Potential benefits of GFX 100S - what is your take?

Hi,

Now that the GFX 100S is around the corner, what benefits are to expect?

What I see is:

  • The increase in megapixels will increase resolution at medium apertures, so the sensor can capture more detail.
  • Aliasing effects will be much reduced.
  • There will probably be a slight increase in SNR due to newer sensor technology.
  • The new sensor will give higher DR at medium ISO-s due to DR-Pix (dual gain) technology.
  • Acutance may increase, or it may not, depending on the fill factor chosen by Fuji.
  • PDAF will increase focusing speed and probably also AF reliability. 
  • In body stabilization will be helpful in handheld photography but may cause some banding in oddball situations.
  • Faster frame rate and better AF will be helpful in capturing action.

Best regards

Erik
