I never understood the concept of balancing cameras; I've never balanced a camera in my life. Those who do have not learned the simple task of holding a camera correctly.
I've wondered about that too. When is a body+lens "balanced"? I don't think "balanced" would be the right word when I mount my M-50/1.7 or DA70 on my K10D - the lens weighs close to nothing compared to the body. The DA16-45 + K10D combo is good to hold, so maybe it's balanced? Let's see: The K10D has about twice the weight of the DA16-45. So, maybe 1:2 lens:body ratio is "balanced"? So, to use a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 IS USM I will need a 3 kg body

not sure, but I can tell you the FA*80-200/2.8 is not "balanced" on any body I have tried it on.. Maybe a -1kg body would help me to carry it..
