Sony A900 vs. Fuji X-T1, a Surprising Conclusion |
The Online Photographer

Apropos Ctein’s post above, I want to tell you my conclusions of trying the 8-year-old (Sept. 2008) Sony A900 (24 MP, full frame) and Sigma 35mm ƒ/1.4 Art against the current (Jan. 2014) Fuji X-T1 (16 MP, APS-C reduced frame) and Fuji XF 23mm (35mm angle of view equivalent) ƒ/1.4. Why just the conclusions? Because the proof is tedious, and…well, isn’t proof. I’ll give examples of what I mean by that below. What I did was to wander around inside and out and make about 40 matching shots with both cameras. I matched ISOs, apertures, and focus points, and let the cameras choose their shutter speeds.
