Sony A9 Vs. Fujifilm X-T2 / X-Pro2 :: Sony Shooter Reviews Fuji X-T2 :: X-T2 Electronic Shutter for Sports


Guess what guys?

Yes, the inevitable is happening. People start to compare the brand new Sony A9 with the Fujifilm X-T2 and X-Pro2.

Now, I will say it once for all, so you can avoid to say it in the comments: “These comparisons are all unfair“. :-)

Ok… with that said, here is todays roundup, entirely focused on comparisons (and thoughts) between Sony and Fuji.

Sony Shooter Reviews Fujifilm X-T2

Let’s start with a Fujifilm X-T2 from a Sony APS-C shooter perspective (video above). The reviewer loves the X-T2 a lot. The colors, ACROS, the controls, the better lenses… there seems to be a lot to love on the X-T2 over Sony’s APS-C System.

Sony A9 Vs. Fujifilm X-Pro2 Image Quality

DPreview’s lab test shows that the IQ of the APS-C Fujifilm X-Pro2 can easily keep up with the IQ of the much more expensive FF Sony A9. Actually, X-Pro2 images look noticeably sharper, have way less false colors… overall, IQ on the X-Pro2 seems to be better than on the Sony A9.

However, you buy the Sony A9 for its speed and the black-out less EVF, and I guess A9 owners are ok with sacrificing a bit of IQ for that. The Fujifilm X-Pro2 can’t for sure keep up with the AF-tracking capabilities of the Sony A9 (and also not with the tracking capability of the Fujifilm X-T2).

Fuji X-T2 Electronic Shutter for Sports. As good as Sony A9?

dsphotoblog tested the Fujifilm X-T2 for sports using the electronic shutter. The point of the video is to show that the X-T2 electronic shutter is also really good and give you a EVF-lag-less experience. So he concludes that:

  • A9 is overpriced
  • A9 mechanical shutter very slow (5fps) whereas the X-T2 shoots at 11fps
  • Fujifilm X-T2 better value for money
  • with booster grip, also the X-T2 electronic shutter shows no EVF lag
