So I just had a conversation with my buddy about cameras. He told me while he likes the image quality and versatility of DSLRs, he dislikes the weight and size that comes along with it. Long story short, he is replacing the DSLR which was stolen from him with one of the Canon Powershots. I respect and understand his perspective, so note that this thread is not intended to be an argument about DSLR vs. Mirrorless or anything silly like that. But, does anyone actually like the weight and solid feel of their DSLR? I do.

I usually carry about 20 lbs of gear and a few hours into a mountain hike, i sometimes wish i just had my S95   It can get a bit hard on the hands too after a few hours of shooting.  I'd actually prefer a larger camera most of the time, my D7000 and D7100 are too small without the grip on.

I can't complain too much though, Ansel Adams regularly carried about 30lbs in a pack and another ~100lbs on a donkey
