Maybe you're right but currently it's not significantly smaller at all, nor are the lenses... (especially the superzoom movie-lens)

I think that 30-100 is significantly smaller. Anyway, Nikon probably needs time to get good at manufacturing this smaller stuff--certainly it should be possible to make these things smaller.

I also think that probably the low-end Nikon DSLRs will get an EVF first, possibly while simply keeping the normal DX geometry and lens-distance and so on.

yet another system (besides 1 and DX) seems unlikely to me... but who knows.

If the sensor stays the same size, it's not quite a new system since existing DX glass would work perfectly with an adaptor. In fact, long glass probably need not be updated at all since I don't think the shorter registration distance helps with long lens size. I guess they could call it mDX
