APS-C becomes a size disadvantage as you get into longer-range zooms. The Fuji 55-200 is gigantic compared to the Olympus 40-150, which covers the same range. Of course, it's also a better lens.

I agree that the size difference is not substantial enough to matter for standard zooms and most primes.

Agreed, which is why I personally question the logic of buying a small system and then wanting long focal length, large aperture lenses for it. Once you get past 100-135mm you should be looking at an SLR.

But I'm not a birder/hiker/wildlife photographer and my general need for long teles is pretty non-existent so I probably don't understand.

I'm a mountain and outdoor photographer and love the weight saving..... even with the 55-200. The weight of my previous 5dmkii and 100-400L, 17-40L is more than 500g more than the X Pro, 14mm, 35mm, 60mm, 18-55 & 55-200.

In reality, I take the 14, 18-55 & 55-200 when climbing in the alps, Andes or the UK so I have a nice weight saving without losing out on quality! Camera and lens attached to backpack and a lens in each side pocket of the backpack, easily accessible when moving. That lens line up and quality is perfect..... for me anyway!!

Everyone has different needs and it is great that Fuji has provided options for people. I left Sony Nex because of the below par lens capabilities, especially long lenses.
