### Fujifilm X-S20 vs Olympus E-PL5 Overview

Let's look a little more in depth at the **Fujifilm X-S20** vs **Olympus E-PL5**, both **Entry-Level Mirrorless** cameras by brands FujiFilm and Olympus. There exists a huge gap among the sensor resolutions of the X-S20 **(26MP)** and E-PL5 (**16MP)** and the X-S20 **(APS-C)** and E-PL5 **(Four Thirds)** come with totally different sensor sizing.

The X-S20 was introduced 10 years after the E-PL5 which is a fairly significant gap as far as camera technology is concerned. Both the cameras come with different body type with the Fujifilm X-S20 being a **SLR-style mirrorless** camera and the Olympus E-PL5 being a **Rangefinder-style mirrorless** camera.

Before diving straight into a more detailed comparison, below is a simple overview of how the X-S20 matches up against the E-PL5 in relation to portability, imaging, features and an overall mark.
