Plastic should be king..
In reply to jonikon, Mar 30, 2012

I'm at photography for about 37 years and have owned tons of cameras. I think that this metal thing in expensive cameras is because people expect it. I've big cameras like 1SDsii and iii and 1Div. I wish they brought out lighter plastic versions with the same functions.
Metal dents if you drop it. Plastic doesn't.

I think that properly used, plastic is the superior material because of its ability to take a bang and because it's a helluva lot lighter.
