I've got an artist and artisan strap strap for my a7r that I wear across the chest. I'm really looking for a bag though so that I can put the camera away when not in use. I'd like the camera on me at all times but not necessarily out at all times.

To each his own I guess. To me the whole purpose of having the camera on me all the time is to have it ready when a moment pops up, I don't even use lens caps when I'm out and about with my camera.

It rains a lot in scotland, I also have a one year old running about, I just like to be able to put the camera away in a bag if I have to when dealing with other stuff going on. I may give the strap only option a go though and see how I get on

Eddie, this is what I use for my Sony gear. It's a bit larger than what you're looking for. I can carry my a7r camera with one lens mounted and two more inside as well as spare batteries, cards etc. but it can be worn around the waist either off to the side or in back so that it's hands free and very unobtrusive. By sliding the bag around to the front, it makes it pretty easy to access your other lenses and to change them out.

I use a lowepro EX160 on occasion. it can fit up to 3 small lenses and the a7r. I use it along with a larger belt I have (something like a construction belt would be great), and acts as a waist pack. Great for the amusement park, birthday parties, ect. Really like the idea of an ultrasmall non intrusive pack, and this gives me that. I do have the photorunner 100 as well, but it's too big, and the size is kinda awkward for a belt system.

the toploader gene linked would certainly be good as well, and could be used with a belt. The bag I use is similar to the edit 110 seen here: http://store.lowepro.c​om/shop/mirrorless/edi​t-110 (external link)

I do have a thinktank bag, the retro 10, but it's way too big for what you're looking for. I kinda like the bag I have. It's small enough that I can use 1 camera and 1 lens, or I can stuff it with 3 and still be ok (but the front lens will be unprotected in that expanding pocket. Comfortably fits two small primes.

Thanks Charlie, the smaller bag there looks similar sized to my retro 5 and shibata. Hopefully the domke I have ordered will be as small as I'm hoping it is

Decisions decisions... I'm thinking of expanding the role of A7R and/or even possibly acquiring the A7S -- point being I'm impressed with the A7 series performance and hooked on their compactness. I do realize that 5DIII's AF is still above A7 and 5DIII will continue to be my go to camera.

That being said, what should my first E-mount general purpose lens be? By expanded role of A7, I mean something I could carry with me to work whenever I feel like it or to pick it up when my cats are being adorable; just some random street shots or something out of everyday life.

I have three candidates:
Sony 55mm F1.8 Sonnar T* FE ZA
Sony 16-35mm Vario-Tessar T FE F4 ZA OSS
Zeiss Loxia 50mm f/2 Planar T*

Any thoughts, abusive comments:p appreciated...

if you can wait, there's a new mirrorless coming out from sony, the a9 series camera. not much known about it but it sure gave me a morning glory. :P

aside that.. the 35mm makes a good walk around, but the 55 1.8 is probably the lens for you if you want cat shots. 24-70 is already plenty wide to me, 16-35 would be over kill but works for landscapes and tight areas.

Late to the game but you'll have no regrets with Domke. I'm a Think Tank and Tenba fan. In fact, I find some of Temba products to be more thoughtful than Think Tank these days. They're all great camera carriers, nevertheless. By the way, I'm excited that Tenba listened and now they have issued DNA13 messenger bag to slot itself between DNA 11 (was great when I was carrying 11" MBA but became too small when I upgraded to MBP13 w/ Retina Disp) and DNA15 (too big for everyday use).

I just cant see any reason why to pick up the loxia 50 over the ze 55. the ze55 is sharp, can AF or even MF very well, wider aperture.... pretty much no reason for that one. I would pick whatever you were comfortable with your DSLR. I shot a 6D + 50, and transitioned to an A7r + 50.

I only used the ZE55 for a few days, and not sure how anyone else uses the AF, but I generally center point, focus recompose, or some times wide area + facial recognition. If you're ok with vintage manual lenses, the sky is the limit. Dirt cheap experiments can be lots of fun....

I got a little carried away:
