Thanks for the repies everybody

...especially Marcia. That's a BIG lens you carry. You mention 'shoulder carry'. I have made a variety of esoteric items over the years and can't wait to 'make something' for the kit. Cape May sounds wonderful, but that's a busy time of year for me; I'll have to have something shipped in.

Again, thanks. Jim
