Discuss. Inspired by another thread and me dropping and catching my father's F30 before it hit the ground. I often find myself balancing my D40 in my hand rather than gripping it tightly; it just stays in there. Compact cameras on the other hand seem designed with the single purpose of looking silky smooth and hoping you wear the strap! Every single one that i remember handling was like that. Maybe that's why the G10 looks so attractive.
