Weight comparison?

Just out of curiosity (to those who have played with the V1U). The specs report it being lighter than the FX1 and Z1U (on B&H Photo) however I played around with the V1U for a limited time and it seemed heavier than the FX1 I have recently been using. Is it just my imagination? Or maybe the NPF960 battery attached to the V1U was adding a lot of the weight that the stock battery of the FX1 didn't have?

AFAIK V1 = 1.5kg, FX1 =2.1kg. (ish)

I think both of those are without battery, but even so, they're more or less right (give or take a 100gms or so). the 960 battery is a big chunky thing and for sure that will add quite a biot of weight.

Yeah I'm glad I came to the realization that it was the battery because that was the ONLY thing that upset me was the weight. Other than that it was amazing and I can't wait to buy it when it comes out.

I like a little heft. It seems to make handholding a bit steadier. But it also makes standing around and waiting more of a pain.
