Fujifilm GFX Cameras (2018) vs Sony α5x00 (Upper-entry APS-C) Mirrorless Cameras (2014)

Analysis:

The Fujifilm GFX 50R (2018) is an example of a great Mirrorless Camera at its $3,500 budget.

In the case of the Sony α5100 (2014), however, we weren't able to find enough data to come to any reliable conclusions.

While the Fujifilm GFX 50R (2018) wasn't able to make it to the very top of any roundups from sources that perform quality hands-on testing, it still got featured in a large number of them. Digital Camera World, Techradar, TrustedReviews, Digital Photography Review, PCmag, The Verge, Expert Reviews, Android Authority, and shotkit.com have all deemed it worthy of a place on their respective shortlists.

Moving on to the Sony α5100 (2014): it did great in a number of roundups that were conducted by sources that perform their own hands-on testing, such as shotkit.com, Reviewed, and TrustedReviews - it was dubbed "Top Pick" by shotkit.com, "Ranked 3 out of 5" by Reviewed, and "Ranked 1 out of 11" by TrustedReviews, which indicates that it's worthy of consideration.

Out of the sources that tested and rated both of these Mirrorless Cameras, Techradar preferred the Fujifilm GFX 50R (2018), whereas reviewers at Gadget Review liked the Sony α5100 (2014) better. PCmag and Expert Reviews gave them identical review scores.

We also took a look at which sources liked these products best - the highest Fujifilm GFX 50R (2018) rating came from Digital Camera World, whereas the Sony α5100 (2014) most impressed reviewers at Photography Blog; they earned scores of 10 and 10, respectively.

Lastly, we averaged out all of the reviews scores that we could find on these two products and compared them to other Mirrorless Cameras on the market. We learned that both of them performed far better than most of their competitors - the overall review average earned by Mirrorless Cameras being 7.9 out of 10, whereas the Fujifilm GFX 50R (2018) and Sony α5100 (2014) managed averages of 8.2 and 8.3 points, respectively.

Due to the difference in their prices, however, it's important to keep in mind that a direct Fujifilm GFX 50R (2018) vs. Sony α5100 (2014) comparison might not be entirely fair - some sources don't take value for money into account when assigning their scores and therefore have a tendency to rate more premium products better.
