Fujifilm is shaking up its medium format camera range, ditching the last of its 50MP models to concentrate solely on its 102Mp GFX 100 range.

The cheapest entry-level Fujifilm GFX 50S II might be gone, then, but for now at least the ‘old’ GFX 100S stays on sale and becomes the cheapest route into the GFX system. It’s worth pointing out that the GFX 100S models, even the new one, are cheaper now than many full frame cameras, and the Hasselblad alternatives, including the Hasselblad X1D II 50C and X2D 100C are more expensive.
