From time to time, people ask how the Ricoh GXR A16 camera unit fares size-wise and weight-wise with respect to the Leica X Vario. While there are some photos on this site showing the camera sizes, I thought that I prepare some quick photos that help answer this question more easily. I also supply some size and weight data (using our kitchen scale for the weight).
|Camera||Size*: W x H x D (cm)||GXR Camera Unit Only||Remarks|
|Leica X Vario||133 x 73 x 95 mm / 5.24 x 2.87 x 3.74 in||EVF not included|
|Ricoh GXR Body||113.9 mm x 70.2 x 28.9 mm||EVF not included|
|Ricoh GXR A16 24-85||113.9 mm × 74.7 mm × 98.5 mm||71.4 mm × 70.5 mm × 93.3 mm||EVF not included|

All data taken from the manufacturers' specifications.
Note: The rear view of the GXR A16 24-85 is similar to that of the Ricoh GXR A12-50:
|Camera||Weight (according to the manufacturer)||Weight 1||Weight 2||Weight 3||Weight 4|
|Leica X Vario||Ca. 650/680 g / 22.9/24 oz (without/with battery)||760 g||724 g||743 g||772 g|
|Ricoh GXR A16 24-85||Camera unit only: Approx. 350 g
When mounted on camera body: Approx. 550 g （battery and SD memory card included)
|n.a.||582 g||600 g||628 g|
The Ricoh GXR body weighs 160 g (according to Ricoh)
When taken up with the hands, the X Vario and the GXR A16 24-85 do not make a big difference to me with respect to their weights. This changes, however, when they hang on my shoulder...
