I'm still debating what to use to carry the V1 with 10-30 mounted, and the 30-110 along side, in a small waist/belt pack. I'm thinking strongly about considering the Black Widow carrier and then an even smaller belt pack for the other lens(es). My only concern is how far the 10-30 sticks out and collisions with such on surrounding obstacles. In some cases I could envision taking both the camera and extra lens in opposing pockets of my photo vest.
I've seen a lot of options regarding the possible pouches, but none that I consider perfect. The size of the 10-30 really disqualifies many of what the websites call "point and shoot cases" and even many of the smaller mirrorless camera cases.
So if anyone has further ideas or recommendations, I'm interested.
I bought and am just about to begin experimenting with the ThinkTank Slim Changer. It's a belt pouch, part of their modular system, and comes with three velcro dividers. I've taken one out, and the camera and second lens fit. But that would probably be the limit.

Might also look at the TT Speed Changer. They've changed the design a couple of times, the original did not have the zippered front compartment like it does now. The original version is what I use for the V1 kit, holds V1 w/10-30 attached hood reversed, 30-110, SB-N5, extra battery, remote, card holder, etc. My other Speed Changer, very similar to the current design I use for my M4/3 kit. The zippered front compartment takes away a bit of interior room, so does not work quite as well for the V1 kit. However, looks like the interior dimensions for the Slim and Speed are very close, the depth of 3" being the same for both. Just depends on whether you want the extra room in the zippered compartment for misc items? I've also been happy with Kinesis pouches. HTH
Good evening, Tom, I have tried several carry options, the three lightest being the Think Tank Hubba Hubba Hiney, the TT Bum Bag, and the TT Skin 50. These have all been tested on the TT Thin Skin Belt V2.0. The Skin 50 is the lightest; the TT Hubba Hubba Hiney is the heaviest, but has the most carry options and capacity. The TT Skin 50 will hold the V1 with the 10-30mm zoom in addition to a 30-110mm on the other side of a movable divider. The TT HH Hiney has space for more accessories than the other two options. For most of my bicycle outings, I take the Bum Bag with the V1 and the two zooms. --- Randy ---
