The expressions for the partition function definitely are different in the two cases. The canonical partition function, [itex]Z(N,V,T)[/itex] is a function of T, V, and N, while the microcanonical partition function, [itex]\Omega(N,V,E)[/itex] is a function of E, V and N. The microcanonical partition function is usually called the "density of states". They are related to thermodynamic quantities:

[itex]Z = e^{-A/kT}[/itex] where [itex]A[/itex] is the Helmholtz free energy, [itex]A = E - TS[/itex].

[itex]\Omega = e^{S/k}[/itex] where [itex]S[/itex] is the entropy
