    RB lovers that shoot landscapes have strong backs or hernias. I love my old RZ but it's too dang heavy. Especially with a prism.

    My doctor told me to get a bit more exercise to get my cholesterol down a bit.

    The insinuation was clear, get more exercise or start spending money on pills.

    I'd rather buy film, so I am starting to see the size and weight of an RB and it's support gear as advantage.

    They are OK if they are in a backpack or around the shoulder, but they are not the best around the neck. A longer strap worn like a sling helps. It takes the weight off the back of your neck and puts it onto a shoulder, while still allowing you to bring the camera up to eye level.

    This is how I carry mine. I wish the strap lugs weren't squared off and I wish they were placed more like the M645 or hasselblads because it sits a little awkwardly when you wear it over your shoulder.

    Well, it looks like I'm getting a Hasselblad now, so...

    I'll be listing my RB stuff on ebay over the next week or so, don't expect to get too much for it, but you never know. I have a few lenses and accessories so I think I'll be able to recover what I'll be spending on the Hassy, but no-where near what I spent on it to begin with.

    What puts me off is the weight, For me, it was *just* manageable as a walk-around / travel camera with a good neck strap, the WLF and one of their smaller/lighter lenses. I took it on a trip to Japan in the middle of summer and after a day I wanted to throw it in a lake. Up until then, it had been great, but after that trip, honey moon = over.
