Fuji Unveils the GFX 50S Medium Format Mirrorless Camera and Three GF Lenses

Well folks today is the day, Fuji are starting off 2017 with a bang with the announcement of three new cameras and a quiver of beautiful new lenses to go with them! First and foremost we have the Fuji GFX 50S, the worlds second, but perhaps more importantly the worlds most affordable medium format mirrorless camera and the first of its native GF series lenses.

Fuji GFX 50S Medium Format Mirrorless Camera

We first heard word of the GFX early in 2016, and indeed a prototype was unveiled to the world at Photokina. With the specification being widely available for a long time now confirmation of pricing has perhaps become the key aspect of todays announcement; The GFX 50S is not the only medium format mirrorless camera available after all, Hasselblad have of course already announced the X1D 50C at a body only price of $8,995, the price for the Fuji? Only $6,499. Here is what you get for your money:

  • 51.4MP 43.8 x 32.9mm CMOS Sensor
  • X-Processor Pro Image Processor
  • Removable 3.69m-Dot OLED EVF
  • 3.2″ 2.36m-Dot Tilting Touchscreen LCD
  • 117-Point Contrast-Detection AF System
  • ISO 100-12800
  • Full HD 1080p Video Recording at 30 fps
  • Multi Aspect Ratio Shooting
  • Film Simulation Modes
  • Weather-Sealed Magnesium Alloy Body

Whilst the GFX is larger than the X1D there is simply no arguing with the price; The GFX is also higher resolution and arguably more survivable with its weather sealed construction. Sure, it isn’t a Hasselblad, and that really will matter to some people, but for many a $2500 saving to spend on Lenses simply cant be overlooked. Pre-Orders for the GFX are live right now at the following links:
