Re: Why? Is it getting heavier on its own?

Yes. As I pointed out at the start of last April, light photons, which have no mass, get converted in the sensor to electrons, which have mass. While we record the values of these electrons by accessing them via the ADC circuitry, they actually never leave the camera. Thus, the camera slowly gets heavier and heavier ; ).
