I guess I would have to say that an X-E1 with the 55-200 is way smaller and lighter than my D2x and 70-200 f2.8. It would be nice when someone gets one to have them do a side by side comparison shot with some of the equivalent DSLR systems. All things are relative, it may look funny, but my bad shoulders would greatly appreciate it's compact size and lighter weight.

True, but you'd need a 50-135 f2 for an equal comparison with the 70-200 f2.8. I am not sure it would be much lighter then.

The very excellent Nikon 70-200 f4 is only 200 grams heavier than the Fuji zoom.

About the Leica focal length limitation being a optical viewfinder, yes, you are right. Though I still wonder about balance.
