Fujifilm GFX 50S Vs. Pentax 645Z Vs. Canon 5DSR


It’s been a while since someone compared these three-megapixel monsters and the playing field isn’t exactly even with all the lenses being ever so slightly different. At least the reviewer is fair about his comparison and provides plenty of examples to back up his opinions, but I would like to see him compare a GF 110mm f2 if he want’s more subject isolation.

The testing was done with: Fuji GFX 50S with Fuji 63mm f2.8 vs Pentax 645Z with Pentax 55mm f2.8 vs Canon 5DSR with Sigma 50mm f1.4 Art

Surprisingly the Pentax 645Z is labeled the ugliest camera ever even over the GFX

Auto White Balance Testing
1. Canon
2. Fujifilm & Pentax tie

Sharpness
1. Fujifilm obviously way ahead and sharp edge to edge
2. Pentax did well for how old it is
3. Canon was surprisingly soft, but the sigma can be sharper than the Pentax stopped down

Autofocus
1. Canon
2. Fujifilm hunted a little in low light
3. Pentax had trouble

Subject Isolation
1. Canon
2. Fujifilm & Pentax tie

Dynamic Range
1. Pentax protected detail and better noise
2. Fujifilm close second with a little more noise
3. Sony a7RII lots of color noise but can get close to the Fujifilm with aggressive noise reduction
DNF. Canon not tested because it sucks

Other
Fujifilm Screen on the top is amazing
Fujifilm a little bit of VF lag, but very good in quality
Pentax is the most user-friendly

From a practical perspective, the Fujifilm GFX 50S is the winner because of it’s ability to use so many great lenses via tilt-shift etc… You can watch the full video review below.
