It’s an exciting time to be a photographer… The release of the Fujifilm GFX 50S signals a paradigm shift in medium format photography that has sent shockwaves throughout the market; but the GFX isn’t the only camera Fujifilm released that is changing everything. The Fujifilm X-T2 started the shift because it foreshadowed cameras like the Sony a9, which is an X-T2 without technological compromise. Mirrorless cameras have become impossible to ignore now that they can compete with the vast majority of traditional DSLR cameras, but the GFX is a cut above the rest.

The Fujifilm GFX 50S builds on most of the things that the Fujifilm X-T2 got right, yet some photographers expected more because they have become used to no compromise camera systems. This is somewhat understandable since Fujifilm is targeting high-end, full frame photographers looking to get a little more image quality for their dollar, but the GFX is a new system, and it is capable compared to other medium format cameras.
