Just curious what size your camera is. Here are the three categories:

Large - Any of the OMDs, GH4, G6, etc.

Medium - GX7, P5, PL2, etc.

Small - PM2, PL7, GM1, etc.

Other - I don't know what would go there but there's always going to be someone saying "other"! :redface:

G6 + 25mm f1.4(most of the time) so big. Though by conventional standards it is still remarkably small. I find that it is the perfect balance between ergonomics and size/weight.

Large - GH3
Medium - GX7

I consider both of these to be small, at least compared to ones I used to use.

Large - G5, although a G6 fit my hands better as it is that little bit bigger

Medium - E-PL5, although not much bigger than the EPM or the GF3 & 5, it is quite weighty due to it's very solid build, rather carry it in a bag than a jacket pocket.

Small - GM1

My 'big one' is the Oly E-M5, but without grips and stuff I do not think of it as big. It gets a bit bigger by my love of primes, and the fact that I usually have at least 2 primes with me.
And I have an E-PM2 for those occasions where I prefer not to be 'the photographer'. It is not that small, I am still in doubt whether the Pany GM 1 would not have been better. But the lack of viewfinder and the small zoom (I use the Oly EZ standard zoom) are enough to look like any other casual shooter.

I voted large because I have an EM-5, but I was expecting to hit either small or medium after moving from a DSLR!

I have an E-M10. Since it is an OMD, I voted large.
But I'd rather call it mid-size...

The E-M10 is definitely NOT large. It's a tiny fraction of the size and weight of a GH4, for example.

And my OM-D E-M1 is considerably smaller than the DSLRs I used to use.

I call the GH3 and GH4, EM1 and gripped up EM5 supersized. They're too fat for me..

My bare EM5 is large, my EPL5 is medium, and my EPM1 is small.

"Small" all the way with two GX1 bodies.

I always figured I would likely go Fuji or Sony A7 before I would go large. If I am carrying the larger camera I may as well take advantage of the larger sensor.

I have and E-M1, E-M5 & E-M10. Anyone who actually handled these cameras would NOT put them in the same size group.

Why is this thread even in the Olympus forum when Panasonic cameras are also listed?

People who reference the size of µ4/3 cameras to DX or FF DSLRs need to brush up on their reading skills. Only µ4/3 cameras are listed.

If one wants to consider all still cameras ever made, then FF DSLRs are small compared to 20" x 20" Polaroid view cameras.
