Oftentimes, its difficult to picture the contrast between sensor sizes purely by going over a spec sheet. The picture here should offer you a clearer sense of the sensor measurements in the T900 and TF1.

As you can see, the two cameras come with the identical sensor size but different MP. You should expect to see the Sony TF1 to offer greater detail because of its extra 4MP.
