Honestly, that should be the case, regardless of the camera body. With a lens bigger than a small prime, you should be holding it by cradling the lens with your left hand so your right hand is free to work the controls.

Yes, you are right. We all cradle the lens with the left hand. Duh. But the difference is that with the SL-1 and a large lens, you might not be holding the camera at all - just hitting the buttons as needed. It's a little weird when you start putting longer lenses on it - even ones as short as the non-L version of the 70-300 IS.

Yes, I actually hold the 5D III camera itself no matter what lens I am using!

the thing i really love about the SL1 is versatility. one day i can go compact with the 40 pancake for some street shooting, then go normal with a standard tamron 17-50 for a weekend getaway or go big and bulky with the 50-150 for some concert coverage.

these are things that interest me and i feel the SL1 can provide that.

I could not have said it any better. Even though I plan to use the smaller lenses most of the time with the SL 1, it's nice to know I can use all EF and EF-S lenses if and when needed. Versatile is a good way to describe the SL-1. I guess I'd describe the EOS-M the same way - But, I look forward to a future EOS-M with a viewfinder. Which, I believe is coming.

As I was approaching this question in the thread, I was getting images of BH selling ballast plates. 200, 400, 600, and 800 gram plates that thread into the tripod socket, discreetly balancing with the lens of your choice.

Funny!

To my way of thinking, one of the advantages of a lighter body is more room in your weight total for heavier glass

Even funnier! But to each his own!

I have a 5d3 and the SL1. I like the Sl1 as a compact backup. Nice to have a smaller body when I don't feel like lugging the 5d3 around. As for having the SL1 as my only body I would have to really think about it. Obviously I would rather have my 5d3 as my only body but if your looking not spend much more that the cost of the SL1 I would have to really think about the 60d.

it's also cute(for me) to have a big lens and a very small body. it looks funny.

The SL1 fits nicely in my bag with my 5d3.

Great little vacation camera. So portable I didn't mind taking it out on the golf course during my vacation. Sl1 + Kit lens.

Perfect lie in desert golf - Palm Springs.

Excellent pictures from the SL1. By the way, how's the AF of the SL1, considering it has only 1 cross-type. Can it track moving kids?

Have not tried tracking kids but the video seems to track cars and speed limit signs reasonably well:

Reposting here from macro gallery...

I owned Panasonic G3 before. Much nicer sensor and much less noise at ISO 100.
