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 Sony RX1 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). Sony RX1 has external dimensions of 113 x 65 x 70 mm (4.45 x 2.56 x 2.76″) and weighs 482 g (1.06 lb / 17.00 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front-view size comparison of the Canon G7 X MII and the Sony RX1. Canon G7 X MII is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 7mm narrower, 4mm shorter and 28mm thinner than Sony RX1.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Canon G7 X MII and Sony RX1.
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 (163g ) than the Sony RX1 which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Unfortunately neither the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II nor Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 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 Sony RX1'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 Sony RX1 has a fixed type screen which provides less flexibility in shooting positions compared to G7 X MII.
