I had to shoot something on film, so I took my LX, after all thous years, it seemed somewhat close to the K5 in size and in weight too, but that's all.
Here they are, next to each other, the K5 + grip + DA 21mm Ltd (which is almost a 35 mm on FF) and the LX + winder + SMC-A 35 mm F 2.8.
See the evolution in the ergonomics?
