After picking up my M kit I've almost spent as much "accessorizing" as on the kit itself.  :-* Picked up a clear filter & hood for the 18-55 and a 43-58mm step-up ring to go with a 52-58mm ring and 58mm C-Pol I already had. Also the EF to EF-M mount adapter.

Yesterday I went to a local bricks and mortar store and after some tests picked up the Mirroless Mover 10 as I wanted a bag for the basic kit.

It snugly Fits the M with the 22 attached and the ex90 under the 18-55 with some room to spare in the main compartment with the C-Pol in the lid compartment.


Looks like a great carrying option for the M and accessories.  I have a LowePro Dashport 20 which is perfect for the M with 22mm lens, but there are times I'd like to carry my EF-M 18-55 as well and maybe a speedlite.  This looks like it would be perfect for that.

Yes, it's not so snug to create problems to get the body with pancake lens in and out. The 18-55 with the hood attached is a little tight but that I don't mind.
As others have said I tend to just pocket the body & 22mm so this bag is for when I want the basic kit for some options.
I'm still trying to figure out the best option for me for securing it. I bought a wrist strap (Canon camcorder strap) but it's too long and I had to cut it down for the attachment lug so I'm either using the kit neck strap or a recycled p&s wrist strap for now.

There's always the ER-E1 strap...

It's what I've been using too, saw it first on this thread by you. Thanks for that! The strap is a nice size yet unobtrusive. I don't really use it so much as a wrist strap per se but more like a handle to grab while I walk about. It creates more hand grip area overall (if that makes sense) while maintaining the EOS M's small size.

It also makes it easy to pull the camera out of your coat pocket. (Though that could be a negative if you are in a dodgy area!).

thanks Neuro,

I did see your post and the strap looks nice but for $50 I'd rather spend the money and get the tiny Leica Time strap. Now if we could only convince Luigi to make a half case for the M like he has for the G10 ...

My ER-E1 was under $30. (¥2900) bought on amazon.jp - is it really $50 in the US? Seems a bit steep. Usually stuff over there is cheaper.

It's not available from retailers in North America, has to be bought from HK (e.g., DigitalRev) or the UK.
