If the point of these cameras is small and portability, then why you want to add big lens on it, that kinda nullifies the camera purpose.

I agree with some of the mirrorless cameras, but who says the point of mirrorless is small size?

It is like saying the point of an SLR is to be large and loud.

The point of mirrorless technology cameras is to reduce manufacturing costs and provide what-you-see-is-what-you-get viewfinder along with any video processing functions you can use to add features to that (like focus peaking, zebra stripes for video exposure, etc).
