Although I call the GFX a studio camera, this is only half true. Since the body and every lens is WR (weather resistant), this camera is a ruggedly built camera that can be used out in the field for all weather conditions. Coupled with the new GF 45mm lens, I used the GFX like I would the X100F, as an EDC all scenario camera. Did it work? It did in my hands, but would I recommend it to the average photographer?
