    I use one to photograph the family on days out. I bought the multi-angle grip but actually found it easier to use it without. I tend to use either the 90mm or 65mm. With the WLF it's actually rather nice to hand-hold, chunky but no heavier than one of those new fangled d*git*l thingies with the huge zoomamatic lenses.

    I handhold mine regularly with no problems.

    The bigger problem is the neckache I get from carrying it around for hours at a time.

    I handhold both with the trigger grip and prism finder, or with WLF and no grip. Also use tripod when I have subject that will hold still long enough.

    Me, however with the RZ. In fact, it's all I do with her.

    I did (moved to RZ II now).

    was a joy to use with 400 speed films (TMAX and Portra). Every so often a shot would be blurred ever so slightly, but not noticeable unless in a large (ie 16x20) print.

    I'm working on getting a grip system engineered (by myself ) in order to hand hold the rz even easier.

    I rather use a tripod on my RB, but if push came to shove I can handhold it.

    he's got a pistol grip though-- does that count?

    Real men handhold their RB-- stick a 360 on the front and heft that puppy.

    Do the sparkles count for nothing these days? I'm so far behind the times...

    I handhold with a left-handed L grip, no problems. Wish the L grip had an MLU detent on the trigger though.
