Reasons For

3 Reasons For
A lot higher megapixel Edit
The Sony Alpha A7R has a megapixel of 36.3MP, but the Sony DSC-RX10 is only a 20.2MP digital camera (16.1MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Expert reviews are significantly better
The Sony Alpha A7R has an average expert review score of 89% based on 104 reviews, whereas the Sony DSC-RX10 has an average rating of 41% (based on 1 review).
