Let's Adapt This Sony User's Mindset
7

The quote below is from a Sony user considering the A7c.  I feel the same way about my GX8, especially when I have it in a small messenger bag with the 25 1.7 and the 42.5/1.7.

"I am looking at this camera because, if it must have a stupid description, it is “exit level”. The smaller the better, without compromising image quality, is what I have been striving for to exit the fading world of the long-toothed dinosaur dslr.

I no longer want to carry around with me everywhere a camera bag the size of a small aircraft carrier and the weight of a millstone. I want something light and convenient and something I can slip into a pocket other than a phone camera, something that will deliver the image quality I want. And after forty years of taking pictures I know what I want."

Slipping the camera into a pocket may be a stretch, but we seem to have lost the idea of "smaller and good enough" which has been the mantra of the consumer camera market since Kodak made the Brownie.
