camera size comparison site.

For anyone that hasn't seen this, it is interesting to switch the cameras around and see what there relative size compared to one another is. The K5 makes the whole Canon series look HUGE.
Here I did the K5 to the 7d

I just tried the 645 against the Eos 1d mark IV and I know that the 645 has more depth, but the 1d is 1 BIG camera.

Great site.

I know there is a bit of criticism about the size of the K-01 but: Compare camera dimensions side by side

It is an interesting site, but I wish they included more discontinued bodies as well.

Looking at this comparison:

Compact Camera Meter

I hope they could put a full frame sensor in Marc Newson's bodydesign (even with limited electrnoics compared to the others) making it a great nice little camera

I realize the Canon has a mirror housed in it also, but the relative area Canon uses for FF won't even fit in the K mount diameter, If these Image sizes are accurate.

Wow, though, that's definitely some serious size differences. I don't personally mind a fairly hefty camera body, but especially if you want to put a grip on something, that'd make a difference. Some of those, I wouldn't want/need a grip on, but I basically never take mine off my K20d, and I'd want one for a K-5. (That's just kind of a 'normal sized camera' to me, about like a film body with the smaller winder option on it. ) Takes a while for me to get to the point of 'too much,' but then again, it doesn't need to be bigger than it needs to be.

It doesn't actually have to, y'know? The K mount was originally all full frame on film, remember?

Williunck: You have me confused as to what you are driving at. The K-mount was originally for 35mm film SLR's which is "full frame" for digital cameras now. Therefore, a FF sensor and the needed mirror can be
accommodated in a K-mount digital camera with no problem. Pentax just has to bother to do it. Why they haven't I don't know. They already use Sony's APS-C sensors, so why not their FF ones too? What is the hold up Pentax?

Luckey us it would fit:

I stumbled on this blog online:
http://vaillantmartien.wordpress.com/tag/pentax-k-11-full-frame/

Good plan. Having a camera really small would be a great future.
