Are we disusing your back, or what makes more sense photographically?
How did we get from the question of whether a 135 belongs on an M, to
having to carry four cameras around?;-)

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, Rafael
