Even with the Really Right Stuff L-bracket attached, the Sigma DP2 Merrill is notably more compact than the Fujifilm X-E1 with its 18-55m kit lens; the Fujifilm X-E1 is effectively the size of a small DSLR. Well, if you need a zoom you need a zoom. But kudos to Fujifilm for building in a small grip to the X-E1 which feels good to the hand. And the X-E1 can take the Fujinon 18mm f/2, which is much smaller than the zoom.
