My Nikon 5500 has less megapixel capacity than my Panasonic Lumix; but it still yields beautiful images. Using a longer lens on the Nikon I am able to create portraits of flowers with a very limited field of focus. This is great for gardens when many leaves and other objects that vie for attention in my composition. It allows me to pick a main focal point that clearly becomes the star of the composition.
