I have the 250 aw and love it for when I don't need my Lowepro Protactic 450 aw. It's great for a grab and go bag but not a lot of room for extras. I suggest waiting for the 250 to be on sale. There are NO FLAWS in this bag whatsoever! You need to learn how sling bags work and how to open them! User error and design flaws are two separate things!

I wish I could wear it over my left shoulder... But then it'd be in the front!

Do not buy this because it has a serious design flaw. I own this abut my two glasses fell right on the concrete and broke my heart. The flaw is the way open you the backpack for the camera. It opens from the side and you have to make sure it doesn't tilt to the ground while you doing that otherwise, the lens will fall to the ground.
That's not a design flaw. Most of Lowepro's "sling" line are meant to swing around to your front, so you can unzip and pull your gear out with a stable platform below you. I've been using a version of this for my SLR for some time now and haven't ever had issues.

As long as you know how it's supposed to work, you won't have issues with this backpack. And I swear by Lowepro. Every bag I've gotten from them, so far, has weathered daily use with very few to no issues.

This is one of the packs in their Darwinism line...

This is a great backpack. I used this on a 10 day off road camping trip through the mountains, it held up great. I was able to hold:
- Cabon dslr
- Extra lens
- Extra camera batteries
- Mavic pro
- Mavic controller
- 2 extra mavic batteries
- All cables and accessories for mavic

For the size and profile of this bag you can fit an incredible amount inside.

Really love the way this bag handles, but unfortunately it won't handle my 70-200 f/2.8 unless I put it in the top compartment by itself. That solution honestly worked pretty well for me for 3 months of traveling, but definitely wasn't ideal. For a slightly smaller set of lenses, though, this thing is fantastic to travel with.

Edit: Actually I have the 250, so I guess an even smaller kit would be in order. The 250 fits with a 24-70 f/2.8E mounted perfectly.

I guess the entire point of a sling bag is completely lost on you...

Is this bag overkill for m43 and 2-3 lens of prime and zoom?

I went to a camera store and tried out darn near all their backpacks. I swear finding a backpack you prefer is harder than on knowing which lens you want. I would suggest trying then in person if you are close to any type of camera retail store. I personally couldn't stand the single strap bag.
