Fujifilm GFX 50R Reality Check: About Impossible Dreams and Realistic Expectations

Fujifilm GFX 50R Reality Check

Here on FujiRumors, we shared the first Fujifilm GFX 50R rumors back in December 2017.

Since we shared the rumors, I have read lots of unrealistic expectations regarding this camera by some FR-readers. And while a few of you guys might have been mislead by incorrect rumors (not shared by FujiRumors), some others simply put too many expectations into a camera, the Fujifilm GFX 50R, which will not be a revolution over the Fujifilm GFX 50S (but you will really like it anyway ;) )

So I thought to set things right, and say a few things.

Why did Fujifilm made the Fujifilm GFX 50R?

Fujifilm GFX 50R Coming September 25 for Around $4,500: No Cooling Box, Dual SD-Card Slot, 2 Way Tilt Screen and More Specs

Fujifilm GFX 50R

The Fujifilm GFX 50R will be announced September 25th at 07:30 AM York time. That’s when Fujifilm has its press conference ahead of photokina.

Let’s start with the price.

I have it 100% confirmed by multiple trusted sources, that the Fujifilm GFX 50R will cost around $4,500. Forget the grain of salt… that’s a fact! ;)

The final price has not yet been set, but there won’t be huge variations from that “around $4,500” (the GFX 50S currently sells for $5,849 with a $650 discount).

And now the rest.


We already knew about the Fujifilm GFX 50R that:

And here is the new stuff. All trusted. No grain of salt needed.

  • 2 way tilt screen (and not 3 way, like GFX 50S or Fujifilm X-T3)
  • dual SD-card slot
  • button layout/look similar to X-E3 (joystick etc), with a few differences, such as the MCS switch on the back of the camera instead than on the front like X-E3.
  • no more “cooling box” (meaning the “brick” at the back of the LCD that the Fujifilm GFX 50S has)

Finally we will have the first rangefinder-styled Fujifilm with tilt screen :)


  • same button layout as the X-E3, but with a larger size
  • There is no ISO dial, only the shutter and exposure compensation dial
  • This GFX-50R has no OLED shoulder screen
  • equipped with a tilt screen, with a lever
  • coming with a new 40mm pancake lens.
  • the thickness will be less than 42mm
  • the weight is below 800g
  • the price is expected to be 3600 …
  • [TO THE SOURCE WHO CONTATCTS ME ANONYMOUSY: can we talk via email? Would be great.]

Fujifilm GFX 50R Shipping in October – UPDATE

Fujifilm GFX 50R

According to the source (相机Beta), who 2 days ago leaked the first image of the Fujifilm GFX 50R, the Fujifilm GFX 50R will be released in October (meaning shipping, not announcement).

UPDATE: A Chinese reader told me that the word should be translated with “announced” and not “released (or shipped)”. Bad google translation apparently.

The Fujifilm GFX 50R will be an “affordable” rangefinder styled medium format camera. The final price has yet to be decided, but as we reported 2 days ago, just the 50 MP sensor used in the GFX costs $2,000 (same price also for the Hasselblad X1D). So my guess is that Fujifilm will have a hard time to sell it below $4,000.

Fujifilm GFX 50R: The 50 Megapixel Medium Format Sensor Costs $2,000

Fujifilm GFX 50R Sensor

Recently I was talking to sources, asking how moch the Fujifilm GFX 50R will cost.

I didn’t get an answer yet (no final price for the Fujifilm GFX 50R has been set yet), but I got to hear an interesting tidbit.

The 50 megapixel medium format sensor of the Fujifilm GFX alone costs $2,000!

This comes from trusted source, hence you don’t need to take any grain of salt.

With that said, it seems clear to me that it will be hard for Fujifilm to price the Fujifilm GFX 50R below $4,000, since you have to build also an entire camera around that $2,000 sensor and ship it all over the world, pay the labor cost etc.

*** Fujifilm GFX 50R Real Life Image ***

Quick notice: unlike suggested elsewere, the Fujifilm GFX 50R won’t be announced on September 23 ±1 day but on another day.

HOT!!! Fujifilm GFX 50R First Image Leaked?

Fujifilm GFX 50 R

Could this be the first real life image of the Fujifilm GFX 50 R? (thanks for sharing)

If yes, then here is what we can say:

  • rangefinder style camera
  • EVF only
  • diopter adjustment like on X-Pro2 and not on X-E3
  • makes a compact impression
  • in this image, there is probably a flash trigger attached to the hot shoe

We remind you that the Fujifilm GFX 50 R will be launched around photokina (which takes place between 26 to 29 September). It will be rangefinder styled medium format camera and if this image is real, with EVF only, hence more similar to the Fujifilm X-E3 than to the Fujifilm X-Pro3.

The final Fujifilm GFX 50 R price has not yet been set, I guess also because Fujifilm wants to see at what price tag the Full Frame Canon EOS R is. But in any case it will be significantly less than Fujiilm GFX 50S

But already now I feel pretty confident to claim, that the Fujiflm GFX 50R will look much better than the Fujifilm GFX 50S.

Fujifilm X-T3 vs Nikon Z6 vs Z7 vs Fujifilm GFX 50R vs 50S vs X-H1 vs X-T2 – The Complete SPECS & SIZE Comparison

Fujifilm Vs. Nikon Mirrorless

The Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z7 have been announced and are now available for pre-order.

