Considerably more focus points
206 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.
Sizably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
20% faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
Significantly higher maximum light sensitivity
2x higher maximum light sensitivity. With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
Vastly better video recording quality
1080 x 60 fps
720 x 24 fps
3.75x better video recording quality
112 g lighter
Sizably higher optical zoom
3 x higher optical zoom. Optical zoom allows taking close-ups of far away objects easily without interfering with the photographed subject. High optical zoom is often found in high-end pocket cameras and tele-lenses for DSLRs.
Has built-in optical image stabilization
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect vibrations of the camera. The lens and / or sensor move in response, adjusting the optical path. This ensures that any motion is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
Significantly shorter minimum focal length
7 mm shorter minimum focal length. Lenses with a shorter focal length allow you to capture a wider field of view. Anything below 20mm is considered a wide angle lens. These are ideal for landscape or architectural photography.
Considerably longer maximum focal length
77 mm longer maximum focal length. Long focal lengths (>100 mm) let you take close up pictures of things far away from you. These are called telephoto lenses and are good for things like wildlife photography.
Faster photo autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting pictures
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper images.
A shade less body volume
4.21% less body volume
4.80 mm narrower
