A new line of camera bags called Kipling is being distributed in the US.  I
think Tiffen distributes them, and they are made in Belgium.  There is one model
(don't know the number) that is small and seems made to fit an M.  I bought
one.  About fifty bucks.  It will hold an M body, lens attached, two lenses on
side pockets, SF 20, and film.  Has a big front flap with zippers on each side,
and velcro.  Comes in a variety of tacky colors if you are so inclined.  It is
about the size of a medium ladies' purse.  In fact, it looks like a ladies
purse.  Despite this the utility for using with an M was overwhelming and I
decided that if people thought I was carrying a pocketbook then that was their
problem and bought it anyway. :-)
