E300 Comfort Issue
Nov 5, 2005

I had the good fortune to try the E300 today at school where I teach. They purchased a bunch of 2 lens kits for Photography students. Very intuitive interface and I loved the lenses. Got pretty good initial results for indoors without flash. Question: I haven't noticed the issue specifically addressed on this forum but I noticed particularly with the 40-1500 lens attached, it felt as if the camera was quite heavy to the left side and wanted to twist out of my right hand. I dont have the biggest hands in the world but didn't feel this discomfort when handling a D70. Does the E500 have better balance?
