Higher megapixel count Edit
The Fujifilm X-T1 has a megapixel count of 16.3MP, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 is only a 12.8MP digital camera (3.5MP 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.

12% higher display resolution Edit
The Fujifilm X-T1 has a display resolution of 1,040,000 pixels, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 is only a 921,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (119,000 pixels lower).
24% larger viewfinder screen size Edit
