Leica M (Typ 240): Size and Weight Comparisons

Size Data | Size Comparisons | Weight Data

Having purchased a Leica M (Typ 240), I asked myself how this camera fares in comparison with the Leica X Vario and the Ricoh GXR with M-mount expansion unit size-wise and weight-wise. Therefore, I prepared some quick photos that helped me answer this question more easily. I also supply some size and weight data.

Note: This page includes the Ricoh GR (as an alternative for the pocket).

All data according to the manufacturers' specifications.


Size Comparisons

Leica X Vario (No EVF)

The following size comparisons are primarily meant to compare the camera bodies. The Leica M can be fitted with lenses of various sizes - here a 50 mm lens is used. Since I own only one EVF, I do not use it here in the size comparisons.

Leica X Vario Ca. 650/680 g / 22.9/24 oz (without/with battery)
Ricoh GXR with M-Mount Expansion Unit Camera unit only: Approx. 170 g; when mounted on camera body: 370 g(battery and SD memory card included)

The Ricoh GXR body weighs 160 g (according to Ricoh)

A fully equipped Leica M (Typ 240) including battery, SD card, EVF, Peak Design shoulder strap, halfcase, and Zeiss Sonnar 50mm f/1.5 weighs 1060 g (1067 with lens cap). For comparison, the Leica X Vario equipped with a battery, an SD card, the EVF, the protector, the lens hood without cap, and the shoulder strap weighs 760 g with the Leica shoulder strap, and 772 g with the Peak Design shoulder strap (including two anchors).
