I hope that is not the real FE 70-200. There is no advantage over a small DSLR.

How do you propose that they make a smaller 70-200mm f4 internal zoom?

Canon and nikon are smaller. Check diameters and see it could be smaller.

Totally insignificant differences.

A small difference in diameter equates to a larger difference in size due the nature of diameter vs. 3 dimensions.   So could the Sony be smaller, yes.  What is more significant is the focus ability of a DSLR over the A6000 which is either close to or behind the Nikon 1.  The Nikon 1 is a step behind DSLRs. I advocate keeping a NEX 6 or 7 or A6000, but don't spend $1500 on this lens.  Get a manual focus lens or get a DSLR and 70-200mm lens.

Post this question in the open forum to be fair if you wish and we can see what everyone says.

So, you suggest carrying a DSLR in addition to a mirrorless system in order to save a wee bit of diameter on one lens. Good plan.
