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.

Funny, I just posted about this topic in a mirrorless vs dslr thread.  A person was asking what the differences were.

I do like the weightiness of my D7000 as opposed to my J1.  I don't even mind putting heavy lenses on it, in fact I like the solid feel of heavier lenses.  So, yes, I also like the heavier, solid feel of a rugged dslr.  A tiny system has it's place and uses, but if I don't have to worry about storing my camera anywhere while I am walking around, or if I am not being called upon to do other stuff while also photographing, I prefer to handle my D7000.
