Substantially 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.
Clearly 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.
Appreciably better video recording quality
1080 x 60fps
720 x 24fps
3.75x better video recording quality
A tad less body volume
4.21% less body volume
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.
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.
Explicitly greater zoom range
3x 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.
Distinctly longer maximum focal length
77mm 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.
Significantly shorter minimum focal length
7mm 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.
