Other things being equal (more or less) it leaves me wondering if there are heavy internal components clustered in the left hand side of the S1/S1R camera body.

Maybe a heat sink?

Also: IBIS. Of course: no mirror.

Perhaps Canon just did a better job thinking in terms of mass distribution when they designed the 5DS. It's not like they didn't have a ton of practice...

Back to Tom's comments - I've never even thought about/noticed a change in the left-bias as I go between the S1R & S5. But it makes sense that it affects what people call "balance."
