Difficult to judge if it could be smaller with these specs. But I'm surprised (comparing with some other cameras) there wasn't even room for an EVF ... I guess that's not so much because there wasn't any space left, but more likely because it allows Canon to extract some extra money from the customers ;-(

Other cameras you are comparing to don't have an F2 zoom designed for a 1.9x crop sensor!

I know the bright lens is a big part of the weight / volume. But there is a lot of camera body outside the 'lens area' and the II is not much smaller than the I version, despite removing the optical viewfinder. Maybe a top quality internal EVF would be asking to much given the volume, but I really think this is a business decision to enable 'upselling'.
