Categorizing all mirrorless into one group is silly, since sensor sizes also vary within mirrorless making everything a moot point. With that being said, it's not always about camera size. MFT is what i bought into after using 4 DSLRs from 2 other brands, all apsc. While only 2 equivalence stops smaller than FF, MFT offers a huge reduction in lens length. To me, having a shorter overall system, physically shorter, is far more advantageous than it being lighter. Imagine having a lens that stuck out 2 feet, it would be cumbersome and unwieldy. Going the opposite and getting shorter, it is easier to maneuver, to pack, everything is better. 2 stops isn't a lot to lose for this advantage.
