to hold DSLR sized bodies. Do you have or have seen a holster bag sized for smaller mirrorless M4/3 cameras?
Bill, I’m unaware of a specific holder you refer to. I do know that Lowepro is building some MFT cases and bags but I see nothing listed specifically for MFT in the holster design you’re interested in. However, the photo I’ve included here show’s a Nikon body with the 80-200mm lens as an example of what the Lowepro Toploader Pro 75 AW II will hold and the Leica 100-400mm with a Lumix body would take up about the same amount of room. I would think this case would work extremely well even though it wasn’t designed for MFT.
I’m hopeful bag manufacturers will see the need to give us even more options in the near future. Lowepro does have many more options than others however and here’s a link to their web pages for mirrorless camera bags.. http://store.lowepro.com/shop/mirrorless
