4 Reasons For
56% higher megapixel count Edit
The Sony Alpha A7R is a 36.3MP digital camera. That's 20MP higher than the Fujifilm X70 (36.3MP). 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.

55% more total megapixel count Edit
The Sony Alpha A7R is a 36.8MP digital camera. That's 20.1MP more than the Fujifilm X70 (36.8MP).
28% smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Sony Alpha A7R is a 22 maximum aperture digital camera. That's 6 smaller than the Fujifilm X70 (22).
340.00 shots per battery charge Edit
The Sony Alpha A7R takes 340.00 shots per battery charge, however the Fujifilm X70 only takes 330.00 shots per battery charge. Read more

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.
