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 X2 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 X2 has external dimensions of 124 x 69 x 52 mm (4.88 x 2.72 x 2.05″) and weighs 345 g (0.76 lb / 12.17 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Canon G5 X and Leica X2. Canon G5 X is 12mm narrower and 8mm thinner than Leica X2 but it is also 7mm taller.
Here is the back view size comparison of Canon G5 X and Leica X2.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Canon G5 X and Leica X2.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Leica X2 is 8g lighter than the Canon G5 X but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither Canon PowerShot G5 X nor Leica X2 provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors. If weather sealing is a must-have feature for you, check these sections: Top Compact Cameras with Weather Sealing
LCD Screen Size and Features
Canon G5 X's 3" LCD screen is slightly larger than Leica X2's 2.7" screen.
Moreover, 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. On the other hand, Leica X2 has a fixed type screen which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to G5 X.
