04 Dec Fujifilm GFX 50R – First Impressions

My personal camera

Before I begin this review of the Fujifilm GFX50R, I should include a disclaimer. This review is based on my personal camera and lenses which I purchased at full retail price at an authorized Fujifilm retailer in Hong Kong.

These are not loaned to me, nor are they purchases that I intend to return. I hope this will provide background for a candid review from someone that has put his own money on the table, respondent with the expectations that come with that.

All images in this post were taken either with the Fujifilm GFX 50R, or in the case of the images of the 50R itself, with the Fujifilm X-Pro2.

All about trade-offs

I should start this first impressions review by talking about trade-offs. We all have to make them in life, all day, every day. Do we eat that delicious bagel and then try to sweat it out in the gym, or do we skip the breakfast and stick with an Americano? Do we buy that new medium format camera, or do we put food on the table? 

Often, we don’t have to make such binary decisions as these examples; we can compromise and find some middle ground that gets us most of the way there on both sides of the decision. We can have half a bagel and do a shorter run in the gym, or get the Fujifilm X-T3 and eat instead of getting the 50R, since 50MP isn’t really needed for Instagram anyhow!…
