Fuji X-T2 and Nikon D500 Comparison

I took one of these photos with the Fuji X-T2 and the other with the Nikon D500. I had the 35mm f1.8 lens on the Nikon and the 18-55mm lens on the Fuji. I set the aperture and ISO to the same setting on both cameras.

The only variable was that I shot the poppy handheld, so I may have leaned forward or backwards a little in one shot compared to the other. That and the fact that the 18-55mm lens on the Fuji is image stabilised.

I don’t think that made any difference because the shutter speed was fast enough to copy with any camera shake.

So I am interested to know whether you have a preference for either of the photos? Personally, I think they are both good for colour accuracy.


  1. First shot by Fuji is better as it seems more real.


  2. JenT says:

    To me the top shot is crisper and the colors are more natural looking. The bottom image looks washed out and quite yellow. But I wasn’t there to see what you were shooting, so that’s only my impression.

  3. I’ve been looking to upgrade my d5600. Do you recommend the d500?


    1. OK, first a reason why a person might not want to upgrade to a D500. The D500 weighs twice as much as the D5600. Now for reasons to say yes: It feels very good in the hand, very solid and it gives me confidence that it is a good tool. It focuses very very quickly and the images it produces are very good. It likes a lot of light on the sensor – by which I mean that if I use a higher ISO, then it gets noisy if it is underexposed. But give it enough light and it is great.
