I purchased M equipment to reduce weight but am finding it heavy.
I currently carry around whilist travelling
M6 Body - Colour Slide
M6 Body - B & W
90m f2.8
35Asp f2
21Asp F 2.8
50 m f2
Sf20 Flash
Leica Polarizer
Gitzo table tripod

Weight 6Kg +

The above I currently carry in a Lowpro Street and Field AW100.
My criteria was up until now.
B & W film switchable
Maximum image quality
Compact Water proof bag and suitable for the tropics.
Does anybody have any advise.

Dear Darrell, your equipment really does look very heavy. I think you've
got too much stuff.
I have two olympus moooos I'd be happy to swap for your kit which should
bring the weight down nicely while keeping the slide/bw flexibility you
want. You can carry one in each pocket.
