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 Ricoh G900 and Leica M-E Typ 220 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Ricoh G900 has external dimensions of 118 x 66 x 33 mm (4.65 x 2.6 x 1.3″) and weighs 247 g (0.54 lb / 8.71 oz) (including batteries). Leica M-E Typ 220 has external dimensions of 139 x 80 x 37 mm (5.47 x 3.15 x 1.46″) and weighs 585 g (1.29 lb / 20.64 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front-view size comparison of the Ricoh G900 and the Leica M-E Typ 220. Ricoh G900 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 21mm narrower, 14mm shorter and 4mm thinner than Leica M-E Typ 220. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Ricoh G900 has a built-in lens but Leica M-E Typ 220 doesn't. Once you put a lens on M-E Typ 220, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of the Ricoh G900 and Leica M-E Typ 220.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Ricoh G900 and Leica M-E Typ 220.
Weight is another important factor, especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Ricoh G900 is significantly lighter (338g ) than the Leica M-E Typ 220 which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Again, this comparison may not be very useful in real life as we are comparing the weight of a camera with a built-in lens to the body-only weight of an interchangeable lens camera. Once you put a lens on M-E Typ 220, the total kit will weigh much higher.
Thanks to the weather-sealed body of the G900, you can use this camera with more confidence under conditions where there is risk of exposure to water and dust compared to the M-E Typ 220.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Ricoh G900's 3.00" LCD screen is slightly larger than Leica M-E Typ 220's 2.5 screen.
Unfortunately, both cameras has fixed screens so they don't tilt or flip in directions.
