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 Nikon Z5 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). Nikon Z5 has external dimensions of 134 x 101 x 70 mm (5.28 x 3.98 x 2.76″) and weighs 675 g (1.49 lb / 23.81 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Panasonic S5 and Nikon Z5. Panasonic S5 is 1mm narrower and 4mm shorter than Nikon Z5 but it is also 12mm thicker.
Here is the back view size comparison of Panasonic S5 and Nikon Z5.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Panasonic S5 and Nikon Z5.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Nikon Z5 is 39g lighter than the Panasonic S5 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
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 Nikon Z5 have the same Full frame sized sensor, their lenses for a similar focal length and aperture will be similar in size and weight.
Both S5 and Z5 have weather sealings in their body, making them resistant to water and dust.
