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 Pentax RZ10 and Olympus XZ-10 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Pentax RZ10 has external dimensions of 97 x 61 x 33 mm (3.82 x 2.4 x 1.3″) and weighs 178 g (0.39 lb / 6.28 oz) (including batteries). Olympus XZ-10 has external dimensions of 102 x 61 x 34 mm (4.03 x 2.41 x 1.35″) and weighs 221 g (0.49 lb / 7.80 oz) (including batteries).

Here is the back view size comparison of Pentax RZ10 and Olympus XZ-10.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Pentax RZ10 and Olympus XZ-10.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Pentax RZ10 is significantly lighter (43g ) than the Olympus XZ-10 which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
With its weather sealed body, we believe that RZ10 has a big advantage over XZ-10 which doesn't provide any kind of environmental sealing.
