I don’t think support is needed with the Fujifilm GFX100, but the lighter-bodied Fujifilm GFX100S could potentially fracture under some impact stresses with the bigger lenses because the base plate is toy-grade. Personally I’d prefer the GFX100, but not for the price difference.

The kit I’d recommend for the GFX 100S for any of the longer lenses. I use this with my P1/XF and Sony as well.
The MPR-Cinema rail is only 7.1” long (18 cm), which is much handier than the longer rail RRS includes in its long lens support kit. Buy the pieces unbundled – you save nothing by buying the kit, and you can get a shorter rail that is more practical.
It’s also critical to use either a custom plate / L bracket for the camera or a self-aligning camera plate that ensures the lens is as perfectly parallel to the rail as possible. I use these when I don’t have a custom plate or L bracket for a camera.
DIGLLOYD: a prudent approach.
Thanks for buying using these links.
