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-M1X and Sony NEX-6 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Olympus E-M1X has external dimensions of 144 x 147 x 75 mm (5.67 x 5.79 x 2.95″) and weighs 997 g (2.20 lb / 35.17 oz) (including batteries). Sony NEX-6 has external dimensions of 120 x 67 x 43 mm (4.72 x 2.64 x 1.69″) and weighs 345 g (0.76 lb / 12.17 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Olympus E-M1X and Sony NEX-6. Sony NEX-6 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 24mm narrower, 80mm shorter and 32mm thinner than Olympus E-M1X.
Here is the back view size comparison of Olympus E-M1X and Sony NEX-6.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Olympus E-M1X and Sony NEX-6.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Sony NEX-6 is significantly lighter (652g ) than the Olympus E-M1X which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Also keep in mind that body weight is not the only deciding factor when comparing two interchangeable camera bodies, you have to also take into account the lenses that you will be using with these bodies. Since Sony NEX-6 has an APS-C sized sensor and Olympus E-M1X has a smaller Four Thirds sensor, Olympus E-M1X's lenses for a similar focal length and aperture will generally be lighter and smaller than the Sony NEX-6 lenses.
With its weather sealed body, we believe that E-M1X has a big advantage over NEX-6 which doesn't provide any kind of environmental sealing.
LCD Screen Size and Features
