As you can tell, both of those cameras have different resolutions and different sensor measurements. The M200 using its bigger sensor is going to make achieving shallower DOF simpler and the Canon M200 will produce extra detail because of its extra 8 Megapixels. Higher resolution will make it easier to crop photographs a bit more aggressively. The more recent M200 provides an edge when it comes to sensor tech.
