TheCameraStoreTV is in the process of reviewing the Fujifilm GFX. In yesterday’s facebook live stream they quickly shared their very first GFX impressions (starts min. 8:15). They then stop talking about the GFX and start again at 34:30, where they compare it to the Pentax K1. Below their findings. Full (and interesting) Live Stream here.
- It’s not pretty, but feels fantastic, well designed
- It’s practical and functional
- Great Viewfinder
- it focusses surprisingly fast in AF-S (AF-C is “kind of garbage” with the 63mm being better for AF-C)
- lenses feel solid
- the ability to adapt affordable Medium Format lenses is the primary advantage over the Hasselblad X1D
- Eye AF struggling a bit
- The GFX is going to kick butt in landscape and studio, as well as on the street maybe.
- For landscape, Jordan would go for the Pentax K1 because of the Pixel shift. But Jordan would use the GFX if things are moving in the frame, and for portraiture, and also for street photography
- The bigger MF sensor on the GFX delivers a certain look and aesthetics, that is great for portraits
- Jordan prefers the 4:3 aspect ratio of for stills [note: the GFX is 43 native]
Ok, we all had 2 days of intense pixel peeping after imaging-resource published their lab samples. So time to leave the pixel peeping world, and share some GFX images from our closed Fujifilm GFX Group. And indeed, many fellow GFX owners are adapting all kind of lenses on their GFX and sharing their results.
And remember that for GFX tailored updates, you can follow the Fujifilm GFX facebook page.

Comment by Peter S.: Looking through the gate gives you a really good idea of the Dynamic Range of this camera. Excellent!

Malvin: No RAW support in Lightroom yet for the GFX, so I shot RAW in camera and exported to TIFF using the in-camera raw converter, then imported the files into Lightroom and worked on them… the next best thing I can get to RAW for now.
