The debate will rage on for as long as there are cameras, but who's currently winning?
This is a timely video post by the Northrupians as 2019 has been a war in my mind between Sony and Fujifilm. It was the first full working year I had been fully Sony, using the a7 III and I've loved it, truly. The change to mirrorless was perfect for me and as my DSLR was a little on the old side anyway, the transition was nothing but positives. I didn't write on article on the change simply because it wasn't a fair comparison and it's a noisy enough space as it is!
Then Fuji threw me back into turmoil when they sent me to Fujikina with their GFX 100 and the GFX 50R and I fell in love. The problem for me was justifying the price point, but if I were to have compared like for like — that is, mirrorless full frame for mirrorless full frame — I do wonder where I would have ended up. Fuji has been making tremendous strides with its cameras for over a decade now and it's great to see them in the conversation with the "big 3" manufacturers, as they deserve to be.
I'm not much of a pixel peeper personally, but for some of my commercial work, particularly where I'm macro stacking intricate items, the sharpness of a body and lens is paramount. Fortunately for me, the Northrups don't compare macro lenses or I could find myself with a problem!
