Compare camera dimensions side by side

Compared to the GX8 here, the largest micro43. Not entirely tiny but still as a dSLR.

Here's a K-5 comparison instead:

I did the K1 comparison and it looks tiny! I think I understand this camera a bit better now - it would certainly make a great travel and street camera with some DA LTD primes.

Outlines are based on images taken from camerasize.com. I think we can stop with the nonsense like "it's as big as K-3/K-5/K-1/my cat".

But my cat is long gone. A bald eagle swooped down one day and took her away.

Now I have nothing for comparison.

Thanks OP for the link.
I like 'em small, my K-S2 is smaller and I like it a lot.
I do like the flip style display on the K-P better though.

3 camera on theses outline have the same size, the small difference being irrelevant and the K1 is noticably bigger, but not by a huge amount.

So yet it is as big as K5/K3. Not K1.

Bigger than my K30. Now I have an excuse to use with the wife if I upgrade . " Gee Honey my camera was too small, Bigger is better !" Think that will work ?
