Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Fujifilm XQ2, which was introduced in January 2015 is a Ultracompact camera with a 12.0MP 2/3-inch sensor whereas Olympus TG-3, which was introduced in March 2014 is a Waterproof camera with a 16.0MP 1/2.3-inch sensor. There is only 10 months difference between XQ2 and TG-3 so we are expecting this to be a fair comparison regarding age and technology level.
Fortunately, you can't go wrong with any of these cameras as we rank them amongst Top 10 cameras in their classes. Fujifilm XQ2 is ranked #1
out of 152 Ultracompact cameras with an overall score of 52 whereas Olympus TG-3 is ranked #4
out of 75 Waterproof cameras with an overall score of 54.
