i did it! and then i did it again...
on my way home from the very boring worksite i stopped at the local pro shop to pick up my new domke bag...went for the f2 so i could fit all my gear in one place for a day's outing.
what a nice bag...like the f6 but with big pockets on the ends. i'm guessing the f6 will remain the mainstay bag as i rarely go on major shoots any more.
and while i was there i pulled out the old credit card and bought the fuji 55-200.
