Re: Complaints About DSLR Size
In reply to lbj1891, Jul 22, 2013

It wasn't as much about weight as it was about size.   After years of DSLR-ing, I found it attractive to down-size (sometime between the relase of the 5D and 5D2 I was starting to question the need for size, when eye-ing the film SLR in the cabinet).   The loss of weight was an advantage too, don't get me wrong [g].   The trade off was to ask more of myself than I had to with the DSLR.   Which was a timely thing to do at that point, and I also regard that as a positive aspect of walking away from said mass.

There was a time there wasn't a choice.   It was either Prosumer or DSLR.   We just have another respectable option now for whatever reasons one might want such an option.   That's really all it is.
