One of the main advantage (maybe the biggest) of mirrorless system is the smaller size.

Cameras are much smaller than DSLR.

But I saw that leneses are almost the same size as DSLR crop size.

ie Sony 18-200 E-mount for NEX-7 camera is almost the same weigh and size that Nikon 18-200

so the size of the lens cancel the whole advantage of the system.

You will end with a small camera but still with a bag of 2-3 lenses of current DSLR size or almost.

Am I right ?

Have a look at an Olympus E-PM2 with a 14-42mm lens on it. It is smaller than the NEX system and has received very good ratings at DXOMark. The lenses available for the M43 system are far greater than the NEX offerings in lenses.
