156 grams ... does it really make all the difference?

.. is the difference between the X-T3 and the X-T30.

Is this just me or are there others who cringe when they read about a camera for hiking where the 156 grams makes all the difference?

I get it when it all adds up but are we also maybe a little bit precious when it comes to those incremental gains?

Or: would you be deeply concerned if you gained 156 grams the night before your big hike?

My Nikon F3 (not the HP) weighed 715 grams - and I considered the camera well balanced and far from heavy. That started after when the F4 came out at around 1200 grams ... and that was for a plastic ugliness.

So why is it that all of a sudden people are counting beans here?? I mean, come on, but 156 grams??

For hiking?
