Lowepro has a new line out which I've just gotten into. Street and Field. (S&F)
The 100 would be the one for you.
I have the 300 so far which fits my entire 2 body, winder, 5 lens Leica M system.
I have a 50 S&F pouch which fits one camera with extra finder and medium size lens.
I put this on a strap or on my new belt. The S&F Deluxe Waistbelt 15.
Makes you feel like stocking shelves in the supermarket, plenty of support.
The belt will also support a large S&F satchel. Leica M stuff is heavy. Small
but dense.
I like some belt support to take the weight off my shoulder.
There is also a  shoulder harness  thing which helps support the belt even more.
All kinds of pouches to put on the belt and harness. Makes you look like a
photographer who means business, a little aggressive perhaps.
I love it!
