Fujifilm X100F vs Sony RX1R II Sensor Comparison

Typically, its difficult to visualise the contrast in sensor sizing only by checking out a spec sheet. The visual here may provide you a better sense of the sensor dimensions in the Fujifilm X100F and RX1R II.

As you can see, both of the cameras posses different resolutions and different sensor sizing. The Fujifilm X100F using its smaller sensor will make achieving shallower depth of field more difficult and the Sony RX1R II will produce greater detail with its extra 18 Megapixels. Higher resolution will also make it easier to crop photographs somewhat more aggressively. The more recent Fujifilm X100F will have a benefit with regard to sensor tech.
