It looks like I'm a little late to the thread but..

Congrats on your purchases! I have the exact setup you mentioned, the 15 with a bessa-L. I have used it a lot; it's practically the only film I use anymore. I particularly enjoy being able to see the meter from waist-level.. It's liberating not to 'have' to look through a viewfinder all the time. It has given me some unusual perspectives that I may not have considered with a more traditional camera.

Is the 90 the elmar collapsible? I had that lens a long time ago and really enjoyed the character of the pictures I got out of it. It's a real bargain in the Leica lineup.

I would be careful using the 90 on the L, though.. remember that the Bessa L doesn't come with a rangefinder. You will have to scale-focus. I have had mixed results doing this with even a 50mm lens. I have used a 35 with it though, guessing distances, and getting good shots even wide open.
