    It just seemed to fit so nicely in these huge things I call hands. the whole left-right reversal thing felt a bit weird to deal with, but I imagine I'd get used to that in time.

    I saw an RZ in a local shop a while ago and was amazed at the size. It's significantly larger than my Kiev 60 and seems a bit larger than my 4x5 Speed Graphic. Probably more than I would want to carry around regularly, and I'm 6'2". (I do carry my Kiev (ARAX) 88 regularly when walking around the city. B&H lists a weight of almost 6 lbs for the RB with back, WL, and 127mm, which is probably slightly more than the Speed. And many modern field cameras are lighter. So don't think that medium format is invariably easier to transport.

    Well, I'll have to admit that price difference is one factor in going for one of the RB67's listed on KEH. I can get an RB for as low as 214, the bronica ETR series are at least another 100 bucks. I'm trying to satisfy an urge without killing my budget lol

    An RZ or RB has all that mechanical SLR stuff going on inside. A view camera is mostly air, so 4x5" cameras for the field range from about 2.5-7 lbs. (Toho Shimo, Gowland, and Ikeda Anba at the light end, Linhof Technika and Sinar F at the heavier end, and most folding field cameras somewhere in between).
