That said, the F3 is not a small camera. A Leica is a small camera. An OM is a small camera.
If you say so...

I'd agree with you if you were comparing an F5 or an F6 to an M - but the F3 is actually a fairly small body (it's not petite, but it's not large). I don't have issues with it's balance personally.
