5D2, 40D, XTi, all felt fine in my hands. I think that despite the small size of the Rebels and Nikon entry-levels, they're still well-designed even for large hands. The 5D2 is about as large as I want in a camera (not that I would turn down a 1D Mark IV, I think I could make do ).

I agree that overall, the entry-level bodies aren't that bad. I can't stand my dad's D50, though. My fingers always bottom out on the other side of the grip (it's too shallow), which is really uncomfortable.

I hold my camera with my pinky finger under the camera, it's not because the lack of room, but I just find it's more stable, and comfy.

After shooting with an old 80's film SLR for 6 months, I don't mind that I have to sometimes wrap my little finger under the body, or that the grip doesn't quite fill my hand.

Surprisingly though, despite the generic boxy shape of those old SLR's, the ergonomics were actually pretty good.

The weight got me. I had no idea they were that heavy. All that metal, been used to my plastic D5000 for a while now.

80's cameras just looked better.

But then again, I'm rockin a turntable and speaker cabinets from the early 70's. I also think my bike from the 80's looks cool. I think there is a chance I might be biased in this opinion.

There's a new DSLR that looks just like an SLR. I forget who makes it.

So that was a useless post, lol. I think it's Olympus or Pentax though.

Lol, I was rocking some vintage Harmon/Kardon and Akai receivers for a while until they died. Still have my electric blue with white and pink highlights Trek 850 mountain bike, though! It's older than I am!

My bike died recently The matainance got away from me and the front bracket as it is apparently called got twisted in the frame as the bearings wore out. Sad day.
