Size: GRD IV + GV-2 vs X-E1

I currently have an X-E1 + the 18mm f/2, and am seriously contemplating replacing it with a GRD IV for street shooting.

Unfortunately, I can't seem to find any GRDIV's on display in my city, so I've been forced to rely on images and places like camerasize.com (unfortunately, they don't have any of the GRD's for comparison either) (so I've been trying to compare the XE1 with some compacts - but I'm not sure if the GRD IV is closer in size to a Canon S100 or to an LX5? Help?)

But, my question is: If I get an external finder such as the GV-2; and ignoring the sensor size difference for a moment;  do you think the decrease in bulk/size I get with the GRD+GV-2 combo vs the XE1 worth the switch?

Thanks.
