    This is what the Nature Trekker looks like with RB67 kit, that is one body, four 120 backs, 90mm, 140mm and 50mm lenses, two extension tubes, lee filter set, a few other odds and ends like lens hoods, cable release, lots of film. It's not tooooo heavy. If I want to add anything else, then other lenses strap to the outside in lowepro sliplock lens cases.

    Thanks benjiboy... good point. I carried the RZ67, two lenses and two packs again this past weekend, many miles into wilderness, mountain terrain. One of the main issues is that the camera has to be repacked for moving significant distance. I tried to carry it on the tripod (eg., over the shoulder) but it was too heavy and I was concerned about strain on the tripod screw/head. So, every time I wanted to take photos I had to unpack it all, set up, take photos, break down setup, repack, etc. over and over. Makes me want to get a Mamiya 7ii. Still, I'm determined to get the RZ out into the wilds. Thanks again.
