I was waiting so long to get an FF and still i need to carry all this weight...

Unfortunately, the mirror box needs to be larger to allow for the larger mirror and pentaprism than an APS C DSLR like the D90, so that negates any idea of it being as small as the D90. The D600 is only 150gms heavier than the D90, so what's the big deal?

I agree, the body is not much bigger or heavier, but most FF lenses are pretty heavy. Anything smaller than a D600 gets unwieldy with some larger lenses like the 24-70 and most of the weight I carry around is FF glass.

One of the reasons I bought the 24-120. It does save a lot of weight compared to multiple lenses.
