Fujifilm GFX 50S review

The GFX 50S is beautiful and, believe it or not, affordable for a medium format model

Why you can trust Digital Camera World Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out how we test.

On paper, the GFX 50S and Fujinon GF 63mm f/2.8 R WR lens combination looks no bigger or heavier than a serious 35mm full-frame camera. If you put it side-by-side with a Nikon D810, the two look similar in size and bulk. But when you pick it up, it feels like a much larger camera.

It offers a comfortable hold, though, with enough height in the front grip for you to get three fingers around it, with your index finger resting over the shutter release button, and your thumb against a large protrusion on the back and resting on the rear control dial. If we gave cameras ratings for their grip alone, this would get five stars.
