I was joking a bit but yes, increasing the total mass of the camera with the mirror mass and speed remaining the same reduces the effect of mirror slap.

Whether or not that makes any difference on a given shot is open.

The reason I was joking is that the extra weight takes more effort to hold and that may add to camera shake.

I do hand carry this regularly but when shots are important I like to use a monopod or tripod.
