You don't seem to understand that people will take better tools for the same price even if they don't need it. The same argument was frequently made about computers for the last decade, that people don't need anything faster than what existed. Guess what, faster and better computers were manufactured and they cost the same or cheaper than those before them and people are buying them even those who don't need extra performance, but also many found that they can use that extra performance for tasks they never did before.

Amen! More will always win if the price is right... And in this case the product will not get that much bigger anyway.

The difference in size between Micro Four Thirds bodies and lenses and regular entry-level DSLRs is already alarming.

A move to FF would only make the size differences we see now bigger.

Have you read this thread? This myth has been debunked again and again. Think about film days, practically every camera was FF, from tiny Canon Elf to large Canon EOS-1. We'll see the same diversity with FF sensors. If we were discussing cell phone or smaller digital cameras then small sensor size would matter, but for those sized in the range from Elf to EOS-1 it doesn't. And the fact that FF sensor removes the technical limitation of the smaller sensors at the same (eventually) price point will naturally lead to the death of smaller sensor formats.

There's a nice slow lens, and a not overly small mirrorless.
