That's what I do when I'm going out shooting with one of my 6x7 bodies, I match a (1) lens to where/what I'm planing to shoot. Since I usually only shoot one roll (10 exposures) per outing, having a 2nd or 3rd lens with me is not necessary.

Where as scavengers such as myself plan to capture any good image I come across.
You can't shoot 135,000 images in 6 years with one lens. I have often taken 800 images on single outing for wildlife, and 300 images on single hike. everything from informal portraits to landscape, to macros, to wildlife.

I simply hate missing opportunities. if I'm there, with a camera, I may as well get a picture. Going on one of my 4 hour hikes with one roll of film would drive me crazy.
