Size ...

My only point of reference for size, not being a Minolta user in the past, would be the Canon A2 film camera. The blunt pentaprism reminds me of the A2, another journalist at the presentation agreed with me on that, and size-wise, with the grip I'd say it's pretty close to the same.

It's not a small, discrete camera. It's a workhorse pro camera along the lines of the 20/30/40D built to chew it's way through a wide range of assignments reliably, predictably, and with the highest quality. The A700 has the frame rate to do sports, the resolution to do product, the high ISO performance for journalism, in a tough durable body with long-lasting shutter that will ensure that it can do this day in and day out.
My Olympus E510 looks like a spy camera next to it
