Small huh

I genuinely wonder why the NEX cameras are able to be that much thinner than the GX7. I mean, let's ignore the handgrip and the eyepiece, just purely in terms of the camera body itself the NEX is a fair little bit thinner.

They have the same tilting screen, both have a flash, etc. Why is the NEX 6 thinner? Shouldn't it be the other way around?

I went from a Panasonic G2 to a NEX-7 and when the guy came out with the NEX-7, I just said "What the ....... heck is that !!" How on earth did they get a 24 meg APS-C sensor in that thing, but they did. It was an eye opener for sure. Still amazes me.

All the best.
