There is no reason why sony cannot make lenses the same size or smaller than these Canon SLR lenses.

Using the same line of reasoning, there was no reason why most of the current APSC NEX lenses have to be so big, and yet in fact they are, disappointingly.

There is no technological reason why an FF E-mount system should not have compact lenses like the Contax G system or the Leica M system, but we will need to wait and see.

Unlike Canon/Nikon, Sony specializes in surprises. Canon and Nikon are conducting a battleship arms race and are therefore more predictable, and comfortable for battleship lovers, but Sony could be the one that brings out the aircraft carrier to totally spoil the status quo, and therefore incur the perpetual hatred of battleship romantics for generations to come.

Then the battleship lovers will leave M43 alone, hopefully.
