Thickness

Looking through this forum, I've heard a few times how some people find the Burj to be too skinny on top. Does anyone have a comparison to illustrate the thickness with other supertalls?

Granted, it's going to look skinny on top when it's complete, but that's mostly due to the sheer magnitude of the total structure, especially when viewed from afar.
