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.

Personally I prefer a larger camera, but bear in mind that many of  the latest DSLRs are very much smaller and lighter than their predecessors, so an alternative might be simply to adopt one of these, perhaps as a second body to, or in place of, a larger model.

This would also allow the use of existing lenses and accessories.
