And now the XT1 is there, a nice little camera, weathersealed and quite responsive. But still not up to professional standards and still to small for my hands.

The XT1 is actually no smaller than many high end SLRs form the 70s and 80s. I have a Contax 139 with is about the same size. The legendary Olympus OM1 was a similar size.

This idea that professionals have to use monsters like Nikon D4s is actually a relatively recent phenomenon. Even medium format film cameras with good lenses didn't come close to the size and weight of a Nikon D3/4 or even D700 or Canon 5D with 70-200 f/2.8.

Professionals use whatever suits best, not necessarily the biggest.
