Just wondering what accounts for the size difference. Thanks, Bill

More features: better build quality, more memory slots, more internal components, better weather resistance and more FPS

More options: can be programed for more photo situations, and more selectable AF points

The increased features and options require much more electronics, with the associated air space for cooling, requires more space.
