Re: Canon shooter considering Nikon and Canon for 2nd Body


I have the 5D2, 7D and 60D. While the 60D is a little smaller and lighter than the 5D2, it's not a significant difference when compared to the weight of the bag and lenses. Oddly, the 7D is a little heavier than the 5D2. I don't think I can tell the difference in bag weight between a 60D/17-55 2.8 and 5D2/24-105 L. If you really want to reduce size and weight but need a quality rig, I'd consider a GX-1, ELP-3 or Sony wondercam.

Another thought is to buy a small pocket flash--used 220EX or new 270EX2--and a lighter zoom like the 24-105L or 28-135 IS. After messing with various combos for travel, I found the 5D2, 24-105L and 220EX barely heavier and bulkier than my 7D/17-55 or 60D/17-55, so I usually take the 5D2.
