D7000 body grip too small for me vs. D90

Compared to my D90 the D7000 has a slightly smaller grip for the right hand which makes it uncomfortable for me to hold.
I don’t think I have particularly big hands.

Because of this, the grip doesn’t feel quite as solid and tires my fingers much quicker.

The tips of my fingers get crushed more into the smaller space between the grip and lens forcing me to use an unnatural finger position, hence the uncomfort.
Has anyone else experienced this and solved it in some simple & effective way?
Maybe I could then buy the D7k?

Btw, my colleagues here have already suggested grinding a few mm off the end of my fingers, which I declined to do, so we don’t need to investigate that option
