Who carries around 50-75 lbs. of photo gear? I carry a camera, 4 lens, 1 flash and extra battery and a couple xtra memory cards and my bag weighs a whopping 7 lbs even. I'd have to carry 8 cameras 16 lens and 4 batteries to make it to 50 lbs lol. I can see where I would want something smaller if I were to backpack but very few of my shots are done where I have to walk for miles on end

Robert, your statement remind me of any grandfather who used to brag:

  • Sonny, when I was your age, I walk 10 mile school bared footed in the snow

  • my retort is always why don't you wear a shoes, stupid?

Carrying a 50-75 lbs camera gear doesn't make you more of a man . If anything, it only highlight your stupidity when a can take the same photo with a cheaper and lighter setup.

I won't criticized you too much because I used to share your cynicism against m4/3 mirrorless. I just bought a Panasonic GF2, and frankly I'm stunned at the differences.

These are the picture of my 2 cameras:
