Actually, the Canon Rebel yesterday was 17.4 oz for the body and 7.1 oz for the 18 - 55 mm zoom = less than 2 pounds. If you're putting a big honking zoom lense on it to take close ups from 50 feet away, then the overall weight will be a lesser problem than the torque from the load.
For MOST people and a majority of applications, this will work fine!
