Below are the comparison in 6 categories conclusions.

  • Handling, Design and Aesthetics
  1. Fujifilm X-T100: Looks good, feels good. Triple control dials
  2. Canon EOS M50: Feels more plasticky compared to X-T100. Best swivel and touch screen
  3. Sony A6000: Low resolution Viewfinder. Bad menu. No touch screen
  • Autofocus (all work great in AF-S, focus in the review on AF-C)
  1. Canon EOS M50: Dual pixel hybrid AF smooth in stills and video
  2. Sony A6000: Decent job in tracking
  3. Fujifilm X-T100: AF-C is slow and hunts
  • Image Quality
  1. Fujifilm X-T100: Excellent color science. Great low light performance. Film simulations are fun and usable
  2. Canon EOS M50: Fantastic JPEGs. The only reason it comes after the X-T100 is that its extra profiles aren’t as effective or as fun to use as the X-T100
  3. Sony A6000: Colors can look strange. Not good saturation. Skin tones not pleasing
  • Lens Lineup
  1. Fujifilm X-T100: Largest selection of high quality specific APS-C lenses
