     The weight of these older lenses is such that I hesitate to take more than 
a wide/telephoto walkaround zoom and a telephoto zoom.  When you consider that 
these older lenses can be bought for around $20 and comparable newer lenses are 
close to $1,000, you just think of the effort of carrying them around to be a 
health benefit.  Beats paying for membership in one of those exercise "meet 
market" gyms.
