Subject: Fw: [Leica] Tardis bag for your M

I'm coincide with Simon about an inexpensive compact case: I saw several 
Domke and others (all very expensive) and yesterday I found and bought an
Lowepro Nova 4 (less than 70.00) enough to accommodate two M6 bodies
with a nocti, my new 90 f/2, an 35 f/1,4, Luna Pro and an SF20 ... The bag 
it's compact and very light.
