25 Mar Sony a6300 vs Fujifilm X-Pro2 – Image Quality and Autofocus comparison

Source: Mirrorless Comparison

There are many differences between the Sony a6300 and the Fujifilm X-Pro2 but two of the most important characteristics – image quality and autofocus – actually behave in a similar manner. Both cameras inaugurated the two most recent APS-C sensors that have since been implemented on other products such as the X-T20, X-T2 and a6500 respectively, and their autofocus systems are among the best I’ve had the chance to use. So even though the price, build quality, additional features and target users are all different, there is actually a valid reason to compare these two cameras!

The X-Pro2 was the first of a new generation of X series cameras with the X-Trans III 24MP sensor and X Processor Pro. The Sony camera, on the other hand, quickly became one of the most attractive options on the market thanks to its excellent features and reasonable price.

In this article, I’ll be sharing an in-depth comparison between the image quality and autofocus performance. I’ve also included a summary to highlight the most important differences between these two flagship APS-C cameras following several months of use.

Let’s start by sharing some numbers and specifications. I know, it’s less exciting than a nice set of images but it is helpful to understand the technology behind these two products.

The two cameras share approximately the same number of megapixels (24.3 million for the X-Pro2 and 24.2 million for the a6300). However the technology of their respective image sensors is different.

The Sony a6300 has an Exmor CMOS chip with a lower copper wiring layer and processing circuitry. This allows it to gather more light and use it more efficiently thanks to the High-speed BIONZ X image processor.

The Fujifilm X-Pro2 has a new X Processor Pro engine and a new X-Trans CMOS III sensor. It includes a thinner copper wiring as well but has a different distribution of pixels. Unlike traditional Bayer sensors, it has an irregular pattern that guarantees the presence of at least one Red, Green and Blue pixel in each horizontal and vertical line. This ensures more sharpness while eliminating the need for an Anti-Aliasing filter….
