With full apologies to Fujifilm (it’s not fair I suppose and will light up the Fujifilm message boards), but this made me laugh, I do not disagree, and I think it hits a nail on the head that cannot be unhit. From a reader who first tried the GFX and now has the X1D, expressing his own reactions:
The GFX is a bit of a retro nightmare for me in comparison. Basically the GFX is a continuation of the D810 (in my mind, with all of the past problems, etc.) but more slumming, like going from a Porsche Cayenne to a Nissan Pathfinder. The GFX is, for my work, not an improvement on the D810, but a come-down.
Choosing a camera is personal in some ways, and so the above comment is relevant or irrelevant on a personal basis. I find it highly relevant in this sense: it might apply or might anti-apply—different people shoot differently.
