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

Using the same line of reasoning, there was no reason why most of the current APSC NEX lenses have to be so big, and yet in fact they are, disappointingly.

what are you on about? which sony NEX APS-C lens is disappointing larger than comparable Canon?

It's surprising that someone who so diligently dug out info on obscure MF lenses for the M43 to compare with Canon should be so ignorant to standard E-mount choices.

The point is they are comparable in aperture size.

Using your examples namely Canon 35/2 and Canon 40/1.8,

That was a type, should have been 40 F2.8.

and disregarding premium labelling (Zeiss) and plastic cheapo following your method,

not sure what you are on about. the point for lenses of the same aperture size, FF are not larger than m43.

the NEX primes roughly in this range have what sizes?

they are APS-C , we are talking about FF.

The 24/1.8 is larger and heavier than the 35/2

Correct, thus proving, smaller bodies do nto make smaller lenses.

There is no technological reason why an FF E-mount system should not have compact lenses like the Contax G system or the Leica M system, but we will need to wait and see.

Leica M lenses come with the price of very heavy vignetting.

Vignetting is a corner problem right? What APSC NEX lenses are corner gods on for instance the NEX7?

current NEX lenses do not suffer vignetting to the same degree as Leica lenses, but they do generally suffer from poor design. That however has got nothing to do with the point I was making.
