1. megapixels

2. sensor size

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

25. has an optical viewfinder

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.
