Size and weight is a big decision factor when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs.
In this section, We are going to illustrate Olympus E-M10 IV and Panasonic FZ1000 II side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Olympus E-M10 IV has external dimensions of 122 x 84 x 49 mm (4.8 x 3.31 x 1.93″) and weighs 383 g (0.84 lb / 13.51 oz) (including batteries). Panasonic FZ1000 II has external dimensions of 136 x 97 x 132 mm (5.35 x 3.82 x 5.2″) and weighs 808 g (1.78 lb / 28.50 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Olympus E-M10 IV and Panasonic FZ1000 II. Olympus E-M10 IV is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 14mm narrower, 13mm shorter and 83mm thinner than Panasonic FZ1000 II. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Panasonic FZ1000 II has a built-in lens but Olympus E-M10 IV doesn't. Once you put a lens on E-M10 IV, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of Olympus E-M10 IV and Panasonic FZ1000 II.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Olympus E-M10 IV and Panasonic FZ1000 II.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Olympus E-M10 IV is significantly lighter (425g ) than the Panasonic FZ1000 II which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Again, this comparison may not be very useful in real life as we are comparing the weight of a camera with a built-in lens to the body-only weight of an interchangeable lens camera. Once you put a lens on E-M10 IV, the total kit will weigh much higher.
Unfortunately neither Olympus OM-D E-M10 IV nor Panasonic Lumix DC-FZ1000 II provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Olympus E-M10 IV and Panasonic FZ1000 II's LCD screens has the same diagonal size of 3.00".
Olympus E-M10 IV features a Tilting only screen

which is more flexible and useful especially for taking Selfie shots and video.
