The Fujifilm GFX 50S is impressively compact compared to the Canon 5DS R. Here are some excerpts form Michael Schnabl’s article on his experience.

“What immediately came to mind was the operating concept, with which one immediately immediately if one had already photographed with a camera from the X system, for a medium format camera compact dimensions and after a few test photos with 12,800 ISO, the incredibly good noise .”

“From the speed, the first test in good light showed that the camera can be quite well with cameras from the full-format mirror reflex segment – in poor light, the AF then but a bit slower – whereby I have not worked with any final firmware and final The low-light report camera or the sports camera, the camera will probably be less used for the studio, landscape, architecture and still life, but the autofocus speed is more than adequate for a medium-format camera Fast – just in case of still-life shots, the possibility to set the autofocus point to anywhere in the picture field is ingenious.”

“I was able to make a huge difference to the Canon immediately – the colors out of the cam – what you already know of the other cameras of the X-system continues here – Fuji simply produces the more beautiful colors and the JPG’s look really good out.”

You can read Michael’s translated full impressions here, it sounds like the 5DSR falls quickly behind the GFX 50s from his account.
