As you can plainly see, both the cameras have got the exact same sensor measurements but different resolution. You should expect to see the Sony A6600 to show greater detail due to its extra 8 Megapixels. Greater resolution will also make it easier to crop pics much more aggressively. The more aged T Type 701 will be disadvantaged when it comes to sensor innovation.
