It is impressive but there are cameras who have done this before with 1'' sensor and reportedly good results.

That's a good point. Once you have a lens that never needs to come off the camera, why have an interchangeable lens camera?

For me, it's about having a small "modular" system. I can take the camera hiking and never change the lens. Then, as we turn into a pub, I put a small prime on and take group pictures in low light.

Other days, I might just want to challenge myself creatively and only walk around with a prime, limiting my compositions to one final length. Or I want to go birding with a long lens. All with one small camera that I know in and out.

I honestly don't get people who constantly switch lenses while in the field. The sirs is probably long gone before you even opened the bag.
