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 Sony A9 and Leica M Typ 262 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Sony A9 has external dimensions of 127 x 96 x 63 mm (5 x 3.78 x 2.48″) and weighs 673 g (1.48 lb / 23.74 oz) (including batteries). Leica M Typ 262 has external dimensions of 139 x 80 x 42 mm (5.47 x 3.15 x 1.65″) and weighs 600 g (1.32 lb / 23.99 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Sony A9 and Leica M Typ 262. Leica M Typ 262 is 16mm shorter and 21mm thinner than Sony A9 but it is also 12mm wider.
Here is the back view size comparison of Sony A9 and Leica M Typ 262.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Sony A9 and Leica M Typ 262.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Leica M Typ 262 is 73g lighter than the Sony A9 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 Sony A9 and Leica M Typ 262 have the same Full frame sized sensor, their lenses for a similar focal length and aperture will be similar in size and weight.
With its weather sealed body, we believe that A9 has a big advantage over M Typ 262 which doesn't provide any kind of environmental sealing.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Sony A9 and Leica M Typ 262's LCD screens has the same diagonal size of 3".
On the other hand, Sony A9 features a Tilting screen
where you can change the angle of the screen to make it easier to shoot from waist or over the head levels whereas the Leica M Typ 262 has a fixed type screen which provides less flexibility in shooting positions compared to A9.
