I understand You always read that people with big hands prefer big cameras, but honestly to me it just feels more comfortable. It's not a tennis ball, I'm not supposed to get my hands completely around it! The point is to get a firm grip, and the weight and size adds to the feeling of firmness.

This is it EXACTLY. I don't have huge hands, but the size and weight of a substantial camera makes my shots feel smoother and more exact.

Heavier cameras spread out the internal vibrations more, reducing the affect on the photos. You will feel it less also in the hand. The other way is to actually reduce the vibrations, such as removing the mirror and or shutter. I also prefer a large camera, it is simply more comfortable, but this has nothing to do with a mirror. The grip is what i hold, and that is not where the mirror is.

Incidentally i also believe electronic shutters are the way of the future. Perhaps i should start a thread on how mechanical shutters are going to be extinct someday, im sure i would get plenty of backlash for that as well. ZOMG the rolling shutter !!!!!!!!!
