Re: you have a narrow-minded view of the benefits of compact size

only for lens designs that are less than the registration distance plus working distance of the lens - which is why the 40mm pancake lens could be developed on the EF mount.

so again, it's not a one size fit all solution, and only effects a majority of lenses that by nature are not the largest in a working kit anyways.

the biggest benefit to these (assuming larger sensor MILC's) are prime lenses or zooms under the nominal registration distance of the larger DLSR cameras. (ie: 16-35,10-22,etc,etc). once you get around the DSLR registration distance and above, the differences are minor. consider there's hardly any savings in size to the 24-70 FE's versus the 24-70 canon. and certainly not for 70-200.

The savings really are just for the working few that work with primes or ultrawides - which is why partly it's consumer adaptation is fairly low. the longer lenses either don't even exist and/or if they do (18-200mm for sony E mount) they are ungainly and awkward.

the only place that seems to do well for a kit size is the m43's and Nikon 1. (partly the reason I think Nikon made the RIGHT choice on sensor size, and sony and canon has made the wrong choices) is that the IQ is atypically "good enough", and the kits are much smaller regardless of focal length.

Wow, you're really getting desperate, scraping at the bottom of the barrel, re-treading the same old arguments, aren't you? LOL. The fact remains that once you load up your camera bag with gear, the mirrorless gear user still ends up with a noticeable reduction in size and weight. Just try it out for yourself.

nope, they wouldn't. i normally carry with a full kit with a 24-70L and a 70-200/4L, 100mm macro, 24-105L and usually a few small primes, and a smaller M.

wouldn't make a difference. the world doesn't revolve around under 50mm lenses that work with a shorter registration distance.  is that a unrealistic kit? no actually that's pretty realistic.

I'm desperate that's funny .. you're in the Canon M forum, you don't even have the camera .. and you're simply trolling looking for attention. that sounds more desperate to me.

it's funny how you miss constructive dialog and attempt to belittle anyone that may have a counterpoint argument or point to make.
