    Know what you mean Steve, I've been lugging a C33( seems to weigh about half as much again as the C330F), a C330F 3 lenses and a Prism for about twenty years, and have sometimes wondered why the Mamiya C system didn't include a truss for your hernia !

    With the attractive prices you can find on Mamiya TLRs, I decided to fill in some of the gaps in my kit. So now, with several bodies, 5 lenses, 2 prisms, light meter, L-brackets and assorted filters, I purchased a saltwater reel case from Cabella's to carry it all in. When fully loaded, I can now barely lift it! Well, not really, but if you throw in a tripod or monopod, you definitely get your exercise.

    But my new strategy is that I put that single reel bag, with the full TLR kit, and an empty camera backpack or my Domke bag into the car, and I do not need to decide what equipment to actually carry until I get to where I'm going and I see what it is like...

    1) I brought a Tamron 752 pack for the C330 so that I could load it from the top. When I carried it in a shoulder bag it fawked up my back.
    2) I usually use the camera from the back seat of my OHV [Grand Cherokee] when I am off-roading. That way I set up the camera, take photos and come back to the car when I change lenses.
    3) I use the C330 when I am not pressed for time. If I have to move in a timely fashion, I use my Nikon.
