Size and weight is a big decision factor when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs.
In this section, We are going to illustrate Canon G5 X and Canon G7 X MII side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Canon G5 X has external dimensions of 112 x 76 x 44 mm (4.41 x 2.99 x 1.73″) and weighs 353 g (0.78 lb / 12.45 oz) (including batteries).

Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Canon G7 X MII is 34g lighter than the Canon G5 X but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither Canon PowerShot G5 X nor Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.
