Re: Will we ever get a small FF body?!? i mean D90 size....

the D90 is 620 grams body only.  the D600 is 760 grams body only.  very little difference in weight between the two.

what will be the difference in terms of weight will be the lenses.  larger image circle means a larger lens, which has more glass and thus weighs more.  they are usually built to higher standards too, adding to the weight.  you won't see FX DSLR lenses go down to the size of DX lenses unless there are serious reductions in specifications, which is a bad trade-off.

I think the D600 is just the right size for the lenses it will use.  one day we might see a full-frame in a D90-sized body (it isn't impossible) but it doesn't make too much sense to me.
