It's really not sufficient to do only a few random tests to make conclusions.
Here is the test I do with every new camera. I put 35mm eq. lens on two camera, set identical SS and equivalent aperture, and take 50 or so identical selfies in various light: led, flash, incandescent, sunlight, and mixture of those, in bright light and shadows, front-lit and back-lit, high and low ISO. When you do that you'll notice that in some conditions one camera produces significantly better results than the other.

lol.."some people" you mean Sony Northrup, The fake photographer?

Fellow Citizen says:

9:25 Doug Pardee posted an interesting piece about ISO recently 🙂

P.S. Fuji film simulations make for fast footage

radol says:

Have you used external recorder in video test? I thought that fuji does not allow for internal f-log?

Frank Feng says:

Gerald Undone's comparison review is more informative.

Random Life Productions says:

I’m so glad I’m female and have small hands…. it seems the Fuji is the better..

Aaron Smith says:

"Some people are telling you ISO doesn't exist…" then "the Fuji is under by half a stop…" Evidence that ISO is not consistent from manufacturer to manufacturer. You just made Tony's point that ISO is no longer standard.

Eshel Art Photography says:

I wish you did an overheating test on them both. Also you forgot to mention a very important feature on the Sony No Record Time Limit, this is a big deal for those who need to shoot over 30 min video.

on 1,2,3 GO!!! 9:08

Mark Beauregard says:

I am surprised that you didn't mention the lense lineup. The Sony APS-C lense lineup looks rather weak.

Bert Sw says:

I think the EU should grand a four year extension, of Brexit so people in the UK can rethink their gouvernement

Shane Doyle says:

Sony still needs some more decent APSC lenses.
I’m a Sony shooter but if I was only going to have a crop system then having a much bigger selection of quality compact lenses would push me towards the Fuji.

Niklas Jansson says:

Interesting that they have the same price in America. Here in Sweden the Sony costs 150 dollars more than the Fujifilm.

Victor RAD says:

Thanks! Sony 6500 or 6400? What to buy for video?

David Gibby says:

I saw a clear winner. Sony has no time limit on video recording (huge), and is less prone to overheating (huge). The Sony has double the buffer of images (huge), and a flip-up screen (not a deal breaker). The Sony A6400's ISO setting is exposing more accurately (troubling). I enjoy most your videos, but this video seamed to miss a few key differences.
