If so, is it because >> you want to have more than 1 lens handy, or more than 1 type of film handy, >> or just generally want a backup? 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.
