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 WG-6 and Leica SL side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Ricoh WG-6 has external dimensions of 118 x 66 x 33 mm (4.65 x 2.6 x 1.3″) and weighs 246 g (0.54 lb / 8.68 oz) (including batteries). Leica SL has external dimensions of 147 x 104 x 39 mm (5.79 x 4.09 x 1.54″) and weighs 847 g (1.87 lb / 29.88 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front-view size comparison of the Ricoh WG-6 and the Leica SL. Ricoh WG-6 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 29mm narrower, 38mm shorter and 6mm thinner than Leica SL. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Ricoh WG-6 has a built-in lens but Leica SL doesn't. Once you put a lens on SL, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of the Ricoh WG-6 and Leica SL.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Ricoh WG-6 and Leica SL.
Weight is another important factor, especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Ricoh WG-6 is significantly lighter (601g ) than the Leica SL 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 SL, the total kit will weigh much higher.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Ricoh WG-6 and Leica SL's LCD screens have the same diagonal size of 3.00 inches.
Unfortunately, both cameras has fixed screens so they don't tilt or flip in directions.
