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 ZS1 and Leica V-Lux 20 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Panasonic ZS1 has external dimensions of 103 x 60 x 33 mm (4.06 x 2.36 x 1.3″) and weighs 229 g (0.50 lb / 8.08 oz) (including batteries). Leica V-Lux 20 has external dimensions of 103 x 60 x 33 mm (4.06 x 2.36 x 1.3″) and weighs 218 g (0.48 lb / 7.69 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Panasonic ZS1 and Leica V-Lux 20. In this case, we can see that Panasonic ZS1 and Leica V-Lux 20 have the exact same height, width and thickness.
Here is the back view size comparison of Panasonic ZS1 and Leica V-Lux 20.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Leica V-Lux 20 is 11g lighter than the Panasonic ZS1 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS1 (Lumix DMC-TZ6) nor Leica V-Lux 20 provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors. If weather sealing is a must-have feature for you, check these sections: Top Compact Cameras with Weather Sealing
LCD Screen Size and Features
Leica V-Lux 20's 3" LCD screen is slightly larger than Panasonic ZS1's 2.7" screen.
Unfortunately, both cameras has fixed screens so they don't tilt or flip in directions.
