Fuji X-T1 vs Sony A7r – A Pixel-To-Pixel Showdown | Alik Griffin

Since early 2013 with the introduction of the X100s, the Fuji X-Trans CMOS II APS-C has been Fujifilm’s flagship sensor that they’ve been using in all their APS-C cameras. While winning much praise from Fuji fans, the sensor also holds a lot of mystery and even retains some criticism. The performance specs of the sensor after all remain relatively unknown. The last time DXOMark touched a Fujifilm camera was back 2013, completely ignoring this new sensor and we’ve been left in the dark on how it rates against the competition in terms of dynamic range, sharpness, high ISO and color accuracy. As we all know, or should I say, according to DXOMark, Sony makes what are considered to be the best sensors out there. With the Sony A7r (and soon to be A7rII) being their best camera in terms of sensor performance with still photography, the cameras also has this special capability of being placed in a 16 megapixel APS-C crop mode. This makes it the perfect camera to put up against the Fuji X-T1 at a pixel-to-pixel comparison. Meaning, I’m not going to compare the Full Frame vs. APS-C qualities of the camera, instead I’m comparing the real estate of the sensor itself. With the Sony A7r placed in APS-C crop mode it becomes nearly identical to the Fuji X-T1. Both cameras will be at 16 megapixels, both having a 1.5x APS-C crop factor. Both sensors are even manufactured by Sony, but both cameras seem to produce two very different RAW files……
