Default Size difference - DX7 vs DX8

What are the dimensions of the two? I have the (older) DX7 (no "s"), but I am looking into getting a DX8. I'm curious as to how much of size difference it is. The thickness I know but what about width and length? Anyone with side-by-side pics? Thanks!

The last picture in this post shows a DX7 and a DX8 side by side. The thumbsticks are not stock, obviously

It is SO much more ergonomic and comfortable... I can hardly even use my DX7 for simming anymore. It feels lighter too.. but I can't verify that.
