Fujifilm GFX 50R with GF50mm Hands on Photos, Lab Test Shots, First Looks and FUJI GUYS Photokina 2018 Wrap Up

Fujifilm GFX 50R

ePhotozine published a couple of hands-on photos of the Fujifilm GFX 50R with GF 50mmF3.5.

I am pretty sure ePhotozine just did it just to trigger my GAS even further, because I kind of fell in love with the Fujifilm GFX 50R while trying it out at the Fujifilm booth.

They also shared hands on images of the GF45-100mm and GF 100-200mm here.

Down below Lok’s Fujifilm GFX 50R first look and here are the dpreview sample images.

And despite all the reviewers make a brilliang job covering the Fujifilm GFX 50R, they have a hard job this time, since it has the exact same performance of the Fujifilm GFX 50S. The only difference is the design, and I strongly invite you to test it out by yourself, because what I loved to handle on the booth, you might hate it.

And in no case I would recommend this camera to left eye shooters, since you are going to cover the screen with your face, and you can forget to swipe the touch screen to access your custom functions while you have your eye on the viewfinder. The swipe function will be used a lot, since there is not D-Pad, where to assign custom functions.

With that said, if you are a rangefinder lover, then you probably already are right eye dominant and the corner viewfinder placement.

DRPeview Fujinon GF 50mm f/3.5 Samples, Rico’s First Look and Fujifilm Promo Videos

The Fujinon GF50mm f/3.5 will start shipping at the end of September. It’s a top seller at BHphoto, and my guess is that it will become extremely popular amongst GFX shooters.

There isn’t much content out there. But luckily there is good one, thanks to Rico Pfirstinger.

Lots of samples, as well as a comprehensive write-up at our German sister forum (the English Fuji forum here).

Top 3 Selling Cameras, Lenses, Software and Accessories for July on FujiRumors

Back in June we had a huge surprise: the Fujifilm GFX100 was selling better than the Fujifilm X-T3.

In fact my sources say pre-orders triple Fujifilm’s forecast and Fujifilm managers officially said here pre-orders are “more than twice” what they expected

So which cameras and lenses take the top spot in terms of sales in July? Check it out below.

Of course, the rankings below are representative only for the FujiRumors community and not for overall sales.

TOP 3 SELLING…

Top Accessories

I bought a SanDisk 128GB Ultra Dual Drive USB Type-C myself during Amazon Prime, and so far I am extremely happy with it. Now I have 1 device that I can use for my MacBook Pro (USB-C) and the ancient computers at my school (USB-3). Both connectors slide completely into the stick, making the whole USB stick very compact at no risk to damage the connectors.

The best thing of all, even after Amazon Prime, there is still a huge discount on the SanDisk Ultra Dual Drive.

The best-selling SD-Card was the Fujifilm recommended Lexar 2000x UHS-II.

Last but not least, the Textured Rubber Non Slip Grip Tape, a useful (and cheap) accessory to add more grip to your smartphone, laptop and camera (especially the GFX100, as you can see here).

Top X Series Cameras

The most surprising fact for me here, is that we find the Fujifilm X-E3 on the third position instead of the Fujifilm X-H1, which in my opinion currently represents the best value for money deal in the entire Fujifilm universe.

Some Fujifilm X-E3 combos are marked as discontinued and we already reported that the X-E3 outsells all its predecessors. This gives good hopes for the X-E line to be kept alive (it was not always like this).

The current $100 discount on X-E3 might help to boost sales even more.

Top XF Lenses

I predict this: the Fujinon XF16-80 will become one of Fujifilm’s best-selling lenses.

I don’t know why Fujifilm does not offer it as a kit lens (hence with a discount if bundled with a camera), but if at some point Fujifilm will decide to offer it as a kit lens, then I think this will boost sales for that lens even more.

For the rest, it seems people’s hunger for 50mm equivalent focal length (including mine) is insatiable.

Top X Mount Third Party Lenses

The Samyang 12mm f/2 enjoyed good sales during Amazon Prime.

The Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 AF is arguably the most interesting third-party X mount lens on the market right now. And you know what? There are 3 more Viltrox AF lenses for Fujifilm X mount coming. Check out all details here.

The Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 has been kicked out of the ranking by a couple of 7Artisans lenses, with the new 60mm f/2.8 macro on top.

Top GFX Gear

Fujifilm GFX 5oS sales are struggling, despite the lower price tag. People seem to prefer either the even cheaper Fujifilm GFX 50R (which is still $500 off) or the brand new Fujifilm GFX 100.

Top G Mount Lenses

The compact Fujinon GF 50mm f/3.5 seems to be a winner for Fujifilm. It is marked as top seller at BHphoto.

The brand new Laowa 17mm f/4 has kicked Fuji’s own wide option, the Fujinon GF23mm f/4, out of the ranking.

Top Software

  1. Luminar 4
  2. Capture One Pro 12 (save 50%)
  3. Adobe Creative Cloud

A great launch deal and the fake sky replacement feature make Luminar 4 the by far best-selling software in July, dethroning Capture One Pro 12, which dominated basically the entire year 2019.
