The whole notion that size is irrelevant unless it can "fit in my jeans pocket" is really absurd, and narrow-minded. LOL. There's a lot more to the size issue than merely the "jean pocket" test.

First of all, you are showing a startling incapacity to understand that it isn't just about the camera body and a single lens, it's about being able to carry a camera with a complement of lenses in your bag. Mirrorless lenses are absolutely more compact than DSLR lenses.

really?

i didn't know the world only shot with sub 70mm lenses.

of course looking at 70-200's totally blow your pet theory of them being as you say: absolutely more compact than DSLR lenses.

I guess nikon and canon should stop manufacturing anything about 70mm because clearly no one uses those lenses.

any lens above around 50mm depending on lens design, will show negligible difference in size.
