K20d body comparison

Hello everybody, I guess this would be my introductory thread, as I'm *almost* sold on a K20d, and am excited to be a member of the forum. I've done tons of research and I believe the K20d offers exactly what I'm looking for; however I unfortunately haven't had the opportunity to handle the camera yet. Of course, I've handled a 40D, 50D, as well as Nikon bodies (D60, D80, D90), but I want to get a size comparison. Honestly, I think the 40d is borderline "big", but I personally like that. The D90 feels ok, but I was the owner of a D60 and wasn't a huge fan of the plastic-ey nature of the Nikon line.

What I'm trying to say here is - does anybody have pictures of a K20d body next to a D90/D80 or a Canon 40/50D? From what I understand, the build quality/weight is exactly what I'm looking for - just want to get an idea of size. I've scoured Flickr, Google imagesearch, and even dug around in youtube to see if there's a benchmark I can compare it to. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
