Reasons For

7 Reasons For
Higher megapixel count Edit
The Fujifilm X-Pro2 has a megapixel count of 24.3MP, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is only a 20.3MP digital camera (4MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

25,600 higher maximum ISO speed Edit
The Fujifilm X-Pro2 has a maximum ISO speed of 51,200, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is only a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (25,600 lower).
580,000 pixels higher display resolution Edit
The Fujifilm X-Pro2 has a display resolution of 1,620,000 pixels, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is only a 1,040,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (580,000 pixels lower).
Slightly bigger battery capacity Edit
The Fujifilm X-Pro2 has a battery capacity of 1,260mAh, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is only a 1,200mAh battery digital camera (60mAh smaller).
Twenty more shots per battery charge Edit
The Fujifilm X-Pro2 takes 350.00 shots per battery charge, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 only takes 330.00 shots per battery charge. Read more

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

5 Reasons For
50% longer maximum camera shutter speed Edit
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is 60s maximum shutter speed. That's 30s longer than the Fujifilm X-Pro2 (60s). Read more

The maximum time which the camera shutter is open when taking a photo.

62% higher lens magnification ratio Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is a 1.54x lens magnification ratio digital camera. That's 0.94x higher than the Fujifilm X-Pro2 (1.54x). Read more

The lens magnification ratio is the ratio between the true size of the object being photographed and the size of the object when projected on to the camera's sensor.

A higher lens magnification ratio is important for macro photography as it allows you to focus on very small object very close to the lens.

24% bigger eye relief Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 has an eye relief of 21mm, however the Fujifilm X-Pro2 is only a 16mm Eye relief digital camera (5mm smaller). Read more

Eye relief (also known as eye point) refers to how far away from the eye piece your eye can be and you can still see the full frame of the image that will be taken.

A larger eye relief distance is useful for people who wear glasses, meaning that they can't put their eye directly on the eye piece.

10g lighter Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 has a weight of 435g, but the Fujifilm X-Pro2 is a 445g digital camera (10g heavier). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 costs £442.69 less than the Fujifilm X-Pro2.
