Since I've received some off-list email requesting clarification, the 
PeeWee will hold two M bodies with short lenses, three additional 
lenses, flash, film, light meter, table-top tripod and still have 
significant room left over for accessories.

So, even though it is "small" as a messenger bag, it is not *that* small 
as a camera bag. We probably couldn't lift the *big* messenger bags if 
they were loaded with camera gear. :-)
