Other manufacturers have already shown that a super-zoom for a mirrorless body isn't all that small at all..
There is no reason Canon has to make the body any larger than anyone else just use the same EF mount.
As for small lenses we can snap on the new 40mm (and what I am sure will be a few more to come) or any of the other small primes.
When the time comes for a bigger zoom, I would prefer to use any of the L lenses I have now (at their full AF/Metering functionality) than wait for some new hybrid mount super zoom that is going to extend out like a telescope anyway....
Canon - 5DmkII - 40D - Rebel XSi - AE1 - F1 : 3 Ls
Nikon - D700 - D300s : 2 Ns

Well I thought the new Olympus om-d em5 was actually pretty interesting. If canon comes out with one which rivals it, with a much bigger sensor as the oly is a tiny four thirds, it could be a big win. Wether I'd be interested in one or not is a completely different matter though.
