I had a brief look at some the mirrorless systems at my local camera store. The sony NEX with lens still seems a bit large. Even the OMD M5, seemed a little bulkier for my preference. They are still an improvement on my 600d thou

while you get some size savings in the body the real savings come from the lens.  They are significantly smaller than APSC lens.  For example, I can stuff an EM-5, 14 2.5, 25 1.4, 45 1.8, either the 60 2.8 or 14-150 or 75-300 along with the fl-300r in a thinktank speed changer v2.  For me to carry the equivalent lenses with APSC OR FF, I would need a back pack.  The only real downsides are the AF for fast moving targets and DOF control.
