CSTV: Fujifilm GFX 50S Hands-On Field Test in Japan

CameraStoreTV released the GFX review they teased a few weeks ago and it covers all of the current glass and a future lens. During CSTV’s trip to Japan, they were given access to all 5 of the now current GFX lenses and were shown the Fujinon GF 45mm f2.8 R WR, which they call light. The GF 45mm should be like the current GF 63mm, which makes the Fuji GFX an extremely portable medium format camera. The Fujifilm GFX LM lenses at this time are on the heavy side, but the Fujinon GF 110mm f2 R LM WR isn’t bad compared to the other LM glass currently available. Hopefully, Fujifilm can get the weight down on the LM design lenses going forward.

  • They found the camera comfortable and very professional looking, but hope there will be a more attractive model in the future. Maybe a GFX 50R.
  • AF is fast in day light but slows down at night and AF-C is useless.
  • Chris shot the GFX at night around Japan and was able to drop the shutter speed lower than other cameras.
  • Great shutter that creates minimal vibration
  • He didn’t need his tripod
  • Touch screen lags a little but is good
  • You can adapt glass with the focal plane shutter
  • Everything is weather resistant at this time
  • Great battery life
  • Tons of dynamic range
  • Easy to get colors right
  • Continue to hammer on the 1/125 sync speed (Which FujiAddict readers should know is a non issue by now, because there are a lot of HSS solutions)
  • Their guest is convinced and switching to Fuji
