Leica M (Typ 240) and Leica X Vario: 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 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.


Size Data

Camera Size*: W x H x D Remarks
Leica M (Typ 240) 138.6 mm x 80 mm x 42 mm EVF not included
Leica X Vario 133 x 73 x 95 mm / 5.24 x 2.87 x 3.74 in EVF not included

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.

Weight Comparisons

Camera Weight (according to the manufacturer)
Leica M (Typ 240) Ca. 680 g (with battery)
Leica X Vario Ca. 650/680 g / 22.9/24 oz (without/with battery)

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).
