vs
2.2
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. This is the widest aperture available at the 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.

0.10 µm² bigger pixel size. Pixel size is the surface area of each pixel on the camera sensor. Larger pixels can absorb more light. This can result in better image quality and improved low-light performance.
