Could this level of IQ be matched by FF?

Hi everyone,

This is a follow up to the post I made yesterday This article??? Thanks for the responses/feedback to that post, a lot of shared insightful remarks. In response to that dpreview article "Fujifilm GFX50R vs Full Frame", I had to make this thread.

I do not want to go with numbers but would rather have some qualitative feedback about the following photograph (see below), and my question is rather simple: Could this level of IQ be matched by FF*? Let us have a cordial conversation, and be kind with each other.

* specially Canon 5DSr / Nikon D850/Z7. Those cameras have the highest MP count for FF camera.

I am looking forward to the responses.



To do so, I am posting the photo (in small resolution 1400 pixels max), and a 100% crop of the in-focus face of the person so that you get the idea of the general IQ at 100%.

EXIF: GFX50R, f/5.6, 1/640s, ISO 100, 63 mm

Additional note: the raw was processed and converted to tif via C1 with standard settings.  The tif was later converted to jpg (level 12) via PS CS6.

Here is the whole frame

Here is the 100% crop (full face), make sure to download/view file at 100%
