Fujifilm X-H1 Size Comparison – Too Big or Just Right?

One of the main criticisms that we've seen aimed at the Fujifilm X-H1 since its launch last week is about its size, with lots of online comments that it's just too big for a mirrorless camera. To that end, we've gathered a number of different cameras from the far-flung corners of the Photography Blog office, lined them up one-by-one next to the X-H1, and shot each combination from various angles to give you an idea of how they compare in real life. The cameras are: Fujifilm X-T2, Fujifilm GFX, Panasonic GH5S, Sony A7R II, Sony A6500, Canon EOS 5DSR, Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Canon EOS 80D.
