Clearly, both of those cameras enjoy different megapixel count and different sensor measurements. The T Type 701 featuring a tinier sensor will make achieving shallow DOF trickier and the Sony A7c will deliver more detail having its extra 8 Megapixels. Greater resolution will make it easier to crop photos far more aggressively. The older T Type 701 is going to be behind with regard to sensor innovation.
