    Can't help you with a dealer in Berlin, but here's a pic of a Mamiya 7 with a Leica M4P.

    Leica is a great camera, but you can't beat a larger negative!

    The Mamiya 7II is larger, but very lightweight. I traveled around Italy with two bodies and a set of lenses. Wasn't an issue.

    This image was made with a 7II (not from Italy - grin):

    I have both and they are great cameras. On the issue of size, I actually find the Leica too small. I have trouble with the aperture controls on normal and short lenses. But, I'm 6'2" tall and I have pretty big hands.

    i hear you Jeff and i agree but i'm not sure i would feel comfortable carrying a bigger body and a longer lens (80mm F4.)

    If you want the bigger format (6x7cm) and the same weight like a Leica M and a fixed lens 3,5/80mm is not a problem you should look at the Fuji/Cosina Voigtländer Bessa III 667. It's a real compact folder 6x6cm and 6x7cm format camera.

    Longer lens? The 80mm is about the lightest/smallest lens for that camera. It's smaller than the 43mm, 65mm, and 150mm etc. It's pretty darn light and about as easy to use as any other 35mm out there. Go for the bigger negative and the best possible glass out there, it surely cannot disappoint.
