That doesn't mean anything though. Look at the current DP-M design, no way that new battery is going in that same body without the body getting thicker and the thing being quite a chunk.

Your turn it sideways (or diagonal) and add a grip bulge in the front like every other camera.  Or keep the small battery as default but add support for a larger or dual-battery grip.

Yes the overall design of the new body is in theory thicker, but that's only because of all the angles and the longer lens housing. In reality the actual body of the new camera is thinner.

If it does not fit in smaller bags or pockets, it's not practically thinner.

Personally I think the new body is much nicer than if they had just blown out the back of the current DP camera, which would have been the lazy design choice.

Perhaps.  Would you like to bet that the next generation DP Cinco-de-Mayo totally abandons this design?
