GEt a case with lots of small compartments, such as the Benser cases or
second-hand Leica cases (at some of mail order used camera dealer--see the
Shutterbug, e.g. Don Chatterton, Tillis Brothers). I have a somewhat
similar case that holds my M2 vertically with 50mm, has two homemade
leather compartments at the other end for the 35mm and 90mm, a 19mm on the
floor of the case, plus a small flash and a camera clamp. The case is
about 10x7x7.
