Modestly larger sensor
4.55 x 6.17 mm
4.56 x 6.08 mm
1.26% larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
Has a flip-out screen
Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.
Somewhat higher pixel density
7.36% higher pixel density
A little bit higher resolution
0.30% higher resolution
Modestly less body volume
5.90% less body volume
Has a built-in focus motor
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. With it built into the camera, you still have the function when using a lens without its own motor. This allows you to use a wider range of lenses.
37.90 mm shorter
4.70 mm thinner
Has a BSI sensor
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
Has an electronic viewfinder
An electronic viewfinder (or EVF) is a small display showing the image. Benefits of these over optical viewfinders include: they show more of the image, they can be more compact, focusing is easier with digital zoom, and they can also sometimes have extra info on the display, eg. a live histogram.
Substantially greater zoom range
26 x greater zoom range. The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
Has manual shutter speed
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
Explicitly longer maximum focal length
600 mm longer maximum focal length. A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
Has manual exposure
This allows to manually set the exposure.
Shorter minimum focal length
1 mm shorter minimum focal length. A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
Has a silent focus motor built into the lens
Lenses with built-in focus motor focus faster and more quietly than lenses without a focus motor which rely on the camera's body focus motor.
