You are using size as your only point

The canon is almost half the weight, much smaller. So obviously it must be the better choice using your logic right?

I said size is one reason. After all, size is the only raison d'etre for MILC to even exist. The difference in size for the bodies I linked is huge.

Not as huge a difference as the Canon SL1 which is much smaller.

The K-5 II has comparable or better features (better sealing, metal body) and a much lower price than even cheap FF's. Don't pretend the D600 ($2000) is near the cost of K-5 II ($1000)

I didn't say that. I said as prices come down on FF, less people will want APSC. APSC did not exist for size difference, it was cost.

I don't want a FF DSLR. All cameras are compromises. APS-C is the sweet spot for me, in cost, features and performance.

But if they made a FF in the SL1 body for less money you would buy it right? So would I, but I agree it is all compromise, as FF comes down in price the differences become very much smaller.
