I prefer -

http://camerasize.com/compact/#692,594,720,ha,t

It has the same features but no voting. The sizes as seen are actual comparisons so you can visually compare sizes and details between any number of cameras. Hover on the camera for parameters.

Ah yes - better features for side by side comparison. But it doesn't have MMF3 nor most of the four thirds lenses.

I presume you are talking about Camera Size.com rather than four-thirds.org as mentioned in the op.
It is unfortunate that the lens selection in Camera Size is not in alphabetical order, or even optical length order, and you really have to carefully go through the list to find the lens you want, it's easy to miss one. The lens selection is, however, quite substantial.

Yes- CameraSize has better features for comparing size. But when I select "With an adapter" on E-M1 or E-M5 II, it offers only one adapter (a Panasonic one), and when I select that, it offers only four of the old Four Thirds lenses. The Four Thirds site has lots of the old Four Thirds lenses which I use such as the 7-14 f/4, the 12-60 SWD f/2.8 - f/4 and the 50-200 f/2.8 - f/3.5. It would be nice if these could be added to camerasize ...

Ah, now I get you. Sorry, I've never gone to the 'With an adapter' section, mainly because I really don't like using adapters.

I do find the site really very helpful as it has so many cameras to choose from and a heck of a lot of lenses ... but, yes, if you are a fan of the older four thirds lenses then it does lack the selection.
