Does anyone know if the heads are the same physical size as the 24s

Just received my copy of the MT-26EX-RT. The flash heads look to be the same size as the MT-24EX, but the flash tube and the reflector look bigger -I'll check later when I get home. The controller is really small! In the past I looked for a compact flash to take with me when I don't want to carry a lot of gear, but now I don't think I'll need to. The MT-26EX's controller looks like it's about half the volume of the one on the MT-24. Now to build a diffuser for it. The Cannon supplied diffuser (looks like a Sto-Fen on steroids) are included inside the pouch that the flash comes in and there are storage pockets for them as well as the lens flash mount. One word of caution concerning the storage pouch: It closes with a small piece of Velcro, and the carrying handle is at the top on the other end of the opening. So be sure to secure the Velcro or you'll dump the flash onto the floor. The construction quality of the MT-26 seems very high, but not so much the pouch.

That was my one big gripe with the 24 that the control box was so big, is it any lighter though? I'll probably order one soon, take some flash head measurements, adjust my diffusers to fit, then send it back within the 14 days!
