Re: 7D is more comfortable, however...

And at 6'1" and 200 lbs, I find the 7D too big and clumsy, and the 5D Just Right. Since you then apparently fall in the 7'+ and 300 lbs+ "hunk" category or something, I think that needs to be somewhat qualified.

I suspect it has to do with manual dexterity. If you're clumsy and inept, the 7D is better. If you have decent fine manipulation and control of your limbs, the much more subtle and nuanced 5D will suit you better.
