The winder and its requisite batteries make the "compact" R-bodies weigh =
half-pound more than the SL; besides I prefer to use full manual control
and with the SL's smooth thumb-winding action, continuously-variable
shutter and bright viewfinder I prefer it to my winder-ized R4sP bodies
with the electric release.

Let me know when you're ready to sell your SL - I'll replace one of my
R-bodies with it!
