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.

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 fujirumors.com ;)

First Look Review: Fujinon GF250mmF4 R LM OIS WR

Reaching Out: GF250mmF4 R LM OIS WR

The new GF250mmF4 R LM OIS WR and the optional GF1.4x TC WR teleconverter lens bring genuine telephoto capability to the evolving Fujifilm GFX medium format system. Featuring impressive detail resolution and three-dimensional subject rendering, the rather moderately priced GF250mm equals a 198 mm lens in 35 mm “full-frame” terms, and its reach can be stretched to 350 mm by attaching the new 1.4x teleconverter. Fujifilm’s GF product introductions are completed by two macro expansion tubes that work with almost all existing GF lenses and can turn the GF120mmF4 into a true 1:1 macro lens.

So is it all worth it? You should be able to decide for yourself after reading this first-look review based on pre-production samples of the GF250mmF4 R LM OIS WR, GF1.4x TC WR, MCEX-18G WR and MCEX-45G WR.

Pentax 645Z Second Best Sensor Ever Tested after Hasselblad X1D… Fujifilm GFX 50S Test Coming Soon?

Pentax 645Z DxO Sensor Test

Back in October we reported that DxOmark said they will now test medium format cameras… and they kept their word.

The first camera they tested was the Hasselblad X1D, which immediatly jumped to the very top of the DxO Ranking, making it the best sensor they have ever tested (score 102). You can read their X1D report here.

Price and Specs: Pentax 645Z / Fujifilm GFX 50S / Hasselblad X1D

Now the full test of Pentax 645Z is also online and it confirms their preliminary results shared a few years ago. It gets a total score of 101. Check out the Pentax 645Z DxO sensor test here.

It’s clear from our testing that the Pentax 645Z’s sensor is extremely capable, coming within a whisper of matching the performance of the Hasselblad X1D sensor (our highest-scoring sensor to date). The 645Z’s high dynamic range and color sensitivity make it ideally suited for capturing the types of scenes that are traditionally favored by medium-format photographers — landscapes, weddings, portraits, and still lifes (commercial). Medium-format shooters are interesting capturing images with lots of detail, low noise, and smooth tonal gradations.

In addition, the Pentax 645Z controls noise well, making it suitable for use in relatively low light, and perhaps expanding the range of conditions in which medium-format cameras are traditionally used.

It’s interesting to compare the Pentax 645Z sensor against the Nikon D850’s because although the former is about 1.7x larger, it’s also around three years older. While the 645Z beats the Nikon sensor in our tests, the Nikon comes closer than you might expect, given the size difference. If Sony made a medium-format sensor with the same design as the D850, it would beat the sensors in both the Pentax 645Z and the Hassleblad X1D-50c.”

Now only the Fujifilm GFX 50S is missing, and let’s hope the test follows soon.

Fuji’s Secret Test

As I reported here, before making the final decision to go Medium Format, Fujifilm made a secret test, using a Pentax 645Z file. The results of this test convinced them to go Medium Format. What exactly happened and what did they test? A trusted source told us everything here :)

If you were lucky enough to attend the Photokina 2016 (like me), you will have noticed that the by very far busiest booth was the one of Fujifilm. So it was clear to me, that Fujifilm must have done many things right over the last year, in order to attract all these people.
