Canon 7D vs Nikon Df Overview
Here is a comprehensive comparison of the Canon 7D and Nikon Df, both Advanced DSLR digital cameras by manufacturers Canon and Nikon. The sensor resolution of the 7D (18MP) and the Df (16MP) is very well matched but the 7D (APS-C) and Df (Full frame) feature different sensor sizes.Coronavirus is affecting the sensor business
The 7D was launched 5 years before the Df and that is quite a significant gap as far as tech is concerned. Each of the cameras come with the identical body type (Mid-size SLR).
Before diving in to a more detailed comparison, below is a quick summation of how the 7D grades vs the Df in terms of portability, imaging, features and an overall rating.

Canon 7D vs Nikon Df Sensor Comparison
Usually, its difficult to see the difference between sensor measurements just by reading a spec sheet. The visual below may give you a stronger sense of the sensor sizes in the 7D and Df.
As you can see, both of the cameras have got different megapixels and different sensor measurements. The 7D using its tinier sensor will make getting shallower DOF more challenging and the Canon 7D will offer you more detail with its extra 2MP. Greater resolution can also let you crop photos much more aggressively. The older 7D is going to be behind with regard to sensor tech.
