Take a look at the specification comparison of these two cameras: Fuji X-A5 and Olympus EM10 III. One is APS-C sensor based camera and other is MFT based, though both are mirrorless and can also record 4K, but still there is some handy difference between these two cameras. Let.s see…

Fuji X-A5 vs Olympus E-M10 III
We will see a pretty much difference in the image quality since both used different sensor. Fuji X-A5 uses APS-C sensor, whereas M10 III uses Four-Third sensor. Comparatively APS-C sensor is larger than Four-third, which means larger sensor maximum light and maximum light means more clarity in the images. Plus, 24 MP high resolution lets you get large prints of the subjects. On the other hand, E-M10 III with 16 MP MFT sensor is getting behind M10 III.
Look at the AF system of these two cameras and you can see that Fuji X-A5 should be a wonderful camera that focuses the subjects diligently since its Hybrid AF system (Contrast as well as Phase detect sensor) captures the subjects rapidly and precisely. On the other hand, Olympus E-M10 III seems to have fallen behind since it carries contrast detect sensor only over the Hybrid AF system of X-A5. Coming with Phase detection AF, enabling the X-A5 to achieve quick and easy auto focus, confirming you get images and high resolution videos with stunning details. but E-M10 III offers creative 121 AF points for wider coverage and precise focusing of the subjects, whereas EOS M6 offers you 91 AF points only.
Fuji X-A5 comes with the maximum ISO of 51200, whereas Olympus E-M10 III has only 25600 of ISO range. So we can say that X-A5 would be a better lowlight performer that can gives us a flexible lowlight shooting.
The 5-axis I.S inside Olympus E-M10 III effectively suppresses the uncontrolled camera shakes that sometimes affect the image quality. 5-axis I.S mechanism helps you get crisp and blur free images, even while using the slower shutter speed and also when you use your camera at lowlight area. On the other hand, Fuji X-A5 doesn’t have any Image stabilization mechanism Inside.
Continuous shooting speed
The E-M10 III camera is capable of taking up to 8.6 frames per second to help you get multiple images of a fast-moving subject and ensure you capture crisp and clear shots. On the other hand, Fuji X-A5 avails only 9 FPS for continuous shooting.
Both the two are capable to record 4K. But Fuji X-A5 record at 15fps, whereas E-M10 III at 30 fps. Moreover, Fuji X-A5 lets you record the 4K resolution video only upto 5-minutes, whereas Olympus E-M10 III will give you around 30 minutes.
Fuji X-A5 lets you take around 450 shots at a time, whereas E-M10 III captures 330 shots only.
For stills, Fuji X-A5 is great camera that offers APS-C sensor and 24 MP resolution. Both are wonderful entry-level cameras, but E-M10 III for its hefty 4k video can be used by even professional as their second camera.
