Indeed, Moose, Tina. I hope that you enjoy using the kit, Tina.
The camera with its standard zoom weighs 2kg, I learn from the B&H site. I
have nothing that weighs anywhere close to that. My Fuji X-T20 with 18-55
weighs 700g, with the 50-200 it must be close to 1kg. There is no way that I
would carry cameras any heavier than that.; they’d just stay at home.
I normally carry a little Fuji X-E3 with 18, 23 and 50 lenses, in a Peak Design
Sling that leaves me space for all manner of other stuff, including the longer
zoom. I’m very happy with that level of heft.
