I see build quality as being unrelated to light and fragile. I have seen several instances of screws simply not being tightened enough and parts falling off. Fortunately, this can be permanently corrected.
Light? Yes, a bit. I see this as an advantage. Weight adds nothing good unless one is talking about anvils. Reliable? Yes, other than the assembly problems. I think the design is excellent. It is a very good camera. When I lost both of mine, I replaced the ZI bodies and ZM lenses with exactly the same models.
