Re: Do you think it's too heavy?

Heavy or not depends not only on the weight of the gear but also on one's fitness. 30 years ago I used to carry 10-18 kg of gear with me. On occasions airlines refused to allow it in the cabin as hand luggage. Now in the 7th decade of life anything more than 5 kg is heavy for me. I found that not just the weight of the lens & the camera but also the distribution of the weight is very important for carrying it over a long time. I often carry 30D+100-400 over distances and found that an extra sling tied to the lens barrel & put over my neck makes it much easier to carry.
