On the other side, the X-A10 combines a 16.3 megapixel APS-C sensor that can’t give you images as sharp as A5100.
AF system– The Potent combination of focal plane phase-detection AF points with an extremely wide autofocus coverage area (179 focal points) with high-precision contrast-detection AF, allowing the A5100 to accurately track the desire subjects in very quick time, Probably as little as 0.07 seconds. Unfortunately, Fuji doesn’t show anything innovative in the case of AF system of X-A10 that features only contrast detect sensors with 49 AF points, which is comparatively poor that Sony A5100.
Shutter speed– You can get a great advantage of faster shutter speed, letting you to use large aperture to achieve shallow depth of field, even while shooting under bright conditions without over-exposing the image. Moreover, faster shutter speed also helps you to freeze each movement of the intended subjects. But, Sony A5100 offers the faster shutter speed of 1/4000 only.
Battery Life– Fuji X-A10’s battery looks marginally sturdier than Sony A5100, enabling you to take around 410 shots at a single time charge. On the other side, Sony A5100 allows you to take almost 400 shots at a time.

Verdict- Ultimately, both the two mirrorless cameras of two different manufacturers don’t show huge differences in the core specification, but still Sony is getting more attention all due to its faster AF systems and the ability to produce high-quality of images almost in all kinds of shooting conditions.
