Hi folks,

I came across a new, to me, site which rather neatly allows one to compare the size of different cameras side by side. Useful if your chosen reviews don't provide such images.

By way of an example and having sold my Canon 5D Mark II here's a comparison between it and one of the possible contenders for it's replacement:
Hopefully that link is permanent. Lenses not included, of course, but the size difference is quite startling and not just from the front as one can discover by selecting other views in the panel on the left. A graphic depiction of why I'm downsizing!

Bob.

Thank you Bob. I'm finding it useful already and have saved it.

this is a bit more realistic

Nex 7 vs 550D

My favourite is NEX-7 vs G1 X, particularly viewed from the top. Even the 550D looks huge from above!

Bob.

Yes, but the G1 X includes a lens. :)
