Weight: Fujifilm X100T light-weight than Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX100.
Verdict: If we keep sensor size and lens relative to each other than we are damn sure that Fuji will create more DOF in portrait images compare to the Panasonic LX100 camera, the other major advantage of the Fujifilm X-Trans sensor is active phase AF pixels inside the sensor so it enables HYBRID AF in Fuji X100T camera… the ISO range of Fuji is also broad than of LX100 so one thing is sure the Fuji X100T will give you better image quality than Panasonic LX100.
Handling and usage + the X-Factor – Fuji have a upper hand in Handling and usage due to its compact size, integrated image stabilization and 3X optical zoom…plus the X-factor is addition of 4K video recording inside the Panasonic LX100 camera.
