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.

17g lighter Edit
The Fujifilm X-T1 has a weight of 390g, whereas the Sony Alpha A7R is a 407g digital camera (17g heavier). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

350.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s Edit
The Fujifilm X-T1 is a digital camera that takes 350.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s, whereas the Sony Alpha A7R only takes 340.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s. 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.

6 Reasons For
56% higher megapixel Edit
The Sony Alpha A7R is a 36.3MP digital camera. That's 20MP higher than the Fujifilm X-T1 (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 megapixels Edit
The Sony Alpha A7R is a 36.8MP digital camera. That's 20.1MP more than the Fujifilm X-T1 (36.8MP).
82% smaller maximum aperture number Edit

190g lighter lens weight Edit
The Sony Alpha A7R has a lens weight of 120g, however the Fujifilm X-T1 is a 310g lens weight digital camera (190g heavier).
3.5mm smaller lens diameter Edit
The Sony Alpha A7R has a lens diameter of 61.5mm, whereas the Fujifilm X-T1 is a 65mm lens diameter digital camera (3.5mm bigger).
