The only Lynx I've used is the 5000e. To me it seems compact, but my regular cameras for a few years were a motorized Nikon F3 and a Mamiya RB67... I would say the 5000e is roughly comparable in size to a Yashica Electro 35 GSN I had years ago, but I don't have them side by side. I always wanted a Lynx 14 with that fast f/1.4 lens - that camera really IS massive. When I had the Electro 35 I always wanted more manual control.
