dcm and NorbR: Thanks for your insightful presentation over this lens.

Recently, the copies separated from the M2 kits in Asia are sold a little cheaper on Ebay. I'm still waiting to pick one when it's  a steal!

A question, will this (on M) fit in the Dashpoint-30 case? If not, do you any comparable bag?

Nope.  It's maybe 1/2" too short.

I outgrew the DashPoint and decided the pouch approach didn't work as well for me.  My primary carry options these days are discussed in other threads:  1) a Nanuk 915 for travel and storage,  2) a ThinkTank Mirrorless Mover 20 when out and about, and 3) a custom aluminum tube and Peak Design Capture Pro for hiking/backpacking.

Thanks dcm.
It seems I have to stick with my Lowpro Event 100 if I add the 55-200 to my kit. I may get Dash-point-10 for the pocket-able prime setup.

The Dashpoints are a snug fit and don't hold much else.  If I was looking for a bag to go on my belt today and handle the M and any of its zooms I might try the Think Tank Digital Holster 5.  It will carry an extra battery and SD card quite easily.  And may have a little room to grow should a larger M body or lens appear.

Thanks again. I agree it's a good option; specifically, for the case the camera is set with one zoom for hiking.
