Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Canon 1D X III, which was introduced in January 2020 is a Pro DSLR camera with a 20.0MP Full frame sensor whereas Fujifilm GFX 100, which was introduced in May 2019 is a Pro Mirrorless camera with a 102.0MP Medium format sensor. There is only 8 months difference between 1D X MIII and GFX 100 so we are expecting this to be a fair comparison regarding age and technology level.
Despite some fundamental differences of these two body types, Mirrorless cameras are becoming serious alternatives to DSLR cameras thanks to their size/weight advantages and recent improvements in their focus speeds , which makes this comparison even more interesting. Fortunately, you can't go wrong with any of these cameras as we rank them amongst Top 10 cameras in their classes. Canon 1D X III is ranked #2
out of 36 Pro DSLR cameras with an overall score of 82 whereas Fujifilm GFX 100 is ranked #1
