Bag for 645D and lens storage

Hi, New here... Looks like a great community! I am here because I have a 645D with a single lens. I plan to buy one or two more lenses. What would you recommend as far as cases to store this gear? Given it's cost I'm a little more anxious than usual. Thanks!

PS I will go introduce myself now.

The Domke F6 is a great shoulder bag for a small medium format kit.

I have a ThinkTank Retrospective 12 messenger-style bag which holds my perfect P645D walk-around kit: a 25mm, a 120mm macro, and the 150-300mm ED. I tend to switch to 400ASA for the 150-300mm, if time allows.

It took me quite a while to feel comfortable with this set-up because of its prohibitive price - inexpensive compared to the other medium format companies, but still expensive.

During film days, I used a 645nii with the 35mm FA, the 45mm FA, the 150mm FA, and the 300mm f/4. For macro, I'd use the extension rings. The 45mm was a great lens on film, but it just doesn't hold up on the 645D.

However, the 645D is quite heavy and so is the 25mm lens, when compared to the 645nii set-up. Thus, the 120mm nicely doubles up as a macro and a portrait lens, and I don't mind its sharpness either. The 150-300mm is a remarkably good match for this set-up as it weighes only 2/3 of the 300mm/4 and is more versatile because of the added zoom range. It is quite sharp already at f/5.6 and the 645D is easily set to ASA400 or even 800 without much loss of quality.
