My hand size is 7.4", so pretty much spot-on male average. Sounds like you have small hands, a weak grip, or both.neuroanatomist said:[quote author=choosehandsafety.com]Hand sizes for males range from 6.25" to 8.1" with an average hand size of 7.44". Female hand sizes overlap, but are generally somewhat smaller, with an average size of 6.77".
I wrote about this relaxing and recalibrating my hands/habits to learn a new grip recently here:
If anyone finds the A7/A9 body a good fit for an f/2.8 zoom or f/1.4 prime for day long shooting, you must have small hands to tune of 2-3 sigma smaller than mean. There's just no room for your fingers and you need to make an 'iron claw' hold with your index fingers, middle finger and thumb... just like I used to on my T1i with my 24-70 f/2.8L I. Not fun at all. Pass.
