Panasonic G95 vs Pentax K-7 Sensor Comparison

As you can tell, the 2 cameras come with different resolutions and different sensor sizes. The G95 due to its smaller sensor is going to make getting shallower DOF harder and the Panasonic G95 will provide more detail as a result of its extra 5.3 Megapixels. Higher resolution can also enable you to crop pictures a good deal more aggressively. The younger G95 should have an edge when it comes to sensor technology.
