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 Panasonic FZ1000 II and Olympus E-M1X side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. 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). 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).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Panasonic FZ1000 II and Olympus E-M1X. Panasonic FZ1000 II is 8mm narrower and 50mm shorter than Olympus E-M1X but it is also 57mm thicker. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Panasonic FZ1000 II has a built-in lens but Olympus E-M1X doesn't. Once you put a lens on E-M1X, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of Panasonic FZ1000 II and Olympus E-M1X.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Panasonic FZ1000 II and Olympus E-M1X.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Panasonic FZ1000 II is significantly lighter (189g ) than the Olympus E-M1X 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-M1X, the total kit will weigh much higher.
Thanks to the weather sealed body of E-M1X, you can use this camera with more confidence under conditions where there is risk of exposure to water and dust compared to FZ1000 II.
