Speak for yourself.

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.
