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 G9 and Fujifilm HS50 EXR side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Panasonic G9 has external dimensions of 137 x 97 x 92 mm (5.39 x 3.82 x 3.62″) and weighs 658 g (1.45 lb / 23.21 oz) (including batteries). Fujifilm HS50 EXR has external dimensions of and weighs 808 g (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Panasonic G9 and Fujifilm HS50 EXR. Panasonic G9 is 4mm shorter and 54mm thinner than Fujifilm HS50 EXR but it is also 2mm wider. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Fujifilm HS50 EXR has a built-in lens but Panasonic G9 doesn't. Once you put a lens on G9, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of Panasonic G9 and Fujifilm HS50 EXR.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Panasonic G9 and Fujifilm HS50 EXR.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Panasonic G9 is significantly lighter (150g ) than the Fujifilm HS50 EXR 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 G9, the total kit will weigh much higher.
With its weather sealed body, we believe that G9 has a big advantage over HS50 EXR which doesn't provide any kind of environmental sealing.
