The lens size has always been the NEX series's main problem. Also there are very few good lenses which doesn't help either. It's size is quite reasonable if you're using a pancake prime lens but anything else, it becomes quite large. To get the best out of the camera, you most likely need to go with Zesis lenses, which cost you an arm and a leg.

If you already have a FX camera, going with DX isn't gonna give you much of a size advantage. The low light performance isn't that much worst then a D300. Certainly similar or pretty close to my old D90.

A D3300 would be half the weight as a D800.  That might be enough for some people.  But you are right that it doesn't come close to the V3.  Ultimately you run into the same lens size issue with DX as you do with the NEX.

Nikon positioned the CX system in a unique way in terms of the overall compactness and speed of the system.  It is something that could continue to live on even if DX went fully mirrorless in the future.  They positioned it a unique way and they are pricing it accordingly.  Much of the debates rage around how many people value it's uniqueness.
