unfortunately Fuji still has AF issues FUJI FIX THEM really why ruin a good name FUJI AF is very bad
I am just considering upgrading my GFX50S for the GFX100.
I only shoot landscape with the camera and like to print larger.
I am a little worried about my computer to process files, I guess some upgrading of ram will be required-
My real question is on a 30”x30” print how visible is the quality improvement.
Any advice would be appreciated
A little behind the times here. I loved your review on the GFX100, but parts of it gave me pause. Am considering purchasing the 100s for portraits, landscapes, and *some* slower-moving subjects on stage (jazz, classical music). It’s really going to be between the 100s and the upcoming Nikon Z9. Probably a dumb question, but so be it: you had noted that the Fuji 32-64 and 100-200 both demonstrated noticeably weaker image quality than their prime counterparts. Was it significantly weaker to the point where there would be little benefit (image quality-wise) in going with the Fuji, especially with all of its other limitations (slower focusing/frame rate, limited lens selection, etc.)?
One can review this and that feature of a camera, however, the difference between this one and a hundred others is that the IQ of this camera is the best I’ve ever seen. If photography is just taking nice pictures, then there are 50 that can do that. If it is to create awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping, soul-enriching images that stir the spirit in the hands of a photographic artist, then look no further.
I’m sure this seems late to the party but here goes.
I’m a landscape photographer with a 4×5 background. I work on tripod almost exclusively. I do not change menu options. Stitching is important to me therefore manual focus operation needs to be simple. I am interested in IBIS for handheld photos. There have been times in the field when using a tripod was not possible.
I wonder of there was a way to keep a button map with the camera menu. In other words some way to know which button did what. I’ve also thought about the 50 S and stitching but the files from the 100 look really good and make single capture a better proposition.
What do you think?
Fantastic review and wonderful photography!
Love your photographs (especially Jordan one’s, cause been to Jordan a few times and recollecting those places) and reviews. I need your suggestion on my next purchase has its going to be an expensive affair. I’m completely into photography,NO video for me. Statistically, I’m into Landscapes(75%), Portraits(20%) and sometimes Macro(5%). I’m considering the following initially a. Fuji GFX 50S + 23mm + 110mm b. Sony A7R4 + 16-35mm 2.8 + 135mmGM c. Canon EOS R (this will upgraded later or kept has 2nd) + RF15-35mm + RF70-200 d. Leica SL2 + 24-90mm
Only image quality matters, video/weight/price doesn’t matter. Latter on quality glass will be added.
Awaiting your valuable suggestion.
I have received a gfx 100 now, and this after earlier having both the 50s and the 50r. These were both fantastic cameras in many ways, but I have to say, the gfx 100 is something special. And it should be at that price point!
But I have to disagree on the ergonomics. I was a bit worried before trying it out, but I love it. I’ve read that many people do not, but I mean, if you consider something like this, try it out, you might be positively surprised. I too should have tried it first, but got an opertunity to get one fast in a trade deal for a sony 400mm GM lens. And I do not regret!
Simply loving it!
While the camera is no doubt impressive, I found the photos more interesting! Nasim, would you be able to share in which country you took these photos?
…it looks like the Faroe Islands, but wanted to check :)
Sid, Denmark, Faroe Islands and USA (Colorado).
Hi! Do you have any recommendations for a computer specs that can handle this camera? My working hard drives are all mac formatted so to avoid the nightmare of converting everything back to pc, I am shopping for a new mac. Could the new 16″ mac laptop maxed out cut it?
Chris, it depends on what you are planning to do with the files. If you want to post-process 100 MP RAW files, those specs on the MacBook Pro should work out. But for processing panoramas, you will need more RAM. That’s the issue I struggled with when working on images for this review – my iMac Pro with 32 GB of RAM suffered a lot.
