I promise this will be the last time FujiRumors will talk about the DPReview article. But I just wanted to show you two things:
ISO INVARIANCE TEST
I don’t know you, but when I use DPReviews own studio comparison tool, and make a 6 stop push starting from ISO 100, I can see a clear difference (see screenshot above). Look at the purple thread, which basically loses completely its texture in the Canon 5DSr and looks not good on the A7RII, too. The D810 is better than the other FF cameras, but the GFX 50s is still visibly better than the D810.
NOTE: I’m not saying the other cameras perform bad, not at all. I just say the GFX performs better.
I don’t know why DPReview did not mention the ISO invariance test results in their article, where they criticized the GFX. It’s a very important test, for example for landscape photographers, who want to be able to recover shadows with as little noise and retaining as much details as possible.
The GFX combines everything into one camera: lots of details, great dynamic range and awesome noise performance.
Is it worth the extra money over a high-end APS-C or FF camera? I don’t know, and luckily it’s a question I don’t have to think about it too much, since the GFX does not get along well with my bank account anyway.
With that said, I’m still firmely convinced that our beloved APS-C X-series cameras can do 90% of what the GFX does.
But yes, if you want the ultimate image quality and ultimate freedom to push your files to the limit, then the GFX is the upgrade you are looking for, since it does these 10% extra you are looking for better than any APS-C or Full Frame camera out there (as demonstrated also by DPR’s own studio tests).
That’s all folks :)
