    though it is suprisingly heavier than I thought.
    Well, 1035g incl. battery and strap which is not really heavy but also not a light weight system. The housing is pretty solid made so that will costs some extra weight.

    Are you sure about the weight? Out of curiosity I weighed a 6X9 cm Moscow 5, which is identical in construction to the Zeiss Super Ikonta C, and it came in at 854 grams. I would have expected the new Fuji/Bessa 667 to weigh much less?

    says 1000 grams. That would agree with RobertV if you add battery and strap.

    Well my (Leica) M7 with leather (half-) case strap and batteries and Summicron 2,0/50mm is also 1005g so in that way it's a light weight medium format camera.

    Sandy,

    I just put mine on a scale and it came out to 1021 grams. So Fuji's specs are pretty close. Mine is a Fuji not a Bessa, btw.

    Does the Voigtlander Bessa III 667 (Fuji GF670) have TTL metering? I did check for this, but it`s not mentioned other than the actual metering pattern.

    According the instruction manual, throught the lens metering, centered weight. As far I have tested this camera a pretty accurate exposure measurement.

    Thanks Robert, TTL metering is something that the Mamiya 7 II lacks and is useful if a X2 yellow or yellow-green filter for B&W film is used for example. I wish that Voigtlander would make this more clear in their description of the Camera.

    Well it's not very clear in the manual and I checked it out with a filter. It's not through the lens metering but the measurement is done near the V.F. so it's not a TTL measurement.
