6 Reasons For
A little higher megapixel count Edit
The Fujifilm X-P has a megapixel count of 16.3MP, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 is only a 16MP digital camera (0.3MP 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.
