Re: A57 Focus vs A 700

The a57 is much lighter than a700, but i agree with geoffmalter, that a sling might be a plus for you. I use a sling and keep the camera tucked behind my left hip and can go all day without problems. my son borrowed it, and hasnt returned it yet, so i was forced to use the neck strap. big, big difference. gets noticeably heaver after time with the strap. now to toss a wrench in the mix, have you looked at an a55. i think its even lighter than the a57, some help here to verify would help this.
