Reasons For

3 Reasons For
A lot higher megapixel count Edit
The Leica M-P (Typ 240) has a megapixel count of 24MP, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 is only a 16.05MP digital camera (7.95MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

17% shorter Edit
The Leica M-P (Typ 240) has a height of 80mm, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 is a 93.4mm tall digital camera (13.4mm taller).
40mm thinner Edit
Leica M-P (Typ 240) is 42mm deep, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 is an 82mm deep digital camera (40mm thicker).
4 Reasons For
6,400 higher maximum ISO speed Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 has a maximum ISO speed of 12,800, but the Leica M-P (Typ 240) is only a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (6,400 lower).
A lot higher lens magnification ratio Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 has a lens magnification ratio of 1.34x, but the Leica M-P (Typ 240) is only a 0.68x lens magnification ratio digital camera (0.66x lower). Read more

The lens magnification ratio is the ratio between the true size of the object being photographed and the size of the object when projected on to the camera's sensor.

A higher lens magnification ratio is important for macro photography as it allows you to focus on very small object very close to the lens.

45% lighter Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 is a 470g digital camera. That's 210g lighter than the Leica M-P (Typ 240) (470g). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

6.1mm narrower Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 has a width of 132.9mm, however the Leica M-P (Typ 240) is a 139mm wide digital camera (6.1mm wider).
