Subject: [Leica] Crumpler "five million dollar home"

I think the five million is JUST right for just photographic stuff. I think
the 6 million would be just right for an M+50, two lenses, and the purse
sorts of things. I would probably zip that latter stuff up in a Duluth
Trading armored wallet
Inside of the bag.

The Crumplers seem to be more efficient than the Domke bags insofar as
getting the camera and accessories packed together instead of flopping

Advantage: Crumpler.

I got the 4 million dollar home and I think it's a little too small. 
:-(  I can fit the M8 and one extra lens but then I can't get in my 
wallet with credit cards, etc.  I was hoping for something that will 
be able to fit both photography and purse.  I guess I'll try for the 
5 or 6 million.  I have a hard time imagining the sizes from the 
descriptions on the website.   I know I could get out a ruler but I 
still have problems visualizing that and the photos on the web seem 
to include a lot more than can actually fit in the bags.  I do like 
the quality and unobtrusive qualities of the bags.
