Just curious if you're speaking from experience Frank.

In my experience: the beauty of the visoflex in the bag is the weight  
and size of the kit.
Carrying the M8, 28, 50 and Visoflex in a tiny, light bag and knowing  
that I've got the macro covered, feels quite nice. Carrying the DMR/ 
R8, 28, and 60 macro (as a similar kit) is considerably larger and  
heavier; not to mention that I wouldn't have the same speed (the R 28  
2.8, 60 2.8 in contrast to the M 28 2, 50 1.4).

If I know that I'm going out to photograph Macro you're probably  
right: DMR/R8 and 100 apo would be the choice. Yet if I'm moving very  
far from the arsenal and I'm not sure what I'll be photographing out  
there and want to travel light and small - then it's M8 and kit as  
stated above.

Fond regards,
