Re: Nice, but not practical for most.

So, you compare the bigger model with built in EVF to a non evf camera? given that comparison, it does pretty well without a big viewfinder bump.

Now try that with the J1 and while you are at it compare these specs:

Panny
45-200
Weight 380 g (0.84 lb)
Diameter 70 mm (2.76")
Length 100 mm (3.94")

45-175
Weight 210 g (0.46 lb)
Diameter 62 mm (2.43")
Length 90 mm (3.54")

Nikon
30-110
Weight 175 g (0.39 lb)
Diameter 60 mm (2.36")
Length 61 mm (2.40")

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is 10% (10.3 mm) wider and 11% (6.8 mm) taller than Nikon 1 J1.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is 32% (9.6 mm) thicker than Nikon 1 J1.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 [318 g] weights 15% (41 grams) more than Nikon 1 J1 [277 g] ( inc. batteries and memory card).

They've really failed to capitalize on the potential size advantage at this point though.
