Back in 2017, Fujifilm raised the game with their release of the Fujifilm GFX 50S, a compact medium format mirrorless camera that delivered stupendous image quality.
They made the bold move of jumping straight from their APS-C sensor mirrorless range to medium format, completely skipping any full frame offering.
It was a hit. The image quality and build quality attracted many professionals to the GFX range, especially because the price point wasn't that much higher than many high-end full frame DSLRs. It's still expensive, mind you.
If your wallet doesn't stretch that far, there are plenty of reasonably priced cameras and lenses from Fujifilm.
We're a couple of years down the line now and Fujifilm's range of G Mount lenses has grown, so the time has come for them to release another flagship model.
It's a biggie too…
The Fujifilm GFX100.
As you might have guessed from the name, this new offering will deliver a whopping 102 megapixels from the medium format sensor, which is 70% larger than the 35mm full-frame sensors.
That's not all though. Let's run through some of the main features:
Not a bad specifications list at all, I'm sure you'll agree.
All this comes in a package that's similar in size and weight to flagship DSLRs such as the Nikon D850 and the Canon 5D MkIV.
It also comes with an integrated vertical battery grip that can harbor two NP-T125 batteries, dual SD card slots, and a brand new interface that controversially gets rid of their trademark set of manual dials in favor of a more simplified setup.
The Fujifilm GFX100 will be released at the end of June, and as you'd expect it comes at a premium - A $9,999.95 premium , to be exact.
Although, considering it's specs sheet this isn't actually too bad of a deal if you've got some deep pockets.
