Weight is another important factor, especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Panasonic FP7 is significantly lighter (100g ) than the Ricoh G900 which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Thanks to the weather-sealed body of the G900, you can use this camera with more confidence under conditions where there is risk of exposure to water and dust compared to the FP7.
