This incredible camera I have owned now for about half a year.
Its a reasonable weight to begin with. Well under 3kg with mounted lens. There are a great selection of Canon lenses to choose from too.
The 35mm full frame sensor allows for zero cropping when using Canon lenses and along with 21MP creates very good quality photographs. With this camera you can program your own manual user settings and colour/saturation schemes while also altering the camera's top ISO speed as well for low light situations.
The functions button are quite easy to navigate around and easier if you have previously owned a Canon DSLR. The rotation button on the top right still allows you to browse the menu while acting as shutter control in full manual mode. All buttons most agreeable in regards to thumb and index finger. There is a swivel/ rotation dial which can be controlled by the right thumb which can make life easier. Again you can customise the buttons, so you ultimately have control over what button does what.
The video capture function is only 1st/2nd generation (created for the photo-journalist) but the image quality is fantastic, and its amazing low light capabilities make it the best full frame (35mm) video for its asking price. There are a few problems with overheating after a period of 12 minutes of continuous filming however and you will want to stay up to date with all Canon's latest firmware (downloadable free from Canon website).
This is defiantly Canon's greatest achievement where DSLRs are concerned.
