I completely disagree with those who think that 90 or 135mm are for SLR.  I
don't use lenses longer than 135. So, in an small bag, I carry 2 bodies (B&W
and Color) and 21, 35, 50, 90 (and  I hope a 135mm in the future).
Yes, I could carry 4 bodies... 2 RF (B&W and color films) with 21, 35 and 50
lenses and 2 SLR (B&W and color films) with 90,135,200 and 400 lenses.
Sorry but my back does not permit that,
