XL2 Balance
 
Seems like the consensus is that the XL2 is not well balanced. I need a new SD camera and thinking of the XL2 with stock 20x lens. Don't want to add more weight to the back end. Is it manageable to shoulder mount for a decent amount of time (2+ hour stretches)?

Hi Ed,

Here are a couple of threads on the topic:

I find it is more the "lugging around" than the "shooting with" that is a bother.
