If the point of these cameras is small and portability, then why you want to add big lens on it, that kinda nullifies the camera purpose.

The point for me is not ultimate pocketability, but reduced weight and size while retaining high IQ. Is this not the goal of the NEX system? Leica shows what's possible with short flange distance. The Zeiss 35/2.8 is a good example too.

Care to point me to a Leica 70-200mm f4 Dual Drive AF with OSS for M-Mount? Or an AF one at all? Or a 70-200mm at all? A zoom maybe?

No point in comparing to a Leica in this instance.
