Do large lenses make mirrorless cameras pointless?

Not just volume

What stands out the most to me when using the EM5 as opposed to a full size DSLR, is how much thinner it is. It doesn't stick out nearly as much when you have it slung over your shoulder. Not just lighter, far less obtrusive.

Equipped with one of the fast primes like the 45 1.8, it's a tiny package, smaller than photos of it would indicate.

This is one of those things that you can't really tell from a chart or spec sheet. You really have to use one to appreciate the difference. The smaller cam doesn't demand as much of your attention, and doesn't draw as much attention to you.

It's the same capability without most of the hassle.
