143
Considerably more focus points
Comment
45
vs
9
36 more focus points. The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

Appreciably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
Comment
5fps
vs
3.9fps
28.21% faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

Sizably longer battery life
Comment
1800shots
vs
850shots
950shots longer battery life. CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.

38
Somewhat more viewfinder coverage
Comment
100%
vs
98%
2% more viewfinder coverage. With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.

Significantly faster flash X-sync
Comment
0.00333333s
vs
0.005s
1.50x faster flash X-sync. Flash synchronization is defined as the firing of a photographic flash coinciding with the shutter admitting light to the image sensor. In general, faster flash sync speeds are better if the photographer needs to flash-fill subjects that are backlit and wants to avoid motion blur, or wants to increase depth of field by using a high aperture.

32
Has dual card slots
Comment
Yes
vs
No
It has two memory card slots, allowing you to store more photos without switching cards. This is particularly useful on long shoots when you need more space.
