The thrilling specifications inside the core of Fuji X100F making it most demanding compact cameras around the market. On the other hand, Sony RX10 III has already created noise through its tireless performance. Honestly, talking about the compact cameras then Sony RX10 III gives a lot to the users its image quality, AF system and the big 4K video recording capability, making it the most versatile compact cameras in the arena. By the way, Fuji X100F is not short of any astounding looking by the specifications, such as large APS-C sized sensor, effective pixels, much better AF system etc.

We may better know the differences if we go details…
Identifying the best image quality delivered by both of these two cameras will really be difficult because one side – Fuji X100F has very large APSC sized sensor inside it, whereas Sony RX10 III features a back-illuminated 20.1 MP 1.0-type stacked CMOS sensor. But the large APSC sized sensor allows maximum amount of light resulting in gorgeous sharp and crystal-clear images, but due to a bit little sensor size Sony mayn’t be able to produce sharp images as X100F. However, Sony RX10 III lowlight performance may be superb due to stacked CMOS sensor.
We should give more points to Fuji X100F because of its magical Hybrid AF system that features both contrast as well as phase detect sensor. On the other hand, Sony RX10 III is based on contrast detect sensor only, which helps the camera achieve an incredibly fast but somewhere accuracy may not be so efficient. Moreover, this Sony camera is able to lock on to a subject in as little as 0.09 seconds. By the way, both contrast as well as phase detects AF system helps the X100F to quickly focus over the subjects with immense accuracy. Plus, on the back of X100F a new joystick-style Focus Lever has been integrated that lets you quickly select a focus area in the frame with 8 directions of movement.
In addition, Fuji X100F has creative 91 AF points that can be divided into 325 points for extra accuracy along with 49 phase AF points. On the other hand, Sony gives you 25 AF points only.
As we see Sony utilize stacked CMOS sensor, which is very helpful in lowlight shooting, but its expandable IOS range is 25600 only. On the other hand, the expandable ISO range offered by Fuji X100F is very high that is 51200 lets you to acquire noise free images during lowlight shooting.
Continuous shooting speed
RX10 iii avails 14 fps (remember, that’s with focus locked) that excellently seizes each action of the subjects and provide you the sharp images with blur less results (very crucial while covering the sports event) where as only 8fps of continuous shooting speed provided by Fuji X100F.
Cyber-shot RX camera offers the advantages of 4K (QFHD 3840×2160) movie recording which gives videographers a comfort shooting high quality 4K video from extreme distances. One very big downside of Fuji X100F is its video capability that is limited to full HD only (1080p@60fps).
Sony RX10 III allows you to take around 420 shots at a time, whereas Fuji X100F lets you to take 390shots at a time only.
Sony RX10 III is a versatile camera and completely cut off the need of a high end DSLR with its incredible features and image quality. However, Fuji X100F has X-Tans CMOS sensor of 3rd generation without lowpass filter and high resolution will you to grab maximum amount of details in a given scene compared to RX10 III.
