I own lots of gear, rangefinder and DSLR, all used. But I carry an M2 and a 50 Summicron Version III in my briefcase every day. No meter, but I use the same film so I have gotten halfway decent at getting a usable exposure. Minimalism, gear-wise, has its advantages. It's also nice having choices, but I have also realized that I need to shed some gear.
When traveling, I usually take too many cameras and bodies. I do need to whittle it down a bit.
For me, it's a balancing act that keeps wobbling back and forth.
