Nope. I'm exactly the same way. I have a 90mm Summicron that stays home
_all_ the time. I walked by a shop and saw a nice Tele-Elmarit and
considered picking it up, but realized I use the nice Nikkor 85/2.0 when I
need that kind of thing anyway ... so I bought the M2 instead. I hate
changing lenses so now with a M4 and M2 (the M3 is just too much of a pain
to use since it got "fixed", so it is retired) 35 and 50, I'm happy ...
with the F3 for 85/135/200 ... and for those moments I need god's gift to
photographers (AE) ... quite often, actually.
