I think you are right. I believe most camera designers are men (I don't know that, really) and they design what is right for them. It is the same with cars. When they brought a woman into designing cars she suggested making an adjustable "heel rest" so that women can drive comfortably whether they are wearing high heels or shoes without heels. This the boys wouldn't have come up with. Maybe we need to put Ann, Cheryl, Nicole et.al. into Nikon, Canon and others to contribute to designing cams that will fit the smaller hands of girls.