So how do Nikon’s new mirrorless cameras compare to Fujifilm’s offering?

Well, I have created a comprehensive specs comparison, and included also the Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujifilm GFX 50R to the list.

While we know a lot about the Fujifilm X-T3 and I can already insert lots of specs in the list, we know not so much about the GFX 50R. However, it should have about the same specs of the GFX 50S, just in another form factor (rangefinder) and for a much cheaper price. So there won’t be big surprises with the GFX 50R.

Both Nikon’s are surely very good cameras. There are many specs to love, but also some, that might not really incentivize Nikon DSLR shooters to switch to Nikon mirrorless Z6 or Z7.

In fact, both cameras have:

  • only 1 XQD card slot (might be a dealbreaker for Pros)
  • battery life is around 310/330 shots (welcome to mirrorless, Nikon)
  • there is no eye-detection AF (let’s hope it comes via firmware update)

But as said, Nikon did lots of other things right. Check out the Nikon Z6 specs at BH and Nikon Z7 specs at BH.

Down below you can find the complete Nikon Z6/7 Vs. Fujifilm X-T3, X-T2, X-H1, GFX 50R and GFX50S comparison. If you prefer, download the PDF comparison file form our dropbox.

Also, Camerasize has now the Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z7 in their database. You can compare it to all the cameras you want at camerasize here. The Fujifilm GFX 50S vs Nikon Z comparisons can be found at photosku.

NOTE: I notice that all our Fujifilm X-T3 rumors keep up getting copied (even the wrong ones ;) ). This means that despite constant shitstorms on FR, they trust and love us. Hence, I send them back some love 😘. Just don’t forget to quote ;)

Fujifilm Q1 FY 2019/3 Financial Results: Upfront R&D Investment for Fujifilm X-T3, GFX 50R and GFX 100S Stops Operating Income Grow

Fujifilm Financial Results for FY2019/3 1st Quarter

Fujifilm just published the 1st quarter results for the Financial Year 2019. Fujifilm confirms to be a healthy company, but the overall operating income in the imaging solutions segment went down 2.2%…

due to such factors as upfront R&D investment for next generation processor and sensor for digital cameras and others.”

Of course they mainly refer to the Fujifilm X-T3 and the Fujifilm GFX 100S, which will both feature a new sensor and new processor, but also the Fujifilm GFX 50R medium format camera (coming at Photokina this year) might have needed a major R&D investment.

Regarding the FUJIFILM X-H1 and FUJIFILM X-T100, in one report they write that sales were “solid” and in another report they write sales were “strong“.

Fujifilm Registeres One More Camera. Total of 3 Unreleased Cameras Registered. Fujifilm X-T3, GFX 50R and XF10?

Upcoming Fujfilm Cameras

Fujifilm just registered one more camera, the FF 180004, that has the same radio parts of the Fujifilm X-H1 and X-E3 (registration here – via nokishita)

So we now have three unreleased cameras registered, that should be announced by the end of this summer:

  • FF 180002: Camera similar in size to Fujifilm X70. Very likely the Fujifilm XF10. To be announced July 5.
  • FF 180003: Camera with bluetooth version 4.2. We reported here.
  • FF 180004: Camera with radio parts like Fujifilm X-H1 and X-E3.

The two registered cameras could be Fujifilm GFX 50R and Fujifilm X-T3.

“Kaizen? Other Companies Want Cameras to be Like Toilet Paper, But Not Fujifilm.” Will Fujifilm Rise Up to the Top with GFX 50R? – JChristina

Fujifilm – The Dark Horse Mirrorless Camera Wars?

Yes I know, it might seem strange to write a pro-Kaizen article right after Fujifilm pulled off the massive X-T2 firmware because it was faulty. Fujifilm did earn quite some attacks becasue of this, and some are making fun out of this situation.

So maybe Fujifilm should do it like any other brand: do not offer any major firmware update at all, only mini bug-fix updates, so they will avoid attacks.

Or maybe not… maybe Fujifilm should continue to deliver huge firmware updates for older cameras like they did over the last 6+ years. And in all these years I remember I think 2 or 3 rollback firmware updates overall.

Well, I gladly accept the remote possibility of a buggy firmware, if what I get is years of excellent support for my cameras via firmware update.

And I know that overall, Fuji’s Kaizen approach is applauded by many, and today we would like to feature a video JCristina. He says about Kaizen:

  • Kaizen Firmware updates makes them stand out from Sony, Canon and Nikon. They don’t just fix things, but they give you more that extend the life of their cameras
  • Most camera manufacturers want their cameras to be like toilet paper. They want you to use it for a set period of time, throw them in the garbage and they buy another roll

JCristina continues by discussing Fuji’s decision to skip full frame and go directly medium format. Especially the Fujifilm GFX 50R will be a smart move to make Medium Format go mainstream.

  • They don’t play the full frame war. They have one of the best APS-C cameras on the market, and they went directly Medium Format
  • The Fujifilm GFX 50R will soon give you a medium format mirrorless option at the price of the Sony A9
  • Watch Fujifilm, and what happens after photokina, if they rise up to the top with that medium format GFX 50R

The Fujifilm GFX 50R will be announced at photokina at the end September (or shortly before).

The price for the Fujifilm GFX 50R has not yet been set, simply because this is about the last thing Fujifilm decides. Only one thing is sure: it will be significantly more affordable than the Fujifilm GFX 50S.
