Fujifilm X100V vs Sony RX1 Sensor Comparison

Typically, it's hard to imagine the gap between sensor measurements merely by going over specifications. The photograph underneath will offer you a much better sense of the sensor dimensions in the Fujifilm X100V and RX1.

Plainly, both of those cameras feature different megapixel count and different sensor measurements. The Fujifilm X100V with its tinier sensor is going to make getting bokeh more challenging and the Fujifilm X100V will deliver more detail using its extra 2 Megapixels.
