"small" FF mirrorless camera ... big deal?
May 13, 2014

I don't get it.

As much as I like smaller cameras (or smaller things in general), I don't get the big advantage to getting smaller FF camera like the sweet Sony A7 unless the lenses also get smaller.

Last I checked, the lenses are the larger part of the weight of a tool set. So shaving a full pound (I'm not even sure you get that much) off the camera, really does not make much of a difference if you are going to attach to it a 2 lbs lense!

Is there something I'm not getting?

Is there a way to get significantly smaller FF lense or are we limited by the size of the large sensor?
