I was shooting an night event 2 weeks ago when a participant pulled out a D800 with 50 1.4.
We chatted fr while traded cameras for a moment and I took a double take and turned it around to see the label. It felt lighter than a d90. I guess I had gotten so used to the weight of the D800 with the grip and two batteries, a 70-200 and SB900 in the hand that I had forgotten that it really is not large or heavy in basic configuration.
It is not a large camera when un-gripped. It was only the first week that I shot without a grip or without extra battery, over a year ago.
It is all relative.....
