Bodies are color-coded as follows:

Whenever there's a “?” or empty space in the table, I do not know the data. If you have that specific body, or when you have a model not listed yet, and you can provide the data, please contact me and I'll update the table as soon as possible.

Data for announced products should be considered preliminary. Exact data often isn't known until after the actual release. You should not rely on data for announced products to be correct.

The data displayed is for the indicated firmware version. Earlier firmware versions may have lower functionality or performance.
