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 Pentax KP and Canon 80D side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Pentax KP has external dimensions of 132 x 101 x 76 mm (5.2 x 3.98 x 2.99″) and weighs 703 g (1.55 lb / 24.80 oz) (including batteries). Canon 80D has external dimensions of 139 x 105 x 79 mm (5.47 x 4.13 x 3.11″) and weighs 730 g (1.61 lb / 25.75 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front-view size comparison of the Pentax KP and the Canon 80D. Pentax KP is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 7mm narrower, 4mm shorter and 3mm thinner than Canon 80D.
Here is the back view size comparison of the Pentax KP and Canon 80D.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Pentax KP and Canon 80D.
Weight is another important factor, especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Pentax KP is 27g lighter than the Canon 80D 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 also have to take into account the lenses that you will be using with these bodies. Since both Pentax KP and Canon 80D have the same APS-C sized sensor, their lenses for a similar focal length and aperture will be similar in size and weight.
Both the KP and the 80D have weather sealings in their bodies, making them resistant to water and dust.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Pentax KP and Canon 80D's LCD screens have the same diagonal size of 3.00 inches.
Pentax KP features a Tilting-only screen
which is mostly only good for shooting from waist or over-the-head levels. On the other hand, Canon 80D sports a Fully Articulated screen
which is more flexible and useful, especially for taking selfies and video.
