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 Leica D-Lux 7 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). Leica D-Lux 7 has external dimensions of 118 x 66 x 64 mm (4.65 x 2.6 x 2.52″) and weighs 403 g (0.89 lb / 14.22 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Canon G5 X and Leica D-Lux 7. Canon G5 X is 6mm narrower and 20mm thinner than Leica D-Lux 7 but it is also 10mm taller.
Here is the back view size comparison of Canon G5 X and Leica D-Lux 7.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Canon G5 X and Leica D-Lux 7.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Canon G5 X is 50g lighter than the Leica D-Lux 7 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither Canon PowerShot G5 X nor Leica D-Lux 7 provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Canon G5 X and Leica D-Lux 7's LCD screens has the same diagonal size of 3".
On the other hand, Canon G5 X sports a Fully Articulated screen
which you can change the angle and position of the screen almost freely, making it possible to shoot from waist or over the head levels, and especially very useful for shooting selfies and video. Leica D-Lux 7's LCD screen is a fixed type which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to G5 X.
