Not really the right question. More like "why are dSLRs so big" if you're comparing them to manual focus film cameras. The question you asked makes it sound as if FF dSLRs are giant, and APS-C dSLRs are not. Not true at all. If you compare cameras with similar build quality and features, you'll find there is virtually no difference in size between FF dSLRs and APS-C dSLRs.

6, 7 and 8% increases in linear measurements give an estimated 22% increase in volume, which is not inconsiderable, especially as it's between the largest DX and smallest FX xameras in the Nikon range.
