Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Fujifilm X-T3, which was introduced in September 2018 is a Semi-Pro Mirrorless camera with a 26.0MP APS-C sensor whereas Nikon D500, which was introduced in January 2016 is a Semi-Pro DSLR camera with a 21.0MP APS-C sensor.
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. Fujifilm X-T3 is ranked #3
out of 44 Semi-Pro Mirrorless cameras with an overall score of 83 whereas Nikon D500 is ranked #7
out of 90 Semi-Pro DSLR cameras with an overall score of 86.
