I'm curious what that comment is based on? As I understand older film SLRs, they did not have nearly the same amount of "stuff" packed into them. They did not need the kind of power modern DSLRs do, so did not need huge battery packs (which is where a lot of weight comes from). Modern electronics are also quite dense, and we pack a LOT of electronics into relatively small packages these days. I've never known film itself to be particularly heavy.

So, if film SLR bodies were heavier than modern DSLR bodies, what, exactly, made them that much heavier?

In terms of weight, my lightest body is a non-interchangeable-lens Petri Rangefinder, then my mum's Pentax Spotmatic isn't far behind, and they're both nice and made of metal.
My EOS 3 is 780g without battery or lens, not far behind my 7D at 820g with no lens (not sure if with battery), the extra weight in them is going to the weathersealing, tough body, drive motor in 3 and those dual digics in the 7D must weight a bit...
Then the Medium Format big boys are Mamiya 645AF and Pentacon 6 at 1.7kg, and the big Soviet Tank Kiev 60 at just over 2kg (P6 and K60 weighed here with standard lenses).

The pentaprisms are the biggest killer behind metal weathersealed-bodies, Li-batteries and motor drives, the difference in weight between a sensor and a film cartridge is negligible.

Still, none of those are "too heavy" for me. There's definitely times I'd like an M9 (and not just for the IQ and prestige), but I'm generally happy carrying any body around.
Lenses, on the other hand, weigh a lot more (like 2kg for a Zeiss 300mm/4 and 1.1kg for the 180/2.8, with both of them in my bag i'm struggling not matter what body/ies i'm also carrying).
Too much gear, too little space.

Finally some relative credible rumors and 16 bit. I believe will be in a 5D3 Body (not 1D) aimed directly to studio work. At those specs will be at around $ 5K.
For what i do... regarding photography... 46 MP is a blessing from haven

I really, really hope this will be true

Can I ask you why you believe that?

5:4 Crop mode with VF support would be one nice addition.

As this is a rumour site. I've just heard that the rumoured Canon 3DX is actually going to be called a 0DX which tops the 1DX.

It's going to be a 100mp "ultra" medium format camera, it's going to have 32 bits of colour rendition and a full 24 steps of dynamic range. It will fit FD, EF and EFs, Nikon, Sony, Leica and Hasselblad lenses and will have 292 areas of AF focus points.

It will have thunderbolt, Firewire 800 and USB3/4/5 built in for future compatibility.
It will also have GPS, Bluetooth, Wifi built in and will have the ability to make phone calls. It will even call you when the battery gets below 10% and recharge itself with gravity induction from the moon at night.

The price point of this little 5oz marvel will be £1000 with a £300 rebate from any Comet store. You'll get a free cinema ticket to the new Disney Star Wars movie too. Coming in December 2012-2022ish.

Sounds like a bargain to me.
Only if it comes with a mouse for a squeaky clean sensor ;)

Now here is a good product idea: Clean your sensor squeaky clean with the sensor-cleaning mouse.

Sounds good to me. ;D

Should give us hope.  Got the lens cap to market without a single peep on Canon Rumors.... Must mean the megapixel beast is coming soon
