As a verdict we can say both cameras have different kind of specs according to your interest.  Olympus E-M10 is a faster camera than the X-A2 with AF-system providing 81 points and 8fps continuous shooting speed. Besides, the E-M10 has 3-axis in-body image stabilisation which helps to reduce vibration during exposures.

On the other hand, the Fujifilm X-A2 features a bigger APS-c sized image sensor with more ergonomic body and handling.  Olympus OM-D E-M10 mirrorless camera body with 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 II R lens is currently selling for $699. Fujifilm X-A2 compact camera bundled with the XC 16-50mm II F3.5-5.6 OIS lens has a price tag for $549.95.

If you consider the mirrorless system as a lightweight option with better image quality than we recommended users to buy the Fuji X-A2 because of the image sensor with an affordable kit price option.

    This is a flawed comparison review. The EM-10 has a viewfinder and in body stabilization, which is huge for more serious photographers. It’s like apples and oranges.

    If a rangefinder style camera with a kit lens comparison was the benchmark, they should have chosen the Olympus EPL-7 which is a direct competitor to the Fuji in terms of features and price, not the OMD EM-10.

    It’s difficult to take this “comparison” seriously.
