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?

A7+FE35 fits in my coat pocket and for travel and landscape gives me great quality. Find me a FF DSLR that i can do the same with and we'll talk.

In fact find me a DSLR that I can fit in my pocket and we'll talk.

Focus on what you have, not on what you don't.

To be fair, I used to put my Pentax APSC DSLRs in my coat pocket and there is not that much difference in size between the A7 and KX.

The KX grip sticks out a bit otherwise they are not that far apart (KX is a bit heavier too).

Now after using the A7 (and GX7), the KX grip feels too big.
