So I just had a conversation with my buddy about cameras. He told me while he likes the image quality and versatility of DSLRs, he dislikes the weight and size that comes along with it. Long story short, he is replacing the DSLR which was stolen from him with one of the Canon Powershots. I respect and understand his perspective, so note that this thread is not intended to be an argument about DSLR vs. Mirrorless or anything silly like that. But, does anyone actually like the weight and solid feel of their DSLR? I do.

I feel the heft of the professional DSLR helps me take steady images with slow shutter speeds. 'Polar moment of inertia.'

I can see how some people don't want to carry a heavy camera. I only have a problem when they word it like everyone should want a lighter camera.
