Re: Complaints About DSLR Size

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.

Yes, I do.  More accurately, I don't even notice it.  But there are DSLRs and there are DSLRs.  My D5100 with 18-105 VR probably weighs 1/3 or less than a guy's D4 plus some high dollar heavy lens.  It seems that those who complain about the size and weight don't consider a lighter DX from the same manufacturer.

But since I didn't read through this thread maybe that's already been suggested.
