I think I finally have this bag thing figuered out:

For my magazine work, small job; Domke F6 carries 2 Leica Ms with lens
attached, 4 Nikor primes, Nikor SB28, 1 Nikon F3HP w/motor drive over

Magazine work, big job; Domke F2 carries 2 Nikon F3HPs w/motor drive, 5
Nikor primes, SB28, 1 Leica w/lens.

Protest demonstration (such as George Bush inaugration or IMF demo); Domke
F6 carries 4 Leica Ms plus lenses.

Street Photography; Classic M satchel bag carries 2 Leica Ms plus 1
additional lens.

Lighter IS much better.
