I stand corrected! I looked again at the specs, more closely this time, and you're absolutely right. Approximately the same size as the D80 and the D90; bit lighter (with battery) than the D80 and noticeably lighter than the D90, but still in their weight-class. Chunky little geezer!

It appears that the extra heft (compared to its cousins the D40 et. al.) comes from the swivel screen. That makes it even thicker (from back to front) than the D80! A bad thing for people who like their SLRs tiny, but a very good thing for people with big hands.

Thanks for pointing that out.
