Re: Is the 5d Mark II too heavy for everyday carry for a newbie?

To those who have used the 5d mark II, how many hours have you guys gone carrying the camera and still have the strength to be able to hold the camera steady for street shoots?

And who here are Non-Pro who carry their 5d EVERYDAY? Not just leave in the car everyday, but take it as Every Day Carry every single day as part of their everyday kit?
If it isn't too much to answer, how big is your frame?

I am small man, around 5'6" in height and not that bulky, BUT, I don't mind carrying heavy things.

How do you guys carry your camera (what bag)?
Are there bags that don't look like camera bags suitable for the 5d Mark II/III?
