Fujifilm GFX 50S verdict
It’s unrealistic to expect a large-sensor camera to match the autofocus and continuous shooting performance of a full-frame or APS-C camera, but the GFX 50S takes a massive step towards that, bringing with it the beautiful fluidity of big-sensor images and superb resolution.
Fujifilm GFX 50S competition
Canon EOS 5DS
The EOS 5DS’s blend of resolution, size and affordability looks unlikely to be beaten soon, but it also demands the very best lenses.
The slim X1D is a very different beast to the GFX, but it delivers the same style of big-sensor image quality at a similar price point.
We loved the 645Z for its SLR-style handling, but prices have stayed high and the GFX and Hasselblad X1D make it look bulky.
