maybe i'm slow, but the 1 series lenses sure look smaller to me. much smaller.

INV writes about the same focal length and aperture (and making some simplifications to make his point).

You look at the lenses with the fov in mind (normal lens, wide angle lens, telephoto lens…)

If you use the lenses to make pictures and you have a certain framing and persective in mind, then yes the lenses you will need for that are smaller.

If you compare same focal lengths and same apertures you will notice that same apertures and same focal lengths are the same. Not that this matters to most photographers, but if it feels good to know that 30 mm is 30 mm - fine.
