UPDATE: Previously set to be announced in August, the Fujifilm GFX 50S II will now be announced on 02 September – along with a new lens, the Fujinon GF 35-70mm f/4.5-5.6.

The Fujifilm GFX 50S II will, obviously, be the successor to the original Fujifilm GFX 50S. While it will reportedly retain the current model's 50MP medium format image sensor, it will inherit both the chassis and in-body image stabilization system of the new Fujifilm GFX 100S, and could come in around $4,000.
