Size and weight are big decision factors when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs.
In this section, we are going to illustrate the Ricoh WG-6 and Olympus E-M5 II side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Ricoh WG-6 has external dimensions of 118 x 66 x 33 mm (4.65 x 2.6 x 1.3″) and weighs 246 g (0.54 lb / 8.68 oz) (including batteries). Olympus E-M5 II has external dimensions of 124 x 85 x 45 mm (4.88 x 3.35 x 1.77″) and weighs 469 g (1.03 lb / 16.54 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front-view size comparison of the Ricoh WG-6 and the Olympus E-M5 II. Ricoh WG-6 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 6mm narrower, 19mm shorter and 12mm thinner than Olympus E-M5 II. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Ricoh WG-6 has a built-in lens but Olympus E-M5 II doesn't. Once you put a lens on E-M5 Mark II, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of the Ricoh WG-6 and Olympus E-M5 II.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Ricoh WG-6 and Olympus E-M5 II.
Weight is another important factor, especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Ricoh WG-6 is significantly lighter (223g ) than the Olympus E-M5 II 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-M5 Mark II, the total kit will weigh much higher.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Ricoh WG-6 and Olympus E-M5 II's LCD screens have the same diagonal size of 3.00 inches.
On the other hand, Olympus E-M5 II sports a Fully Articulated screen
which you can change the angle and position of the screen almost freely, making it possible to shoot from waist or over-the-head levels, and especially very useful for shooting selfies and video. Ricoh WG-6's LCD screen is a fixed type which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to E-M5 Mark II.
