To sum up, the 2 cameras feature different megapixel count and different sensor measurements. The G1 X having a smaller sensor is going to make achieving shallow DOF more difficult and the Fujifilm X100F will provide you with more detail because of its extra 10MP. Higher resolution can also make it easier to crop photographs way more aggressively. The older G1 X will be behind in sensor technology.
