Having purchased a Leica M (Typ 240), I asked myself how this camera fares in comparison with 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.
|Camera||Size*: W x H x D||GXR Camera Unit Only||Remarks|
|Leica M (Typ 240)||138.6 mm x 80 mm x 42 mm||EVF not included|
|Ricoh GXR Body||113.9 mm x 70.2 x 28.9 mm||EVF not included|
|Ricoh GXR M-Mount Expansion Unit||120 mm × 70.2 mm × 45.7 mm||79.1 mm × 60.9 mm × 40.5 mm||EVF not included|

All data according to the manufacturers' specifications.
