I never said a 690g camera was heavy. And in fact I have decided to stick with my 6D and Canon 70-300 L IS, which works well with a 1.4 extender.

And insolent remarks such as the one above would be better addressed to someone not in their 70s recovering from a triple bypass and a stroke, who is in fact undergoing weight training as part of rehab.

You know i honestly was wondering if there was another reason (medical) for considering weight when i was writing my response. However don't hold me accountable for not knowing your age or medical condition, that was information you didn't provide so i had to assume you were overall average.

"Alternatively a used K5, which seems more highly regarded but is heavier."

My mistake, with batteries the K-5 is 740g and i assumed you suggested the camera was heavy with that comment.
