So far, I have only had 70cm/2m handhelds, but I am considering buying a small rig. Small because I have no shack and would use it in a hilly area. So I need to go for a walk to have any chance to get a QSO.
I am considering the Elecraft KX2 and the ICOM IC-705. The latter would be my favourite, if it weren't for the missing antenna tuner. That + the small batt and higher usage make it all in all heavier = less attractive.
