Have people's hands suddenly become gargantuan? What makes FF cameras of the past (like Canon AE & Nikon FM) fine 20 years ago, suddenly too small?

The only reason originally for the bulk and weight of dSLRs was they couldn't fit the discrete electronics inside a standard sized SLR body...but today it's been proven that the electronics can be fit into a normal sized body, even with a mirror (Olympus E-4xx series dSLRs).

I would like a digital Olympus OM-1 not a gigantic FM

Notice how people were putting on the accessory grips even then?
