I'm wondering if there might be issues with some of the plastic body dSLRs cameras caused by repeated lens changes and the weight of some lenses. Has anyone had problems?

Do any of the cams have plastic lens mounts? Which cams have metal mounts attached to plastic frames? Do any of these cameras have a metal lens mount attached to a metal under frame? Thanks!

They all have metal chassis and lens mounts, only the body sections are polycarbonate. No worries :-)

Just to add a note: the bodies all have metal mounts, yes, but some (Canon) kit lenses have plastic mounts--IMHO metal against plastic is unacceptable. YMMV
