2 Reasons For
27.1MP higher megapixel Edit
The Pentax 645Z has a megapixel of 51.4MP, however the Nikon D750 is only a 24.3MP digital camera (27.1MP 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.

User reviews are slightly better
Based on 209 user reviews, the Pentax 645Z has an average review score of 98%, but the Nikon D750 has an average rating of 97% (based on 768 reviews).
