Hands-on with Fujifilm GFX 50S at dpreview:

  • The first thing that strikes you when you pick up the GFX 50S for the first time is its weight – or rather it’s lack of weight. Considering the size of its sensor, the GFX 50S is impressively small and light.
  • The body is weather-sealed and build quality is superb
  • The viewfinder is lovely, and at least a match for the excellent finder in the X-T2 in terms of clarity and size.
  • impressively short flange-back distance
  • Despite the obvious similarities to the imaging chips used in the Pentax 645Z and other cameras, Fujifilm is insisting that this is a new, Fujifilm-developed sensor
