I just bought a m4/3 camera and now I have two lens. They both come with a pouch but the pouch are way too big.

Lens one is leica 15mm which mesure 58mm diameter x 35mm length
Lens two is a panasonic 42.5mm which mesure 55mm diameter x 50mm length

All I find seem a bit too big for them. (I know what a pain :ROFLMAO:!)

Are you putting the lenses in pouches into a camera bag? I don't think I have ever used lens pouches or cases in my life, usually just leave lens cases or pouches in the box if they happen to come with. Have you tried pouches from other equipment? I found a nice soft pouch in the box from some wireless headphones I bought ages back, never even noticed it when I bought them! Just happened to be looking for something else [cable] - and I did think, this would be perfect for a lens, maybe I'll do just that!

How about something like these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/AOLVO-Draw...6W31MKYYFQC&psc=1&refRID=JMEADKKNZ6W31MKYYFQC

Yes I use the pouch inside my camera bag.
It's more for the durt and dust not really for the bumps.

I use something like your link at the moment. This one exactly which is really nice but still it could nearly be half the size.

But i really like that it's just really soft with a little draw string not like these which are full of scratchy bit and buckles on the outside.

Just a matter of finding the right size then I guess. I get the idea, for me it's too much faffing about though, I like to just open my bag and have the lenses at the ready. I throw a bunch of silica gel packs into every bag I have and replace them whenever I get some new ones, this helps fight against moisture/condensation. There shouldn't be any grit or dirt in your bag really

I've seen sunglasses soft pouches, not sure if they fit. Failing that a bit of felt and you could make one in half hour.
They would be big enough for the 15mm OP mentions, I had this lens and it is teensy. Good suggestion, like I mentioned I found one in a box for headphones I'd purchased ages back [I always keep the boxes, have a specific cupboard full of them!] Now, they are pretty large 'cans' - so the pouch was nicely sized, just threw my 55-250 lens into it tonight after seeing this thread and it fits with plenty of room :D so it'll depend on what the pouch was intended for. But yup, if you keep those boxes from gear purchases, have a look, might be one in there.

Have a look at the chart here and work out what size you need https://www.google.co.uk/search?ei=.....0.0..0.0.0.......0......gws-wiz.TJptE_L8Ldg
I recently sold all my lens pouches on here https://www.talkphotography.co.uk/threads/lowepro-lens-cases.696882/
Pretty sure the Panasonic 15mm fitted in the 1S
