it would be a better comparison if you didn't have the lens hood reversed on one lens and no hood on the other - I would suspect the lens would look smaller without the hood.

I may get flamed for this, but this is a better/fair comparison of 2 lenses with the same range and no lens hoods to make one look bigger.,289.336,ha,t

Really? - updated:,487.393,482.412,ha,t

Why did you add in a lens with a larger/longer focal range and that has optics made for close-up focusing. It also has a special manual focus ring that the other lenses don't have. Do you see why it is not comparable, especially when there is another lens that matches the specs of what you want to compare?

If you would like to discuss this, please start a thread in the Open forum.

Why can you replace the OP's 12-40 PRO lens with the lower grade 12-35 and-almost-same size lens, whereas why can I not replace the OP's non-humped GX7 with the humped EM1 camera?

Do you not see what you are doing?

If you want to go non-humped, please start comparing against the Nex-6 or Nex-7 cameras. They are MUCH smaller than the GX7 camera. And then there is the E1670Z/4 lens for the Nex- cameras which has much longer reach, but it not that large either. Alas, it is not in the camera-sizes database...

What exactly is your point?
