Fujifilm GFX100 II has 21% Better Autofocus Tracking Accuracy than GFX100S and We are All saying it Wrong!

Autofocus Boost

Fujifilm USA manager Michael Bulbenko has shared a video called “Understanding Fujifilm GFX100II“.

Now, I will let you watch the video below, where he runs over the specs.

But there is one thing that Michael Bulbenko says that I’d like to hightlight because I haven’t seen it mentioned anywhere else:

  • better autofocus accuracy: “the GFX100II has a 21% improvement in the hit rate of locking on to focus compared to GFX100S

That’s of course a welcome improvement if you shoot in autofocus continous.

More accuracy combined with higher frames per second (8fps on GFX100II vs 5fps on GFX100S) will lead to more keepers.

But I dare to say that, if you are like me and shoot with your GFX in single AF or max 3 fps, then the 21% improvement are welcome, but not crucial.

What’s more important , for my shooting style, is the new autofocus algorithm and how reliable it is in tracking eyes/faces/subjects before I even press the shutter button.

My X-T5 is a huge step forward in this regard compared to anything else I owned before in the X series.

If the GFX100II has the same “confidence”, then this would be a big deal for me.

We are Saying it Wrong

Also curious: throughout the entire video Michael calls the GFX100II “the second” and not “two“.

And just today, Fujifilm USA released one of their fun product launch videos where they underline again that it’s “the second” and not “two”.

I guess the memo did not arrive to Fujifilm Japan, because during the Fujifilm X Summit, the Japanese managers kept calling it Fujifilm GFX100 “two” ;).

With that said, you can enjoy both videos down below.

Fujifilm to Produce 1,500 Fujifilm GFX100 II per Month Initially

The Fujifilm GFX100 II will start shipping in late September.

Hopefully there will be enough samples around, because initially Fujifilm will produce 1,500 Fujifilm GFX100 II samples a month.

Now, I have no idea how pre-orders are going, but 1,500 units a month does not sound like a whole lot of cameras.

But what I know is that the Fujifilm GFX100 II is a fantastic camera and if it gets the success that it deserves, then I am afraid that there could be shortages with the shipping.

Fujifilm GFX100 II IBIS Performance with GF Lenses (vs GFX100S)

Thanks to a new smart system that relies not only on the gyro sensor to stabilise the sensor, but also uses data from the image sensor itself to fine tune stabilisation (more about it in our X summit summary), the Fujifilm GFX100II is capable of achieving 8 stops IBIS.

But this peak 8 stops performance is achieved not with all lenses.

In the chart above shared by Ken L Photo (in text format below) you can see how many stops of IBIS you get on the GFX100II with each GF lens. Also, you get the IBIS performance comparison with the Fujifilm GFX100S.
