You can have too many lenses ... but never enough.

For a little while now, I have struggled with with which lenses to leave behind - each has tremendous appeal.

So now I carry one on the camera. That's it.

I bring all 3 leica lenses for M or NEX shooting
28, 50, 90 (on the NEX they translate to 42, 75, 135.)

The 28 spends the most time in the bag. The 50 spends the most time attached.

The Nikon bag is quite a bit bigger and heavier.

For travel in cities I stick to 21, 35, 90. If I'm going somewhere out of a city I'm happy to take more focal lengths always trying to include a 135 perhaps replacing the 35 with a 50. Ultimately it's allways a p.i.t.a. trying to decide what I want when traveling, but one lens one camera is an easy solution.

Long story. I got back into Leica by finding treasure in a dying camera store: M6, 15mm Voigtlander; 21mm Elmarit; 35, 50, and 90 Summicrons; and 135 Elmarit. I bought the lot for much less than they were worth then traded the M6, the 21, and the 90 for a very nice M8. Since that transaction I've bought a 75mm Summarit. So I have five lenses. I use all of them but find myself gravitating to the 50, even with the M8's crop factor.

2,8/6.3
35CV
50Lux-a
50Lux LTM
Summitar
90EM
90E
13,5H

It depends but usually I go for as few as possible which usually means 50a and the 90EM or - mostly - only the/a 50.

Hello Everybody,

Camera & 1st lens w/ rigid lens hood can vary. 2d lens is a small, sturdy, table tripod w/ a large ball head & a cable release. This can often be more useful than having 2 other additional lenses. New capabilities coupled w/ a new perspective.

Best Regards,

Michael

I usually just store stuff in my bag and rarely carry it out to shoot.. I have 4 in the bag, would be more but that's all I own. Headed out to shoot I usually take 1 attached and another on my belt in a LenZpocket case.

In my opinion, the OP should travel with all three lenses. Three small lenses is not a whole lot to be carrying around.

I usually carry only the M8 and a 28 Summicron, but if I were to go for a trip with the M8 only, then I'd take my only other lens, a Wollensak 90/4.5.

Usually one or two more than I need

I now carry my camera and have a seperate tiny Lowepro compact camera bag which has just enough room for 3 lenses.

There then ensues half an hour of dithering trying to decide which ones to take......

and I still end up not using all of them.....

My set up too. I'm happy to leave 1 or 2 lenses behind and shoot with any 1 or 2 of the others. I might get a 4th (75 or 90 obviously) but I am unsure whether to or which to think about. 3 is probably enough..... maybe.

Default AW: how many lens in your bag?

In my "Leica-bag" I have

Leica IIIa syn
Zorki-4
Jupiter-12 2.8/35
Jupiter-8 2/50
Leica Summitar 2/5cm
Leica Elmar 4/90
Leica Digilux 2
Leica C2


In my "NEX-bag" I have about the same number of items.

And when I take a DSLR, it depends on what I plan to do.

My packing plan usually looks like this:

Stroll + Holiday trip = 1 lens
Small reportage = Two lenses
Large reportage = Three lenses

In other words I always try to bring as few lenses as possible unless I am getting paid or working on a specific project.

One less than I need. Or at least that is what I tell SWMBO.
