Ricoh GXR A16 and Leica X Vario: Size and Weight Comparisons

Size Data | Size Comparisons | Weight Comparisons


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).


Size Data

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

*) Camera unit mounted on GXR body for Ricoh GXR units

All data taken from the manufacturers' specifications.


Size Comparisons

Note: The rear view of the GXR A16 24-85 is similar to that of the Ricoh GXR A12-50:


Weight Comparisons

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...
