I agree with the above and that is the approach I usually take. Four of the 5
working days I carry my Domke 803 with the M system with me, and most days I use
the Ms. I try to integrate the Ms into my daily life. But sometimes even this
modest-sized outfit is too much. When I go on a business trip I do not want to
check any luggage, and if I have to take along papers, computer etc., then the
camera that goes with me has to fit in the pocket of a suit jacket. And an M6
simply does not fit there. So on those occasions I take my Ricoh GR1 which is not
much bigger than a pack of cigarettes.
