With my right hand at rest, I can slip the EM1.2 in and without closing it I can hold it at my side.
I think my doppleganger in Japan was used for modeling.
This feeling alone should be enough to deter me when I start pondering sensor size inadequacies.
I do have my Nikon to compensate this time around. ( :

What sensor size inadequacies? ... ;)

I can hold my E-M1 MkII + MMF-3 + FTs 50-200 dangling from two fingers. Walking around. Simply awesome ergonomics.

Even with the osteoarthritis in my wrists, the E-M1 MkII + 12-100 is a joy to hold.
 
As I was thinking about my old Nikkor 80-200 yesterday as I was shooting the 35-100 (I have both the 2.8 and 4/5.6) it became clear that lens size (as well as selection) is probably the most amazing thing about M43. I can carry the 12-35 & 35-100 with the G9 and I believe that the entire weight is less than that old Nikkor zoom. Quality of those two lenses has always made me smile. So did the Nikkor but what tank. Size does matter....

I love the fact that the old 16mm cine lenses are pretty usable on M4/3 bodies without too much vignette.

Just like many of you, I like the MFT size advantages. My own example is the Oly 150-400. ;-)

You may be thinking of that thing as huge, but when looking at comparable lenses from other makes, it's actually TINY.
The 150-400mm f4.5 looks huge with the lens hood mounted. Take the hood off and the lens itself is quite compact, not a lot larger than the 300mm f4.
