Size and weight are big decision factors when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs.
In this section, we are going to illustrate the Canon G7 X MII and Leica Q side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Canon G7 X MII has external dimensions of 106 x 61 x 42 mm (4.17 x 2.4 x 1.65″) and weighs 319 g (0.70 lb / 11.25 oz) (including batteries). Leica Q has external dimensions of 130 x 80 x 93 mm (5.12 x 3.15 x 3.66″) and weighs 640 g (1.41 lb / 22.58 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front-view size comparison of the Canon G7 X MII and the Leica Q. Canon G7 X MII is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 24mm narrower, 19mm shorter and 51mm thinner than Leica Q.
Here is the back view size comparison of the Canon G7 X MII and Leica Q.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Canon G7 X MII and Leica Q.
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 significantly lighter (321g ) than the Leica Q which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Unfortunately neither the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II nor Leica Q (Typ 116) provides any type of weather sealing in their bodies, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Canon G7 X MII and Leica Q's LCD screens have the same diagonal size of 3.00 inches.
On the other hand, Canon G7 X MII features a Tilting screen
where you can change the angle of the screen to make it easier to shoot from waist or over-the-head levels whereas the Leica Q has a fixed type screen which provides less flexibility in shooting positions compared to G7 X MII.
