A Rollei 2.8 weighs about a kilo, give or take. Considering that this is really a complete camera system, it's an easy weight to put up with. I pack my little Domke shoulder bag with this, and I'm ready to go just about anywhere: 2.8F, film, Gossen meter, Rolleinar 1, B+W green filter, shade, plus a cable release and Rolleifix if my tripod is in my suitcase. More film as necessary in another bag. Last year I travelled from California to Europe and New Zealand like this. Photography was not the objective of my trip, so I packed a light kit. Though yes, my tripod was with me in my luggage. Byron.
