You will definitely get bonus points in the Leica stack if you bring your M8 
and the R8DMR ;-) The Aussie contingent intend to be well represented.
Foreign cameras however are permitted to photograph the stack!
FWIW my Barcelona lenses tend to be 70% 35mm and 30% 50-75mm. I just travel 
with one body. Ill put in the baby Oly that shares the M EVF.
You will need two hands to safely operate the Porron at the LUG dinner
