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 Panasonic S5 and Leica SL side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Panasonic S5 has external dimensions of 133 x 97 x 82 mm (5.24 x 3.82 x 3.23″) and weighs 714 g (1.57 lb) (including batteries). 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).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Panasonic S5 and Leica SL. Panasonic S5 is 14mm narrower and 7mm shorter than Leica SL but it is also 43mm thicker.
Here is the back view size comparison of Panasonic S5 and Leica SL.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Panasonic S5 and Leica SL.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Panasonic S5 is significantly lighter (133g ) 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 Panasonic S5 and Leica SL have the same Leica L lens mount and Full frame sized sensors, lenses will not be a differentiator on total size of the system.
Both S5 and SL have weather sealings in their body, making them resistant to water and dust.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Panasonic S5 and Leica SL's LCD screens has the same diagonal size of 3".
On the other hand, Panasonic S5 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 SL's LCD screen is a fixed type which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to S5.
