    D´oh. I left my Kiev at home - if you can wait a week, I can weigh it and come back to you with the weight for the camera (88Six) and the lenses.

    kievcamera.com lists the weight of the Kiev88CM-MLU as 4.6 pounds (not specifying if this is only the camera or includes the lens). I doubt that the Arax version would be much different.

    My ARAX-CM-MLU camera body with film back (loaded with film) and spot meter prism finder weighs 3.7 pounds. My 80mm f2.8 Arsat C weighs .8 pounds.

    The complete camera with the 80mm f2.8 Arsat C lens weighs 4.5 pounds.

    FYI, my 65mm Perspective Control Arsat lens weighs 1.5 pounds.
