Plastic vs. Composite
1

Plastic composites, e.g. carbon fibre expoxies, are pretty tough stuff. This is not the plastic your old Kodak Brownie was made of. This is the plastic the Stealth Bomber is made of. People get fooled by the "plastic feel" not knowing now high tech this is.

That said, I still love the feel of my metal Panasonic L1. That's a matter of feel, though, not practicality.
