The DSLR mirrorbox makes it impossible to make a really compact SWA prime (relatively bulky retrofocus design required). However, the pancake (S)WA primes on mirrorless are usually not the best quality (in the corners).

Both systems have their strengths and weaknesses.

I have a Pentax-M 20mm f/4 (designed for FF) which is pretty small and light. Subsequent versions were faster at f/2.8 but much bigger and more expensive.
