But when you add a tele the size advantage disappears and becomes an ergonomical disadvantage (using the same sensor size)

First of all, the size advantage STILL exists because it's STILL lighter and more compact compared to the same thing on a DSLR.  Lighter is lighter.  A savings of X grams is still a savings of X grams that you don't have to lug around.

As for any claims of ergonomic disadvantage, this is non-sense because no one *ever* complains about the same body/lens size ratios on DSLRs!  We regularly use *huge* lenses on DSLR bodies that easily dwarf the cameras that they are mounted on, and it's just not an issue with proper holding technique (ie, left hand supporting the big, heavy lens, allowing your right hand to just steer the camera).  Plus, you have to remember that carrying around bigger, heavier, bulkier gear presents its own "ergonomical disadvantages", too.  Try traveling with DSLR gear for 12 or 14 hour days on your feet.  Try shooting a full wedding with DSLR gear all day long, strapped to your body.  I even carry two, sometimes three (!), bodies on me.  You don't think that has its own "ergonomical disadvantages"!  LOL.  I guess gravity doesn't exist where you live.  Hahaha.
