Your right to an extent

Polycarbonite is strong, easily molded and machines easily, is light and has better thermal efficiency. It also distorts under impact without breaking or cracking, to a point. Safety helmets, car panels, etc perform fine. I have never known a lens or mount to break away from a poly chassis DSLR. I have seen a few images posted on DPR that show it, I but I think its kind of rare. BTW, one of the shots I saw was a 5D3, which also has the plastic interior construction. I also think any impact that would tear a lens off a D600 would also damage any DSLR. Alloy bodies are perceived as isuperior, but I think the alloy advantages are very small in reality.
