Fuji X-T1 (fw 4.0) vs Canon 7D – Kid’s Soccer (table version)

For those of you who like tables over paragraphs:

Equipment tested:

  • Fuji X-T1 + XC 50-230mm
  • vs Canon 7D + 70-200mm f/4L IS

Bottom line:

  • The more expensive Canon combo will get you the shot, but it won’t be as sharp as the Fuji
  • The less expensive Fuji combo will also get you the shot, but it will be harder to do.

Analysis:

After several games and practices using multiple combinations of settings, here is what I have found. Keep in mind that:

  • This may only apply to soccer (hence why I specified this in the title)
  • The Fuji XF 55-200mm might perform better than the XC, so my analysis might only apply to the Consumer grade XC.

*In the Midwest, the weather is often partly cloudy which makes fixed exposure impractical.

**The zoom ring on the XF 18-55mm is also very tight so I am doubtful that the XF 55-200mm is any easier.

Did I mention that this might only apply to soccer? 🙂
