It can't be as small (slim) as film SLRs used to be (for above mentioned reasons).
Yes, nice example. If we take away the back LCD screen (which film cameras did have), we save already more than half of that space in the back. One can look at various tear-downs on lensrentals or ifixit, one notices all that extra stuff that wouldn't really have to be there - a LCD viewer could be only in the viewfinder in the future.
Also, note the protruding eye-piece. These things got more "comfortable". In the old days, you had the plastic rubber thingy sticking around the eye piece, that could be pushed almost flat. This is gone these days, now we are stuck with a protruding hard piece, as the SL1 image shows.

I’m sorry for my late reaction. My initial message was not clear and only Claus Borisbg and partly Photonus tuch it in.
I was really wonder who really needs this FF bodies and razor-sharp 1,4 primes
It's for those artists that want to have only the eyes of the person in the top left corner (or choose your preferred other corner) in a crowd sharp, and the rest blurred... ;-)
