Pardon me in advance if this is a silly question, anyway...

I'm new to the group, just signed on, and just received my new D100 this past weekend. Something intrigued me regarding the D100's metering and I decided to compare it to my F100. Using the same lens on both bodies and metering on identical subject, it appears the D100 is a couple of stops slower than the F100. Is it because the size of the CCD is smaller than 35mm film? Smaller surface, less light registering?
