Does the Fujifilm GFX 100 II make the GFX 100S obsolete?

Fujifilm has pulled off quite a coup with the GFX 100 II. It’s taken a camera that we thought could hardly be any better – the GFX 100S – and made one that’s not just better, but a LOT better. So does that mean the older GFX 100S is finished? Not quite.

When the Fujifilm GFX 100S was announced back in January 2021, we were taken aback. We imagine the whole world was. Here was a medium format camera with phase detect AF, IBIS and 4K video, rivaling anything that full frame mirrorless cameras could do at a time when medium format cameras were still expected to be slow, heavy and expensive.
