But, once you get rid of the mirror, it would be somewhat smaller. See, for instance this rangefinder 21mm f/1.4 lens
http://en.leica-camera.com/photography/m_system/lenses/5917.html
This lens has the following dimensions
Length: 66 mm
Largest diamater: approx. 69.5 mm
Weight: approx. 580 g

This compares with the Nikon 24mm f/1.4 has the following dimensions:
Length: 88.5mm
Diameter: 83mm
Weight: 620 g

The Leica is not an autofocus lens with built-in motor though, right?

Correct.
