Why can you replace the OP's 12-40 PRO lens with the lower grade 12-35 and-almost-same size lens, whereas why can I not replace the OP's non-humped GX7 with the humped EM1 camera?

There is no Sony Ax w/o a hump at the moment. So you can make the switch one way but not the other.  If the goal is to compare the smallest you can purchase in MFT vs. FF, then the A7 is the only option.

If you want to go non-humped, please start comparing against the Nex-6 or Nex-7 cameras.

The 24-70 lens is quite different in FOV on those cameras.

And then there is the E1670Z/4 lens for the Nex- cameras which has much longer reach, but it not that large either. Alas, it is not in the camera-sizes database...

That's also a reasonable comparison, just a different one.
