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 M Edition 60 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 M Edition 60 has external dimensions of 139 x 80 x 42 mm (5.47 x 3.15 x 1.65″) and weighs 680 g (1.50 lb / 23.99 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Canon G5 X and Leica M Edition 60. Canon G5 X is 27mm narrower and 4mm shorter than Leica M Edition 60 but it is also 2mm thicker. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Canon G5 X has a built-in lens but Leica M Edition 60 doesn't. Once you put a lens on M Edition 60, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of Canon G5 X and Leica M Edition 60.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Canon G5 X and Leica M Edition 60.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Canon G5 X is significantly lighter (327g ) than the Leica M Edition 60 which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Again, this comparison may not be very useful in real life as we are comparing the weight of a camera with a built-in lens to the body-only weight of an interchangeable lens camera. Once you put a lens on M Edition 60, the total kit will weigh much higher.
Thanks to the weather sealed body of M Edition 60, you can use this camera with more confidence under conditions where there is risk of exposure to water and dust compared to G5 X.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Canon G5 X and Leica M Edition 60'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 M Edition 60's LCD screen is a fixed type which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to G5 X.
