APS C sensors versus MFT sensors: am I missing something ?
2

I suddenly came to the realization that mirrorless cameras like Fuji XT 2/ X pro 2 or several Sony cameras can pack a 24 MP sensor in a body no larger than Olympus EM1 II despite boasting a sensor 50% larger than that of a MFT.

Why is that ? I would have expected the larger sensor to be a handicap for achieving compactness ; what explains the fact that MFT sensors lag behing APS C resolution ?

What is the technical hurdle for having a 24 MP sensor in MFT ? Has Sony actually developped one ?

Thanks for enlightening me .
