Fujifilm has used its latest X Summit event to announce the GFX 50S II. The event, taking place in Japan and live-streamed on YouTube can be viewed below.


The GFX 50S II uses the same 50MP sensor as its existing cameras, and adds image stabilization and the same ‘X Processor 4’ chip used in the GFX 100S. The new chip improves AF speed and face/eye detection performance, the company says.

The in-body image stabilization system is also used to offer a 200MP, 16-shot high resolution mode. The new camera offers 19 Film Simulations, and there are over 100 new features and improvements compared to previous 50MP models, Fujifilm says.

The camera will be available from the end of September at a price of $3999.

In addition, there will be a GF 35-70mm F4.5-5.6 WR collapsible zoom lens, offering lens that matches the relative compactness of the 50S II. It offers a 28-55mm equivalent coverage and is designed to minimize the degree to which the light needs to be bent, as it passes through the optics. A symmetrical design with two ED, and one aspheric element means the aberrations of the elements at the front of the lens are cancelled out at the rear, they claim.

The 35-70mm zoom uses a two-lens focus system that allows for close focus. It will be sold for $999, but adds only $500 to the cost of a GFX 50S II
