I'm certain Sony could make a NEX camera with an E-M5 sized body, the problem the NEX system has is that the lenses cannot be that small because of the APS-C sensor. So while your body might be no larger your system will be quite a bit larger.

Not at all.

For lenses of comparable aperture, FF lenses are smaller.

Compare:

Voigtlander 45 F0.95 vs Canon 85 F1.8

Voigtlander 25 F0.95 vs Canon 50 F1.8

Voigtlander 17.5 F0.95 vs Canon 35 F2

Panasonic 20 F1.7 vs  Canon 40 F1.8.

There is no reason why sony cannot make lenses the same size or smaller than these Canon SLR lenses.
