4 Reasons For
20MP higher megapixel Edit
The Sony Alpha A7R has a megapixel of 36.3MP, whereas the Fujifilm X-E2s is only a 16.3MP digital camera (20MP 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.

19.2 smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Sony Alpha A7R is a 22 maximum aperture digital camera, whereas the Fujifilm X-E2s is only a 2.8 maximum aperture digital camera (19.2 bigger).
Seven times smaller minimum aperture number Edit
The Sony Alpha A7R has a minimum aperture number of 2.8. That's 19.2 smaller than the Fujifilm X-E2s (2.8).
13% higher magnification Edit
The Sony Alpha A7R has a magnification of 0.71x, however the Fujifilm X-E2s is only a 0.62x lens magnification ratio digital camera (0.09x lower). Read more

The lens magnification ratio is the ratio between the true size of the object being photographed and the size of the object when projected on to the camera's sensor.

A higher lens magnification ratio is important for macro photography as it allows you to focus on very small object very close to the lens.
