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 TL2 and Panasonic GX8 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Leica TL2 has external dimensions of 134 x 69 x 33 mm (5.28 x 2.72 x 1.3″) and weighs 399 g (0.88 lb / 14.07 oz) (including batteries). Panasonic GX8 has external dimensions of 133 x 78 x 63 mm (5.24 x 3.07 x 2.48″) and weighs 487 g (1.07 lb / 17.18 oz) (including batteries).

Here is the back view size comparison of Leica TL2 and Panasonic GX8.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Leica TL2 and Panasonic GX8.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Leica TL2 is significantly lighter (88g ) than the Panasonic GX8 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 Leica TL2 has an APS-C sized sensor and Panasonic GX8 has a smaller Four Thirds sensor, Panasonic GX8's lenses for a similar focal length and aperture will generally be lighter and smaller than the Leica TL2 lenses.
Thanks to the weather sealed body of GX8, you can use this camera with more confidence under conditions where there is risk of exposure to water and dust compared to .
LCD Screen Size and Features
