Good quality but too tight

This bag is very well made and can be used either on the belt or with the shoulder strap. The E-PL2 fits with a little room to spare on the sides, (So it should fit even with the electronic viewfinder attached) but it's a very tight fit with the 14-42mm lens attached. If you keep a filter on your lens as I do, it simply wont fit. Of course, you can carry the filter separately in the mesh pocket inside the top flap of the case, but putting anything in the front pocket reduces the bag interior even more. Therefore, it's really only suitable for carrying the camera with the pancake lens attached.
In summary, the bag is well made but poorly designed.
