I have no doubt that the 135 Apo Telyt outperforms the 180 Elmarit R, but so does the new
90. I am one of those neurotic people who always has to have the entire outfit with me when
I go out with my M bag. Invariably I find that if I leave a lens at home, I will come
across  a situation where I need precisely that lens. So, my rule is that my entire M
system has to fit into my Billingham 225 bag.
