Canon 20Da vs Fujifilm X-T2 Sensor Comparison

Often, it is very tough to visualize the difference in sensor sizing merely by viewing specifications. The photograph here may provide you a clearer sense of the sensor sizes in the 20Da and X-T2.

Plainly, the 2 cameras enjoy the same exact sensor sizing albeit different megapixels. You should count on the Fujifilm X-T2 to provide you with greater detail as a result of its extra 16 Megapixels. Higher resolution can also make it easier to crop shots far more aggressively. The older 20Da will be behind in sensor innovation.
