Explicitly larger sensor
Comment

Distinctly more focus points
Comment

Appreciably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
Comment
12 fps
vs
11 fps
9.09% faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

Has an optical viewfinder
Comment
Yes
vs
No
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.

Faster photo autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting pictures
Comment
Yes
vs
No
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper images.
anonymous
36
A lot greater zoom range
Comment
4 x
vs
3.8 x
0.20 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.

32
Appreciably longer maximum focal length
Comment
112 mm
vs
90 mm
22 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.

Wider aperture at minimum focal length
Comment
1.4
vs
2
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
anonymous
33
Has manual shutter speed
Comment
Yes
vs
No
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
anonymous
31
Has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Comment
Yes
vs
No
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
anonymous
31
Measurably longer exposure time
Comment
250 s
vs
30 s
220 s longer exposure time. When the camera shutter is open for a long time, more light is absorbed by the sensor. You can use this slow shutter speed to produce vivid night time photography, or capture the trajectory of moving objects such as motorway traffic.

30
Notably shorter minimum focal length
Comment
24 mm
vs
28 mm
4 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 two-stage shutter
Comment
Yes
vs
No
A two-stage shutter is good for taking photos like a pro; apply pressure to the button in order for the lens to focus, and then press it fully to capture the photograph.
