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

Which for example?

now that the thread has had more input, i see that the OP was talking about equiv DOF etc.  Ok. None of the 1 series lens are equiv.  I concede that.

The target buyers don't know anything about equiv or even care.  In fact, i'd suggest that most people buying small sensored cameras want MORE DOF and are happy with that result.  so, for them, the lens/system are smaller.  For an enthusiast trying to replace a FF dslr, the 1 series is simply not suitable.  It's a good second system.
