Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Higher megapixel count Edit
The Fujifilm X-Pro2 has a megapixel count of 24.3MPMP, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is only a 20.3MPMP digital camera (4MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Significantly higher maximum ISO speed Edit
The Fujifilm X-Pro2 has a maximum ISO speed of 51,200, whereas the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is only a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera (26 lower).
15.4mm thinner Edit
Fujifilm X-Pro2 is 45.9mmmm deep, but the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is a 61.3mmmm deep digital camera (15.4mm thicker).
Twenty more shots per battery charge Edit
The Fujifilm X-Pro2 takes 350 shots shots per battery charge, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 only takes 330 shots shots per battery charge. Read more

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

10 Reasons For
Longer maximum camera shutter speed Edit
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is 60ss maximum shutter speed. That's 30s longer than the Fujifilm X-Pro2 (60ss). Read more

The maximum time which the camera shutter is open when taking a photo.

84% larger viewfinder screen size Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is a 3"" viewfinder screen size digital camera. That's 2.52" larger than the Fujifilm X-Pro2 (3"").
Higher lens magnification ratio Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is a 1.54xx lens magnification ratio digital camera. That's 0.94x higher than the Fujifilm X-Pro2 (1.54xx). Read more

The lens magnification ratio is the ratio between the true size of the object being photographed and the size of the object when projected on to the camera's sensor.

A higher lens magnification ratio is important for macro photography as it allows you to focus on very small object very close to the lens.

Shorter start-up time Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 has a start-up time of 1,000msms, but the Fujifilm X-Pro2 is a 4msms start-up time digital camera (3ms longer).
24% bigger eye relief Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 has an eye relief of 21mmmm, however the Fujifilm X-Pro2 is only a 16mmmm Eye relief digital camera (5mm smaller). Read more

Eye relief (also known as eye point) refers to how far away from the eye piece your eye can be and you can still see the full frame of the image that will be taken.

A larger eye relief distance is useful for people who wear glasses, meaning that they can't put their eye directly on the eye piece.

Marginally lighter Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 has a weight of 435gg, but the Fujifilm X-Pro2 is a 445gg digital camera (10g heavier). Read more

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Shorter Edit
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is 77.9mmmm tall. That's 4.9mm shorter than the Fujifilm X-Pro2 (77.9mmmm).
6% narrower Edit
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is a 133.2mmmm wide digital camera. That's 7.3mm narrower than the Fujifilm X-Pro2 (133.2mmmm).
Cheaper by $869
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 costs $869.05 less than the Fujifilm X-Pro2.
