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 RX100 V and Panasonic LX10 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Sony RX100 V has external dimensions of 102 x 58 x 41 mm (4.02 x 2.28 x 1.61″) and weighs 299 g (0.66 lb / 10.55 oz) (including batteries).

Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Sony RX100 V is 11g lighter than the Panasonic LX10 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V nor Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX10 (Lumix DMC-LX15) provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.
