    That's pretty good - my 7x17 Technical weighs just over 13 lbs but it's the additional 'stuff' (holders, lenses, case, etc) that really chalks up the overall weight of the kit. Did your camera come with the 'new' lamb skin bellows?

    Congrats!

    What length bellows does this model have?

    Cheers!

    Just out of curiosity Robert, what was the time frame between the time you placed the order (paid for the camera) and delivery?

    Robert,

    Congrat's on the new camera. I look forward to seeing beautiful photographs from it.

    The weight sounds great. I have an 8x20 Technical and it weighs about nine pounds heavier.

    Nice. My technical 8x20 weighs in at 22 lbs. Should have gotten the expedition model. Those darn 8x20's are so nice to use no matter the weight.
