...do you still feel motivated to haul around a big DSLR with lenses all day?

Yes, and tripod besides D300s, 12-24, 24-120...

And it's not big in my book. Very close to a perfect fit. Those small, flimsy ones really do nothing for me. Prefer big and slow

One evening around midnight I was unpacking the tripod on the harbour, setting up for some shots of a special rig. A car comes speeding, braking hard and turned towards me... had a tiny second there, but continued setting up the tripod and unpacking the camera.

The car stopped behind me and a friendly young brite and his girlfriend greeted me and then took up a Sony Nex-7 (?), touched some buttons and took a couple of shots. Looked all-right to me, when he showed me. They wished me good shooting and took off again...

By now my camera was mounted on the tripod and I was unpacking the wireless remote.... sigh.
