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 Sony A6500 and Sony A6100 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Sony A6500 has external dimensions of 120 x 67 x 53 mm (4.72 x 2.64 x 2.09″) and weighs 453 g (1.00 lb / 15.98 oz) (including batteries). Sony A6100 has external dimensions of 120 x 67 x 59 mm (4.72 x 2.64 x 2.32″) and weighs 396 g (0.87 lb / 13.97 oz) (including batteries).

Now lets look at the top view comparison of Sony A6500 and Sony A6100.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Sony A6100 is 57g lighter than the Sony A6500 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
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 Sony A6500 and Sony A6100 have the same Sony E lens mount and APS-C sized sensors, lenses will not be a differentiator on total size of the system.
With its weather sealed body, we believe that A6500 has a big advantage over A6100 which doesn't provide any kind of environmental sealing.
