Im quite sure a ff mirror box would add at least quarter of an inch to overall size.

What would that mean? I guess I would start dropping my expensive spanking new ff camera if I switched from mirrorless.

Are you seriously arguing that APS-C vs FF makes no difference?!?! LOL. I think I'll just let the absurdity of that comment speak for itself. Hahaha.

sure. so tell me, just what exactly would be different in the SL1 if it had a full frame sensor.

three things: mirror box and actual mirror and sensor assembly.

I'd call that a pretty trivial adjustment to the overall size of the unit.

but i'll wait for your profound engineering, camera design and marketing knowledge to educate me

Don't forget the pentamirror and finder
