Reasons For

4 Reasons For
4.5MP higher megapixel Edit
The Fujifilm X-T1 has a megapixel of 16.7MP, but the Sony Alpha A7S II is only a 12.2MP digital camera (4.5MP 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.

A bit larger display diagonal Edit
Fujifilm X-T1 is 3" screen, but the Sony Alpha A7S II is only a 2.95" screen digital camera (0.05" smaller). Read more

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.
