What’s the Best Pick: Fujifilm GFX100SII ($5,000) or GFX100II ($7,500) or GFX100S ($4,400)?

So we just leaked the price of the upcoming Fujifilm GFX100SII.

Now the question to answer is: what’s the best pick at this point?

  • Fujifilm GFX100SII – $5,000
    Fujifilm GFX100II – $7,500
    Fujifilm GFX100S – $4,400

This is a tough one to answer.

I mean, I am a very happy owner of the Fujifilm GFX100S myself, and my heart would say the GFX100S is never a bad pick, especially not at this price.

But Fujifilm really smashed the price on that model with the GFX100SII, bringing it dangerously close to the one its now heavily discounted predecessor.

It’s probably best to go for the GFX100SII at this point over the GFX100S.

Things change of course if we throw the Fujifilm GFX100II in the mix. Of course that one costs more, but it is also the flagship and it will beat the new GFX100SII in terms of specs and features.

Personally, if budget was not of concern, I’d go for the Fujifilm GFX100II right away.

But since budget is something most of us take into consideration, if I had no GFX camera and wanted to jump into digital medium format, I’d very likely wait go for the Fujifilm GFX100SII.


It’s part of Fuji’s 5th generation family, hence we can expect it to get more firmware love over the years. And it will have Reala Ace, better autofocus and many other good stuff that comes with the 5th generation platform.

Things would drastically change though if Fujifilm were to offer the GFX100S at $3,000. At this point it would be a deal too good to be true, and quite frankly a price where also plenty of full frame camera makers would start to worry.

I mean, 100 megapixel medium format in a camera body that is even slightly smaller than some full frame mirrorless cameras out there such as this one, would become a serious temptation for many out there. And it would also be my pick as a first GFX camera.

But as it stands now, I recommend to buy the Fujifilm GFX100SII or, if budget allows for it, go straight for the GFX100II.

Anyway… let us know in the survey below what your top pick would be.

As a First GFX camera, I'd Buy...

Fujifilm GFX100II New Dynamic Range King of Mirrorless Cameras

Photons to Photos has published its dynamic range results for the Fujifilm GFX100II.

As to expect, the GFX100II now takes the lead as the mirrorless camera that will give you the highest dynamic range with a slight boost over the Fujifilm GFX100S due to an optimized sensor design, as we explained here.

So, if you want to have a bit more margins in terms of dynamic range, the Fujifilm GFX100II is the way to go. And all this by delivering substantially more megapixel over its high resolution full frame competitors.

There are only 3 digital cameras that are better than the GFX100II listed on Photons to Photos:

  • Phase One IQ4
  • Phase One IQ3
  • Hasselblad H6D-100c

But the above are not mirrorless cameras. And they are huge, heavy and cost more than my car.

You can access the comparison we made above at this link (and also make your own one).
