Have you compared these two cameras side by side?



  • Olympus OM-D E-M5 is 9% (11.9 mm) narrower and 4% (3.8 mm) shorter than Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3.
  • Olympus OM-D E-M5 is 49% (40.1 mm) thinner than Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3.
  • Olympus OM-D E-M5 [400 g] weights 27% (150 grams) less than Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 [550 g] (*inc. batteries and memory card).

too bad they don't have a side view of the GH-3, but the top view is the really instructive one.
