Let's look at reality.

Here are a couple FF cameras with 70-200mm F/4 lenses.  Notice how the mirrorless camera combo is really not smaller.  Then notice how the Micro43 F/2.8 camera/lens looks.

Now let's look at shorter lenses.  Here is the 55mm F/1.8 mirrorless lens vs. the DSLR with the 50mm F/1.8 lens.  Now I am sure the Zeis is higher quality, though the Canon is very good, but right now it is not and there are no smaller cheaper options.

Here is a 40mm F/2.8 vs. 35mm F/2.8 comparison too.

And finally kit zooms (although the Canon is 35mm longer).

At this time there are no smaller FF mirrorless lenses, and the packages end up being similar in size to current DSLRs...the same size so many are trying to get away from!
