Enjoy,  whatever  your choice.    

No, I totally agree with you. 99% of people in the same boat (if I had to guess).

My opinion is this:

* working pros will always appreciate better ergonomics and more directly-accessible controls in a pro-like body, along with the speed / processing benefits of moving quickly and effortlessly and being able to hold their cam more comfortably especially when they have the big glass on. Basically, making the most professional job of any event without the tech letting you down and with less fiddling. Of course there are pros working in many different capacities, so many other cameras are suitable for some jobs, but generally speaking, larger body and lenses and less fiddly compromises in the body and lenses.

* however, pros will always DESIRE smaller and lighter gear IF it didn't compromise their work. I think we all gravitate to smaller, lighter, convenient, in general.

* BUT the rest of the market is happy with "good enough" and I fall into that category 9 times out of 10. Other times, it's well worth carrying the 'big guns' even though we may complain about the weight or other problems

...and this is the main point behind my thoughts that smaller interchangeable cameras will become the preferred choice for more people in the future.
