16MP sensor improvements?

Rather significant, actually, although YMMV applies

The 16MP sensor shows remarkable advantages in dynamic range (almost 2 f-stops !) and roughly 1 f-stop improvement in high-ISO noise. And of course higher resolution.

Pretty damn significant in my book, you would have to go to the very best full frame sensors to get a similar jump from the 16MP sensor.

Go to DxOMark, use the comparison tool, choose the PM1 and PM2 and click compare. Next go in and look at the actual measured data. The difference is very real.

To what extent this matters in your personal shooting, only you can say.
