DPReview Entry Level Shootout: Fujifilm X-T200 vs Sony A6100 vs Canon EOS M50

DPReviewTV compares the Fujifilm X-T200 with the Sony A6100 and the Canon EOS M50.

Here are their findings:

Handling

  1. EOS M50: nice quality camera. Best grip. Wonderful touch screen interface
  2. X-T200: beautiful. Very customizable. Feels cheap holding in the hands. No AF-ON button. Handles well, grip improved
  3. A6100: same old design

Display

  1. X-T200: similar EVF like Canon. 16:9 aspect ration LCD
  2. EOS M50: best EVF. Fully articulating screen
  3. A6100: too low res viewfinder. Fully articulating screen would have been better

Image Quality

  1. X-T200: easy win. modern sensor. Very good ISO performance. Great Fujifilm JPEG. Fastest sensor scan rate
  2. A6100: better high ISO than Canon. Rolling shutter issue
  3. EOS M50: oldest sensor. 24MP. Slow scan rate

Autofocus

  1. A6100: easy win. Sony’s eye and face AF is fantastic. Great tracking. Intuitive to use. Highest hit rate. You get the same advanced AF as their Pro bodies
  2. EOS M50: dual pixel AF. Great touch screen interface. Sticky tracking
  3. X-T200: much better than X-T100. But other cameras have a bit better interface. X-T200 has very short buffer

Video

  1. X-T200: 16:9 flippy screen. You can monitor audio via USB-C adapter. Beautiful 4K and nice slow motion
  2. A6100: best AF, usable 4K. Pretty severe rolling shutter. Screen tilt upwards. If you use microphone on hot shoe, it blocks the screen
  3. EOS M50: 4K has huge crop and no longer dual pixel AF

Lenses

  1. X-T200: Fujifilm continues to dominate in having the best and most lenses available. No big third party support, though. But probably there is not really the need for it. It’s hard for third party manufacturers to come and compete with a company, who makes very affordable zooms, affordable primes like the XC 35mm f/2, kit lenses are often better then some of the Pro lenses other manufacturers make. Lots of Pro lenses, too
  2. EOS M50: opposite of Sony. No higher end lenses. You need an adapter and adapt EF lenses. Not much third party support. Canon has affordable good quality lenses for users starting out. The kit lens is way better than the Sony kit lens
  3. Sony: lots of third party support. Excellent and expensive E mount lenses. But this is an entry level camera, and needs affordable lenses. Sony lacks of such lenses

Conclusion

  1. X-T200: well deserved win. Great AF, excellent video, sexy body, very customizable, lenses, etc. It fixes all the issues they had with the X-T100
  2. EOS M50: affordable, capable, versatile
  3. A6100: lack of lenses. Not sexy cameras. Autofocus is great
