For many of us, medium format cameras can seem like a very expensive pipe dream, but this technology is slowly becoming more affordable – starting with the Fujifilm GFX 50R, which has received an incredible $1,000 discount. This means that you can now pick it up for only $3,499.95. However, what good is a camera without a lens? Luckily, the 50mm f/3.5 R LM WR lens has received a 50% discount in the US, taking it from $999.95 to just $499.95.
