Fujifilm GFX100S vs Fujifilm GFX100: Which is Better, Especially Given the Backorder Situation?

Reader Michael K writes:

The GFX100s is on like 3+ month back order here in UK and now I see these shutter issues.

Other than size and cost is there any disadvantage to getting a GFX100?

Right now if you buy a GFX100 and a set of 4 or 5 lenses, and after a bit of haggling on the £20,000 purchase price it's pretty much a wash on cost of the body as Fujifilm in UK is offering big lens discounts if you purchase a GFX100 (not the "s") - I am sure because of the "s" supply issues.

So if it's just about size I might simply get a GFX100 and set of lenses for now.

DIGLLOYD: if you can set aside the bulk and weight of the Fujifilm GFX100 (and for most of us the $4000 higher cost), it has some advantages over the Fujifilm GFX100S.

The GFX100 has a higher-resolution EVF with better magnification. This is the biggest deal to me, since the EVF is the primary interface for using the camera. OTOH, it is positioned in a way that together with the weight, it likes to punish my upper stomach on hikes.

The GFX100 also has a vertical shutter release, rear informational LCD, dual batteries, and more robust construction. And AFAIK, no risk of a stuck shutter.

Put another way: if I had the choice of the GFX100S or the GFX100, which would I choose? Sight unseen I’d probably go with the GFX100S because of its weight/size advantage, but I have yet to use its EVF or handle it to see if there are any haptic/ergonomic things that put me off. I will have better insight when it arrives in two days.
