Fujifilm GFX 50R Roundup

Yes, I am a Fuji fanboy, otherwise I would not have opened FujiRumors in times, where many of you probably didn’t even knew that Fujifilm makes digital mirrorless cameras.

But this does not stop me from sharing everything, the good and the bad, that people say about Fujifilm.

In today’s roundup, 100% focused on the Fujifilm GFX 50R (which now costs $3,999 only!), I will share a huge amount of Fuji GFX50R reviews.

On the positive side, we notice the ePhotozine review, which highly recommends the Fujifilm GFX 50R and says:

Delivering medium format image quality, the camera is a step up in performance compared to a full-frame DSLR or mirrorless camera, with excellent noise control, and exceptional levels of detail possible. […] the next step up in image quality […] Highly Recommended

Also lensrentals is happy and says:

Incredible price point for camera and exceptional image quality

On the negative side, we can find Matt Granger’s review, who says it has the “worst ergonomics on any camera he ever used” and he is disappointed with its focus tracking capabilities. He does not recommend to buy this camera.

Matt has spoken very good about Fujifilm many times in the past, so do not start attacking him about being a Nikon/Sony fanboy or biased in any way. It’s just his opinion after having used the camera.

Matt Granger Fujifilm GFX 50R Review (video below). Here are the key points:

  • not great ergonomics
  • you can get lots of details in the files
  • GF110mm f/2 is a beautiful performer
  • Fujifilm X-H1 has better ergonomics and much more usable autofocus
  • GFX50R autofocus tracking does not work
  • does not have the versatility of a DSLR, since it has no fast reliable autofocus
  • GFX 50R image quality is higher than top end DSLR, but not that much. Sensor is old
  • He does not recommend buying it
  • not suitable for fast situation, but with static or slow subjects, the reward is outstanding image quality
  • worst ergonomics on any camera he ever used
  • big and heavy lenses, but camera has no grip
  • Hasselblad X1D is much better designed
