Compact, Enjoyable Medium Format that Might Surprise and Delight — Fujifilm GFX-50R just $2999

Fujifilm GFX-50R

Too pricey to take the $6000 plunge with the Fujifilm GFX100S ?

Ease into Fujifilm medium format at a 35mm price, with the Fujifilm GFX-50R, now $2999 (discounted $1500, $500 more than last month). See items below. That’s less than the Sony A7R IV sold for most of its tenure.

Add one lens to start, either the Fujifilm GF 50/3.5, or the Fujifilm GF 30/3.5, but I advise the 50mm because the combination is absolutely perfect for an everyday carry, and widely-applicable for people to landscape to all-around snappage.

You will find that the combination 50R + 50/3.5 is a very different feel from carrying a zoom lens, or even the 30/3.5. So I emphasize that the 50mm is the way to go for highest enjoyment.

For those used to a 50mm on the 35mm format, you will find a qualititively very different feel to the images that result on the 44 X 33mm sensor. If you’re looking for something new and refreshing, this might be your ticket. Of course I’d rather have the Fujifilm GFX100S, but it is twice the price. And the Fujifilm GFX 50S II is also a fine choice (and with IBIS), but another $1000 (which buys you the 50mm). If you like the system, you can alway buy the next generation 100 megapixel body in a year or two, and maybe down into the $4000 range by then.

Hopefully the $500 discounts that have been seen repeatedly in 2021 will crop up again, but demand for Fujifilm lenses has been very strong with the arrival of the GFX100S, so it might be a good long time before that happens. Bookmark the Fujifilm medium format wishlist page and glance at it periodically (prices updated every day).
