As you have seen, both of the cameras have the same sensor dimensions but not the same MP. You should anticipate the Panasonic FH27 to offer greater detail because of its extra 2 Megapixels. Greater resolution will enable you to crop photos a bit more aggressively. The older FH22 is going to be disadvantaged when it comes to sensor innovation.
