Re: My issue with size/weight has nothing to do with compacts.
In reply to Rick Knepper, Jan 10, 2013

For some years now I've used a 5D or Mk II as my main camera when shooting seriously, with originally an xxD as backup, and a compact - S70 for some time. It got to be the Mk II, 7D as backup, and S90, but with my lens kit, that was just getting too much. So first I got a 600D sa backup, and that was a lot better weightwise, but still heavier than ideal. The 5D II itself has always been too big and heavy, so the Mk III hasn't really tempted me... and then December happened. Now I've got the 6D and an M - what a huge difference in weight, and the cameras suit my shooting.
