It's actually smaller. Close to the D90 in size. But it feels much more 
substantial having a magensium alloy body in part. I like the dual card slots 
too. The count it shows is for the card it's on. So when one card runs out, the 
countdown goes down to zero, but then it automatically switches to the second 
card (if set to use second card as overflow) and the count jumps back up. You 
can also have it write the same file to both cards, or RAW in one and JPEG in 
the other. Whatever you want.

I also have it set to write videos to the second card. Which is handy. So far 
my only criticism is the mode dial is easy to change accidentally. Just gotta 
watch what the camera's set to in the viewfinder.


Now the trumpet summons us again--not as a call to 
bear arms, though arms we need--not as a call to 
battle, though embattled we are--but a call to bear 
the burden of a long twilight struggle year in and 
year out 'rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation' 
--a struggle against the common enemies of man: 
tyranny, poverty, disease and war itself.
