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 SL and Leica M Typ 262 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Leica SL has external dimensions of 147 x 104 x 39 mm (5.79 x 4.09 x 1.54″) and weighs 847 g (1.87 lb / 29.88 oz) (including batteries). Leica M Typ 262 has external dimensions of 139 x 80 x 42 mm (5.47 x 3.15 x 1.65″) and weighs 600 g (1.32 lb / 23.99 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Leica SL and Leica M Typ 262. Leica M Typ 262 is 8mm narrower and 24mm shorter than Leica SL but it is also 3mm thicker.
Here is the back view size comparison of Leica SL and Leica M Typ 262.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Leica SL and Leica M Typ 262.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Leica M Typ 262 is significantly lighter (247g ) than the Leica SL which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Also keep in mind that body weight is not the only deciding factor when comparing two interchangeable camera bodies, you have to also take into account the lenses that you will be using with these bodies. Since both Leica SL and Leica M Typ 262 have the same Full frame sized sensor, their lenses for a similar focal length and aperture will be similar in size and weight.
With its weather sealed body, we believe that SL has a big advantage over M Typ 262 which doesn't provide any kind of environmental sealing.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Leica SL and Leica M Typ 262's LCD screens has the same diagonal size of 3".
