Doug, I use the Domke F-6 bag to carry 1 M-6 body (1 body is around my neck at all times with 35 mm f2.0), 21 mm + VF, 50 mm f2.0, 90 mm f2.8 (skinny), handheld incident meter, Leitz table top tripod, cleaning stuff plus some extra film etc. and I still have room for more if I choose to carry it. The bag is small, carries well on the shoulder and is small enough that you are not tempted to leave it behind in a hotel room etc. If I am traveling I do not wish to carry more as it then becomes more work and less fun, which is the name of the game. The bag does not offer a lot of weather protection ( rain, sand etc. can get into a closed top) but it is very easy to get to the goodies if you are on the run and I find I use it that way most of the time - on the run. The top can be secured by two straps and can be opened with one hand if the need arises. I might look at the new 135 mm when it arrives and there would be room in the bag as it now sits. I don't know however, if I want to carry any more on my shoulder. Like I said, if it gets too heavy you will leave it at home, and then, why do you have it in the first place. Hope this helps.
