Panasonic G9 has a 20.0MP Four Thirds (17.3 x 13 mm ) sized CMOS sensor . On the other hand, Nikon D7100 has a 24.0MP APS-C (23.5 x 15.6 mm ) sized CMOS sensor .
Another similarity between these two cameras is that both Nikon D7100 and Panasonic G9 sensors lack anti-alias (Low-Pass) filters. Removing anti-alias filter increases the sharpness and level of detail but at the same time, it increases the chance of moire occurring in certain scenes.
Below you can see the G9 and D7100 sensor size comparison.
As seen above, Nikon D7100 has a 1.6x Larger sensor area than Panasonic G9. Larger sensors give photographer more control on the depth of field and blurry background compared to smaller sensor when shot in same focal length and aperture.
