Just how heavy is a Leicaflex?

So... just how heavy is a Leicaflex, anyway? Heavier than my Canon F1n (800g)?

The SL/2 weighed 770 grams.

The SL weighed 1185 grams with the standard 50mm Summicron-R. That would put the body at about 845 grams.

Just out of curiosity:

the weight of my SL2 a few minutes ago was 1,147 g.

This includes the 50 mm- Summicron lens altered to 3-cam, the hood and a KODAK film.

Without the lens, no cap: 801 g.

This confirmes the figures posted above.

Best wishes and good shooting

The Leicaflex is worth its weight in gold. I use it for studio photography and solid tripod shots :)

I got the weight of the SL from the Leica Manual. It may actually weigh less than that because the 1185 weight may have been with a chrome lens and I assumed a black lens.

I got the weight of the SL/2 from an SL/2 brochure (the infamous nipple version:-)).

That's not so heavy. Thanks, guys.
