Just an interesting observation from the Camera Size website when comparing the Canon 5D Mark II vs. Leica M9 as an example:

  • Canon EOS 5D Mark II is 9% (0.5in.) wider and 42% (1.3in.) taller than Leica M9.
  • Canon EOS 5D Mark II is 102% (1.5in.) thicker than Leica M9.
  • Canon EOS 5D Mark II [938 g] weights 60% (353 grams) more than Leica M9 [585 g] (*inc. batteries and memory card).

If you've never seen this site, check it out. It's pretty cool! 8-)

Of course, if you use the Canon L lenses... Some of them alone could eclipse the M9! In our Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH review there's an interesting picture of just such a scenario showing the EF 50mm f/1.2L USM lens next to the M9/Summilux combo:

I can relate! My other shooter is a Canon 1D Mark IIn, which when compared against the M9 is even more shocking (it's heavier than the Mark IV though same dimensions):

  • Canon EOS-1D Mark IV is 12% (0.7in.) wider and 96% (3in.) taller than Leica M9.
  • Canon EOS-1D Mark IV is 116% (1.7in.) thicker than Leica M9.
  • Canon EOS-1D Mark IV [1230 g] weights 110% (645 grams) more than Leica M9 [585 g] (*inc. batteries and memory card).
