I thought the 4x5 versions of the Technika weighs in at about about 6 lbs? My Gandolfi is much heavier than that....

I doubt if I would every use the rangefinder, since I almost always photograph on a tripod. And, you can focus on the glass with wide angle lenses in the later Tech. versions, so I don't see a need for it.

Then again, I just might. It's always hard to predict what you'll use and not use on a camera before you actually get it.
