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 Leica D-LUX 5 and Leica D-Lux 6 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Leica D-LUX 5 has external dimensions of 110 x 66 x 43 mm (4.33 x 2.6 x 1.69″) and weighs 271 g (0.60 lb / 9.56 oz) (including batteries).

Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Leica D-LUX 5 is 27g lighter than the Leica D-Lux 6 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
