Sony A6500 vs Fujifilm X-Pro2 Comparison

Here is a quick comparison for the Sony A6500 vs Fujifilm X-Pro2 mirrorless cameras with APS-c sized image sensors in 24-Megapixel resolution.

Sony Alpha A6500 has become the company’s flagship APS-C mirrorless camera with in-body 5-axis image stabilization technology and touchscreen.

The MILC uses the same copper-wired 24MP sensor with 425 on-sensor PDAF points but gains a faster (LSI) processor to allow high speed operation. As a result, the device shoots up to 11fps in continuous mode for up to 307 frames.

The Fujifilm X-Pro2 features 24.3 megapixel X-Trans CMOS III sensor, new focal plane shutter with a top speed of 1/8000 sec. and flash sync up to 1/250 sec. More details can be found in the official announcement and additional coverage pages.
