Re: how heavy (lbs.) are sm465, np435
It's been stated in the past:
SM465 means "Strong and Massive" and the 465 is its weight in pounds.
NP435 means "Narrow and Powerful" and its weight is 435 pounds, slightly lighter due to it's aluminum top cover.
But seriously, the NP435 I have heard, is about 140 pounds or so, and the SM465 is in the neighborhood of 210 pounds. When I swapped in the SM465, I unbolted the old SR-4/D300 and lifted it out without any problems. I couldn't lift the SM465 (with no oil) by itself up, never mind with the NP205 attached. I have a few older manuals at home, I'll try to remember to look them up tonight.
