I have the Fogg Bee and use it a lot   I usually put two M6s in the wide
compartment with their lenses attached (however, when I get where I am
going, the cameras are on my shoulders and the bag is empty!)  The narrow
compartmentment is for other lenses.  It's a handy, small bag, but if I
know I am going into a "questionable" area, I will carry my cameras in a
diaper bag - very cheap and not liable to be stolen!  Tina
