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 Panasonic S5 II 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). 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).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Panasonic S5 and Panasonic S5 II. Panasonic S5 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 1mm narrower, 5mm shorter and 8mm thinner than Panasonic S5 II.
Here is the back view size comparison of Panasonic S5 and Panasonic S5 II.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Panasonic S5 and Panasonic S5 II.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Panasonic S5 is 26g lighter than the Panasonic S5 II 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 Panasonic S5 II 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 S5 Mark II have weather sealings in their body, making them resistant to water and dust.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Panasonic S5 and Panasonic S5 II's LCD screens has the same diagonal size of 3.00".
Both cameras feature Fully Articulating screens
where you can change the angle of the screen to make it easier to shoot from waist or over the head levels. Fully articulating screens are also useful for taking Selfie shots and video.
