At my age, it is difficult to balance yourself when walking even on level ground.
    When I had a severe case of tennis elbow, I got a smaller camera, a Leica rangefinder. I'm better now, and am using the DSLR again. But the RF is definitely a good camera is compactness is needed.

    I am in my 30s but still find D90/D300/D700 too heavy for travelling.
    I was on D5000 and am now trying Sony A55, both of which I found to have great weight vs. features trade-off.

    But again, I am not a pro.

    You have my respect too. Me at 61 carrying D700 + Lens + SB900 I do not think I have problem also, but hand held shooting a photo is very different. Just last night the PSS instructor just asked me why my photo turn out blur shooting with 45-200mm zoom. Man, looks like I need to go back to IPPT before qualify for photographer.

    Look like the same case is repeated with D7000 sale.
    when u bought the D90, how much the seller deduct for u for the lens ?

    let's me just assume, based on $2299 RRP, that popular shops could be selling this D7K+Kit for about S$1988 (auspicious number )

    this means, when they start selling body only, D7K could be in the region of S$1730...

    if this is correct, then it is more expensive than i'd thought initially
    agree. if this is the price, i think its a little higher than the expected one..
    why sgpore price is higher than the US?

    7% GST still applied. But if you don't live in Singapore, you can get back around 5.5% GST refund (need to get the GST refund form at the shop) when you leave Singapore at the Airport... if I'm not wrong, you won't get any GST refund if you leave Singapore via the causeway.

    Have a nice day.

    I am st the KOpi session yesterday. I must say this D90 is much heavier compare to D7000.
    I think I can hang it around my neck with a 50mm len prime.

    Tell you what I observe...many people think carry big cameras with big lenses feels very pro. I think I'll feel very bodoh. Choose the smallest, lighters camera that fits my hands will do. ISO quality at high ISO doesn't cut with me when I always shoot below ISO400. For that kind of demands, any entry level model will do. Then again, nobody will stop you if you want a D3s.

    There's only a 76 grams difference, about the weight of 1 AA battery.

    D7K physically feels like a D90...the dimensions are very similar....
