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 Panasonic S5 II and Leica M Typ 262 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Panasonic S5 II has external dimensions of 134 x 102 x 90 mm (5.29 x 4.03 x 3.55″) and weighs 740 g (1.63 lb / 26.10 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 the Panasonic S5 II and the Leica M Typ 262. Leica M Typ 262 is 22mm shorter and 48mm thinner than Panasonic S5 II but it is also 5mm wider.
Here is the back view size comparison of the Panasonic S5 II and Leica M Typ 262.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Panasonic S5 II 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 (140g ) than the Panasonic S5 II 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 also have to take into account the lenses that you will be using with these bodies. Since both Panasonic S5 II 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 the S5 Mark II has a big advantage over the M Typ 262 which doesn't provide any kind of environmental sealing.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Panasonic S5 II and Leica M Typ 262's LCD screens have the same diagonal size of 3.00 inches.
On the other hand, Panasonic S5 II 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. Leica M Typ 262's LCD screen is a fixed type which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to S5 Mark II.
