Keep in mind that these are JPEGs from a pre-production Fujifilm GFX100. We can’t really make final conclusions, until we finally have standardized tests using RAW files developed in the same RAW converter.
Anyway, judging from the JPEGs, the Fujifilm GFX100 beats them all in terms of sharpness and high ISO performance, including the $30,000 (or is it $50,000) Phase One XF IQ3 100MP.
However, the there are some problems: for example, GFX100 sample was shot at f/8, whereas GFX50 at f/9. Let’s hope their RAW comparison will be more accurate.
Holy Crop! The Fujifilm GFX100 is pixel peeper paradise!
Down below I share some samples available at the imaging-resource comparometer here, where you can compare the Fujifilm GFX100 to any other camera in their database.
We love photography, because we can experience a childish joy of discovery, sometimes also by digging deep into the most technical aspects of it. :)
Photons to Photos added the Panasonic S1R full frame camera to their database, and you can now compare it to all other cameras, including the Fujifilm GFX 50s and GFX 50R. You can manipulate the chart here.
When it comes to maximum photographic dynamic range, the Panasonic S1R is slightly better than the Fujifilm GFX50S.
It looks like Sony raised the bar once again, when it comes to eye-AF and AF-tracking.
Tony Northrup compared the eye-AF of the brand new Sony A6400, with the one of the Fujifilm X-T3, Sony A6500, Sony A9 and Sony A7rIII. He moved very harshly and pushed the magic eye-AF algorithms of the different cameras to their limits. Here are his results.
Fujifilm X-T3 – 24% in focus
Sony a6500 – 37% in focus
Sony a7RIII – 60% in focus
Sony a6400 – 98% in focus
Sony a9 – 100% in focus
Sony’s eye-AF also works from more distance to the subject than Fuji’s.
So, Fuji, time to work on the next Kaizen firmware update to catch up ;) .
