Digital Camera World Verdict

The Fujifilm GFX 100 is not just the medium format camera to beat, taking the large sensor camera to new heights, but is up there with the best cameras full stop. Fujifilm has thrown everything in its toolbox into this camera, featuring a sensor that has been redesigned to be the fastest medium format camera sensor yet. Paired with the X-Processor 5 which has already proved itself in Fujifilm’s latest X-Series cameras, this is next-level autofocus for this size of sensor, with face, eye, animal, and vehicles recognized and tracked. The design has also been defined for the better, losing the vertical grip from the prior model, it has allowed the camera to be not much larger than some of the best full frame cameras. This has resulted in a camera that not only has some of the best image quality I have ever seen but is also an absolute joy to use. I have never been more tempted to buy a camera I have tested.

It's only been a few short years since Fujifilm began its journey to push its own vision of exactly what a medium format camera should be. After decades of medium format being large, boxy, and heavy cameras for high-end professionals, the Fujifilm GFX 50S and GFX 50R brought medium format (almost) to the masses with not only a body size that rivaled DSLRs and even some mirrorless cameras, but also at a price that significantly undercut the competition.

Fujifilm is certainly not alone in revolutionizing medium format cameras, industry stalwarts Hasselblad were the first to create a more compact medium format system with the Hasselblad X1D-50c, although Hassleblad’s system didn’t come close to touching the affordability of Fujifilm’s cameras.
