Bag recommendations MX and three lenses.

I am in the market for a bag that will hold my MX and 3 lenses; M28/2.8, M50/1.4 and M85/2. I do a fair amount if street photography, any suggestions for a durable and unobtrusive bag?

Check out the Lowpro passport sling. It will fit what you want.

I like the LowePro Nova 2, and have three of them. They will easily carry a pair of medium telephotos (200, 135) in the outer compartments with a wide angle in the center, allowing the body with a 50 attached to rest on top of all that. The front pouch is large enough to hold some filters and film. I suppose a drawback for street work could be that these are shoulder bags. See for yourself - here's some examples from ebay:

I use a small bag from Domke for my Leica camera and Pentax MX/LX/ME - these bags are well made and unobtrusive.These bags can be difficult to find but the quality of construction make it absolutely worth it.

I agree for the Domke bags. I have one that holds 2 cameras, 2 lenses, and a bunch of usual accessories.
Great stuff and good build.

For small kit like this you can get any bag you like.

Doesn't need to be even of a photographic type brand (enabling full stealth ninja mode for street work) and buy Domke insert to suit.

I use the Tenba large messenger bag when I travel. It has lots of space and room for a laptop/travel documents or books.

It comes in seven colours!

I use my Roots Raiders Bag (I have laptop version so it's padded). Yeah, I know that it's not a camera bag, but I generally keep my 50mm on my camera and my 28mm and 135mm wrapped together in a padded wrap with all of the filters that I generally use, so it's too easy.
