I usually take at least two, sometimes three.  There are various reasons.  Sometimes I want Kodachrome in one and negative film in another.  Sometimes I need a body for infra-red, which can only be loaded and unloaded in the dark (and I don't usually carry a changing bag with me).  Sometimes I want the .85 for better focussing with a 90mm or 135mm.  Sometimes I just don't want to be changing lenses all the time.

But there are times that I'll have a couple of Rs and one M.  Depends on what I am shooting.
