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 GH2 and Olympus E-M1X side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Panasonic GH2 has external dimensions of 124 x 90 x 76 mm (4.88 x 3.54 x 2.99″) and weighs 442 g (0.97 lb / 15.59 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 GH2 and Olympus E-M1X. Panasonic GH2 is 20mm narrower and 57mm shorter than Olympus E-M1X but it is also 1mm thicker.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Panasonic GH2 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 GH2 is significantly lighter (555g ) 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 both Panasonic GH2 and Olympus E-M1X have the same Micro Four Thirds lens mount and Four Thirds sized sensors, lenses will not be a differentiator on total size of the system.
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 GH2.
