Canon 60d size : 5.7 x 4.2 x 3.1 in.
Canon 50d size: 5.7 x 4.2 x 2.9 in

These are direct from Canon website. 60d is larger

Am I wrong?

My point is , everybody is talking about it being smaller, and perhaps harder to use for large hands.

Here is the thread that talked about the size. From owners that have access to different XXD bodies, it matches the speculation by a few upon the release news (me included) that it is sized very similarly to the 20D/30D, including weight.

The 60D is "thicker" to accomodate the articulated LCD.

But it feels and looks smaller. If you look closely this is because the camera's "shoulders" slope down quite a bit more than the 50D/40D/etc. Another way of describing it, is that it's less "square". The hot shoe is the same height though. And they are the same width.

It's a little lighter in weight than the 50D. A lot lighter than the 7D (which is actually slightly heavier than 5DII). That might be more important for someone lugging camera and lenses around.

The ergonomics of the body make it feel quite different from any Canon product I've used up to this point--but it is similar in size to a 30D

The difference of you ever noticing a .2" difference in cameras is... well slim. :)

I've seen them in the store, they didn't look small to me. I think there was so much initial disappointment surrounding the 60D, that people were looking for anything to complain about. It's a very capable camera, just like all the cameras in their line-up. I'm not a fan boy but I have shot with everything from the XS to 1DIV. There's not a bad camera in the bunch.
