As you can see, both the cameras enjoy different megapixels and different sensor sizing. The G16 due to its larger sensor is going to make shooting shallow depth of field less difficult and the Kodak M580 will render greater detail due to its extra 2MP. Greater resolution will also enable you to crop images far more aggressively. The newer G16 provides a benefit in sensor technology.
