Really neat website!

(always wanted to compare a Sony NEX vs Olympus PEN)

18-55 yeah the mirrorless are nice and compact. However, I personally *never* use 18-55. My walkaround lenses tend to be 150-200 mm zoom lenses.

which gets you this:

(edit: screwed up links).

So wow, when you take into account body size, Sony NEX and Olympus PEN are largely the same size, despite Pen having a smaller sensor + smaller lenses.

But for 200mm (or equivalent) zoom, the size is roughly the same as a DSLR.

Since IMO the annoying part of cameras isn't the weight so much as the bulk.
