Size and weight is a big decision factor when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs.

Leica X-U has external dimensions of 140 x 79 x 88 mm (5.51 x 3.11 x 3.46″) and weighs 635 g (1.40 lb / 22.40 oz) (including batteries).

Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Leica X-U and Panasonic ZS100's LCD screens has the same diagonal size of 3".
On the other hand, Leica X-U sports a Fully Articulated screen
which you can change the angle and position of the screen almost freely, making it possible to shoot from waist or over the head levels, and especially very useful for shooting selfies and video. Panasonic ZS100's LCD screen is a fixed type which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to X-U.
