 From the specification comparison table we can see that

 

The Fuji X-Pro 2 camera features more bigger sensor and bit extra resolution over the Olympus PEN F,  the other advantage of the X-Pro 2 camera is X-Trans architecture based sensor that completely eliminates the need Low pass filter.

sensor-size-mirrorlessAs you can see in the sensor size difference, the Olympus PEN F features 4/3 sensor on the other side the Fuji X-Pro 2 camera features APS-C sensor, so without doubt we will see more details in Fuji X-Pro 2 images.

2AXIS-IS-versus-5AXIS-IS_enThe 5 axis image stabilization system used in Olympus reduces the camera shake upto 5 stops, the camera doesn’t need IS based lenses and on the other side we have Fuji that doesn’t feature built in IS, the IS depend upon the type of lenses used.

The AF system of Fuji is advance compared to the Olympus, due to the help of X-Trans tech the Fuji enjoys the Hybrid CMOS AF and lock down AF in a min speed of 0.06 sec only, on the other side we have PEN -F that limited to contrast based AF system only.

Video recording is almost same, both the camera limited to full HD video recording and doesn’t support 4K. It’s really strange to ss a $1K range mirrorless cameras announced in 2016 and remains limited to Full HD mode only.

Olympus PEN-F vs Fuji X-Pro 2 — ISO Test

Olympus PEN-F High ISO Test
Olympus PEN-F vs Fuji X-Pro 2 Image Analysis

Sensor: The Panasonic GX8 features

The Panasonic GX8 features 20 Megapixel CMOS 4/3 sensor and Sony A6300 features a 20 MP APS-C sensor, Sony A6300 sensor carry more resolution as well as bigger sensor.

Both the sensor are built on different technologies, the Sony A6300 sensor is built with active Phase AF pixels inside the sensor so it will do fast AF compared to the Panasonic GX8.

The Sony advance Hybrid CMOS AF features 425 phase based AF points and 169 contrast based AF points, will allow camera to lock AF in a little time of 0.05 sec, on the other side the Panasonic features exclusive DFD auto-focus system. that also locks AF in .07 sec.  However Sony clearly wins the game by .02 sec difference.

Take a look at the difference in AF time of both the camera.

Camera Sony A6300 Panasonic GX8
AF lock time 0.05 sec 0.07 sec
Continuous shooting speed 11 fps 10fps

Continuous shooting speed of A6300 is faster compared to Panasonic GX8 camera despite of having more resolution.

ISO range of the Sony A6300 is more broad and another biggest advantage is the larger sensor area compared to the Panasonic GX8 43 sensor.  More ISO will sure help you get neat and clean night-shots without noise banding or color noise.

Dual IS in Panasonic GX8 is un-comparable, Panasonic becomes the world first company to feature Dual IS in a camera system, the Panasonic GX8 comes with built in sensor shift IS mechanism and when you add a OIS lens in the camera, the camera IS system sync with the Lens based IS system to give you ultimate result.

The Panasonic GX8 features and Sony A6300 both can record 4K videos at 30fps.

The Panasonic GX8 features 3″ touchscreen vari-angle monitor with bit high resolution compared to Sony A6300.

Verdict: Both the camera have almost same price tag, so we recommend you get the Sony A6300 camera since the camera features more advance AF and better sensor on the other side the Panasonic GX8 camera features built-in image stabilization. So if you prefer built-in IS over image quality and AF you can get the GX8 camera.

Sensor

The Sony newly developed CMOS APS-C AF sensor features 24 MP resolution on the other hand small but poploar 4/3 sensor features 20 MP resoltuion

High resolution shot – The Olympus PEN-F is capable create 50 Megapixels image files to give you intense details. The camera uses 5-axis sensor shift mechanism to create large image files however you need a tripod for that. Sony A6300 doesn’t have built-in IS or high resolution mode.

Technology behind both the sensor

Sony 24 MP Exmor R CMOS sensor is build on latest HYBRID AF technology, the Hybrid CMOS AF sensor features a epic number of 425 Phase AF points and approx 169 contrast based AF points to do AF.

The AF points cover the entire screen of the camera and hence you never get a out-of-focus shot from the camera, the AF speed of the camera is also blazing fast and it takes approx 0.05 sec of time to acquires the AF in average lighting condition.

Introduction of 4D focus in the AXXXX series camera, Sony A6300 is the first E-mount mirrorless camera camera to get 4D AF after the SLT A77II camera.

The top continuous shooting rate of the A6300 is aprrox of 11 fps @ 24 MP for up to 21 raw frames in a single burst with AF and AE, 8 fps shooting in live view, and permits 14-bit raw file output. Enough for a $1K camera.

The Low-light performance: The A6300 camera features 1-stop more ISO range compared to PEN-F camera (51200 vs 25600), not only more ISO the Sony A6300 also features more bigger sensor compared to the Olympus PEN-F camera that clearly means the Sony sensor have more bigger photodiodes to capture light despite of slight increase in the resolution.

At the end of the day Sony will sure perform better in-terms of low-light performance compared to Olympus PEN-F camera.

The Olympus PEN-F uses traditional contrast detect AF system for acquiring AF, so without doubt we are confirmed that Sony A6300 will do faster AF compared to the Olympus PEN – F Mirrorless camera

Built-in Image Stabilization – The Olympus PEN-F features built-in 5-axis image stabilization that prevents camera shake upto 5 stops even when any type of lens used with the camera. The image stabilization is very useful while shooting tele-shots and macro images with the camera.

No built-in image stabilization is available inside the camera, users have to by OSS lenses to compensate camera shake and its a price investment.

Introduction of 4K: The  Sony A6300 camera features 4K video recording on the other hand the Olmypus PEN-F limited to Full HD video recording .

The Sony A6300 offers 4K video recording at 30 frames per second, Support is available for the S-Gamut3.Cine/S-Log-3 and S-Gamut3/S-Log3 profiles that enable up to a 1300% wider dynamic range for smoother tonal and color gradations, along with enhanced sensitivity and clarity in shadows and mid-tones.

The Sony A6300 features larger APS-C sensor that will sure give you more dynamic range compared to Olympus PEN-F with 4/3 sensor and not only sensor size the Sony also offers advance AF system that combines Phase and Contrast based AF system, fast continuous shooting speed and a option to record 4K videos under same price tag.

We recommend you to get the Sony A6300 camera over Olympus PEN-F.
