DxOMark Will Test Medium Format Cameras Soon. Fujifilm GFX 50S to be Tested Soon?


Recently I asked DxO Mark on Twitter why they do not test the Fujifilm GFX 50s.

They answered, they do not test X-Trans cameras, because their RAW measurements were designed for Bayer RGB files.

I replied that the Fujifilm GFX 50S has a Bayer sensor… and they never answered again.

But maybe something is moving now. DxOmark told to Petapixel here:

“We made a pause on medium format a few years ago just because of our production bandwidth, […] We will now soon republish this type of camera, and Pentax 645Z should be published soon […] in a matter of days.”

DxOMark already started testing the Pentax 645Z a few years ago, but never finshied the complete test. However, somehow the totale score leaked on their website anyway, and it was a stellar 101. So the Pentax 645Z, presented back in April 2014, scored even better than the brand new Nikon D850.

It will be interesting to see if the full Pentax 645Z test, that will be published by DxOmark soon, will confirm the stellar 101 score.

And let’s hope that the Fujifilm GFX 50S will be next.
