Not to be outdone by the number of full-frame mirrorless cameras being announced at Photokina 2018, Fujifilm has revealed the next "Super Full Frame" camera to join its GFX 50S. 

The new GFX 50R will be 25mm thinner and 145g lighter than its big brother. And it will be a lot cheaper too, with an anticipated price of $4,500 before tax when it goes on sale in November 2018.
