Size and weight are big decision factors when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs.

Sony RX100 IV is 1g lighter than the Sony RX100 V but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V nor Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV provides any type of weather sealing in their bodies, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.
