If you follow Popular Photography you probably already know that Bob Krist uses D7000s because of their lighter weight. It is really a personal choice based on the needs of the particular photographer.

With respect to the weight of the bodies, if you look at the D3s as an example of a relatively large and heavy body, it has substantial weight because of its fully metal body, big buffer, and built in battery pack. However, even with a D200 or 300 if you strap on the battery pack you've got a large and relatively heavy body.

If you buy the concrete story I've got a bridge I'd like to sell you.

Have you ever heald an f5???
