Is it just me - RE: the pending new Nikon mirrorless release...

OK - I realize this is off topic, but when I saw all the hoopla related to this new pending Nikon mirrorless release, the first thing that caught my eye was the huge size of this new pending camera.  I mean to say it appears to be as large as a FF DSLR and in some cases, based on some projected image comparison, approaches the size of the Fuji GFS medium format camera.

To me one of the main causes for shifting to a mirrorless design were the decreased size and weight factors of the system.  Why would I want to transition to a mirrorless system that was literally the same size (and almost the same weight) of a FF DSLR system?  Just to get rid of a mirror and then proclaim that it's mirrorless?  Is it just me thinking this - I mean what's the point really of just side stepping into another system sans mirror, yet having the same size of something you may have just left?

I have little doubt that the operational capabilities of this new Nikon release will be second to none - but sizewise...?  Just sayin' (and askin').
