Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Nikon D780, which was introduced in January 2020 is a Advanced DSLR camera with a 25.0MP 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 D780 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. Nikon D780 is ranked #4
out of 93 Advanced DSLR cameras with an overall score of 84 whereas Fujifilm GFX 100 is ranked #1
