Fujifilm X-Tx0 Cameras (2019) vs Sony α7S Mirrorless Cameras (2015)

Analysis:

The Fujifilm X-T30 (2019) is one of the very best Mirrorless Cameras that one can get for around $850. The Sony α7S II (2015), however, while a very good choice at its $2,600 price point, falls just short of being remarkable.

The Fujifilm X-T30 (2019) impressed reviewers from a large number of trusted sources that conduct reliable hands-on testing, including PCmag, shotkit.com, Expert Reviews, Digital Camera World, camerajabber.com, and Digital Photography Review. It performed great in their respective roundups - it was named "Best for Balanced Speed and Imaging" by PCmag, "GREAT VALUE" by shotkit.com, and "the best camera for style lovers, without compromising on substance" by Expert Reviews. Earning that much praise from such reliable sources is a good sign that the product is worth the money.

Moving on to the Sony α7S II (2015): it was unable to reach the very top of any roundups from sources that conduct reliable and unbiased testing. Nonetheless, it still managed to impress reviewers from a number of such sites, like Photography Blog, The Phoblographer, Techradar, DXOMARK, PCmag, Digital Camera World, camerajabber.com, and Digital Photography Review, enough for them to include them on those lists.

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 X-T30 (2019) and Sony α7S II (2015) managed averages of 9.0 and 9.3 points, respectively.

Due to the difference in their prices, however, it's important to keep in mind that a direct Fujifilm X-T30 (2019) vs. Sony α7S II (2015) 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.
