No, you read that wrong. Mirrorless has nothing to do with the size of lenses. Size of lenses is largely tied to the size of the image sensor or film used. NEX cameras are small, but use aps-c lenses for instance because NEX image sensor is aps-c. A 35mm mirrorless camera would still need large 35mm lenses.

You might like to take a look at the size of the lenses on m4/3's and then compare them to the size of equivalent lenses from 4/3's, which has exactly the same sized sensor, notice anything? Have a think about it.....
