    I have the same idea. Only I would increase the strength of the front to accommodate more heavy lenses.

    Possible stronger diagonal front bar?

    At 39, the best bang for buck would be a 210mm Apo-Gerogon. A bit dimmer than f5,6, but sharp at f22. If you need a shutter, any of Salomons mentioned lenses will do.
