I took a Sony DSC-R1, a Ricoh GR Digital with the 21mm extension, and  
my M4-2 with 4 lenses (a 2/50, a 1.5/50 a 2.5/35 and a 4/90).
Never used the M4-2: it was my first 'official' job, and I didn't  
want to take the risk of measuring wrong and missing what I had to  
shoot. Chickened out, so to speak.
I worked most with the Sony (great lens), which is a tad too slow for  
RAW reporting, fill flashed a lot (a lot of contrasty situations, no  
time for reflection screens and I had to do everything myself), and  
switched 2 always full 2 gig CF cards constantly into a Vosonic.
Loading the Vosonic is OK, but downloading from it into my Powerbook  
at night took literally hours, so I wouldn't recommend it.
In small spaces I used the Ricoh with attached VF, which simply is  
There rest is homework: selecting, PSing etc.

Thanks for looking, Michiel.
