A bit higher megapixel count Edit
The Fujifilm X-A2 has a megapixel count of 16.3MP, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 is only a 16.05MP digital camera (0.25MP 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.
