You probably think that because you don't own a Leica. Neither do I. But the comparison is of 4/3 to FF...not 4/3 to DSLRs.

With the exception of Leica M rangefinders, when someone refers to FF I think it's a fair assumption that they are talking about FF DSLRs . After all, an $8000 manual Leica M9 rangefinder (body only) is probably as niche of camera as you can get when it comes to FF.

But if you want to talk about size then you'll have to explain how 4/3 is better than APS-C cameras like the tiny Sony NEX series or better than high-end compact.

That's easy. M4/3 is more compact than the Sony NEX series when you consider the complete package (body + lens), and has a lens selection that blows away the Sony NEX system. As for comparing it against a high-end compact, that's easy too because the m4/3 has a lens selection that blows away a high-end compact, and you can change those lenses!
