Fuji GFX 100S


Sept 25 is announcement date of the "rangerfinder" Fuji 51mp body.As well as a new cheapish pancake lens.

News is there is also a "development announcement" of the new flagship 100mp MF body.

This body is reportedly coming in 2019,we could know more in a couple of weeks!

Something to be called the GFX 50R is being touted as the cheapest medium format digital camera ever. The Pentax 645Z plays in the affordable market as well. It is affordable compared to a Hasselblad but that is all very relative. It should be interesting to see just how affordable this Fujifilm model is. Not to mention how many 645Z sales it steals. Or is Fujifilm targeting the Nikon D850 buyer?

The fact there is a FF crop mode and various AF adapters available, yes! the D850, A7r3,5Dmk4 are all targets.

The Fuji wont shoot as fast though,its about Pentax K-1 speed(i think in FF mode).MF isnt made for sports!ha ha.

Pricing isnt official,but possibly U$3600 body or U$ 4500 with the new 40mm pancake.These are prices ive seen on rumour sites.Real prices may differ of course.

The body is like an XE3 but larger and the screen moves(its fixed on xe3).Weather sealing with dual slots(XE3 doesnt have these).

The XE-3 is a neat little camera to use,the 50R is for people with larger hands and wallets!

On Sept 23 the 100S becomes official,many specs are known but maybe some surprises.

U$9999 has been bandied around,so ya could get change from 10K!

Fuji still has a lot of work to do in terms of AF performance and general camera speed. I hope they can catch up because the GFX line is very interesting.
