DPReview Fujifilm GFX 50R Silver Award: “Exceptional Image Quality in a Reasonably Compact and Well-Built Body”


Fujifilm GFX 50R

DPReview just published their full Fujifilm GFX 50R review, and it gets a silver award with 84% overall score.

Here are their Pros and Cons:

What We Liked

  • Superb image quality
  • High resolution and extensive dynamic range
  • GF lenses are impressive
  • Least expensive medium format system
  • Excellent JPEG engine
  • Easy-to-use Wi-Fi

What We Didn’t Like

  • Fewer direct controls than 50S
  • Significant rolling shutter in e-shutter mode
  • Video performance is disappointing
  • Autofocus relatively slow


The Fujifilm GFX 50R brings medium format digital photography down to a more attainable price point than we’ve seen before, and does so while offering exceptional image quality in a reasonably compact yet well-built body. The ergonomics suffer a bit from the smaller grip, and some competitors with smaller sensors suffer only a slight image quality hit while being more flexible overall. That said, the GFX 50R remains a joy to use, the images a joy to view, and it’s an excellent way to get access to Fujifilm’s lineup of GF medium format lenses
