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.

what are you on about? which sony NEX APS-C lens is disappointing larger than comparable Canon?

It's surprising that someone who so diligently dug out info on obscure MF lenses for the M43 to compare with Canon should be so ignorant to standard E-mount choices.

Using your examples namely Canon 35/2 and Canon 40/1.8, and disregarding premium labelling (Zeiss) and plastic cheapo following your method, the NEX primes roughly in this range have what sizes? The 24/1.8 is larger and heavier than the 35/2 and the 35/1.8 is larger and heavier than the 40/1.8. QED really. Even the slow macro is not really compact compared to the Canon pancake. That's all the E-mount primes in this range covered.

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.

Leica M lenses come with the price of very heavy vignetting.

Vignetting is a corner problem right? What APSC NEX lenses are corner gods on for instance the NEX7?
