being a 2+yr mirrorless shooter (and never used a DSLR), I often get comments like "nice photos, why don't you get a DSLR?" Sometimes I try explaining the sensor equivalence to most DSLRs therefore similar image quality (and then I get the "huh?" look), while other times I just get lazy and say DSLRs are too big. What might be the most sensible & informative way of explaining myself?

Kev,  it reminds me of something similar that Ricoh owners get:

"What brand of camera is that?"

"A Ricoh"

"Oh" (puzzled look)  Usually too stunned to ask the inevitable "why don't you get a proper camera?"

As a NEX owner talking to those that only know dslr cameras "as the best" you will understand those that are equally mystified on why anyone would want to use a Rioch.  Most Ricoh owners have given up trying to explain why they use them.  All crazy fools apparently.
