To carry, perhaps. To use? Which looks like a more comfortable grip to you?

Which looks more comfortable to me hardly matters, since (1) I don't tend to take pictures one-handed anyway, and (2) most likely neither of us knows how big Kim's hands are--surely it's the OP's fit that matters.

Then too, carrying is not necessarily an unimportant part of the equation. Even dSLR owners commonly have secondary cameras as carry-arounds rather than constantly toting the big gear. How much hefting is going to be acceptable depends on whether you go to take the pictures, or just take the pictures to better remember the trip.
