Default 5700 wide angle attachment

got to try out the 5700 wide angle attachment (WC-E80).
it seems to weigh about as much as my 80-280 SIGMA zoom lens.
which is ok, since i shoot with a pretty steady hand with even that.
what i don't understand is why it's so much larger than a normal wide angle lens? Granted that it's thankfully cheaper in cost than most Nikon lenses, it's practically double the size of my 24mm Nikkor lens. on the plus side, if i'm shooting a lot of scenics and stuff, it does give the camera an overall hefty/solid feel to it.

Not a gripe or complaint...just an observation and curiosity as to any insights on this new trend that Nikon's taking?

Agree, as a newbie to digicams I was surprised at the size and weight of the wide abgle,, as to the steadiness, I agree 100% it is strangely and extremely comfortable to hold and use .,... Annoying about the flasj though !!
