A mirrorless thin FF body that looks like the Nex-series don't make much sense considering the size of the lenses.

Just look at the Nex with the relatively small 18-200mm attached, besides looking ridiculous, that is not an ergonomic system with such small grip and no balance between body and lens.

I mostly agree, the limiting factor is the physics of glass lenses. We'll have to come up with something totally game changing in the lens department first. Like liquid lenses or Fresnel lenses or something.

But, when you have a large-ish lens on a small body, like the NEX with 18-200, don't you just basically hold and balance the whole shmear with your left hand and only operate it with your right? Seems like not such a big deal?

I'd like a digital full frame Pentax MX please,
