My eyes have been opened (GFX50R)
15

Fujifilm were kind enough to send me the GFX 50R and two lenses (45/63 f/2.8's) for evaluation. In less than a day with the 50R I've concluded that I don't want to shoot with FF again.

This is my first thorough experience with Digital "medium format" equipment.

I'll just say it like this, the very first image that I zoomed in on at 100% -made my jaw drop. I don't think there's ever been a moment in the last 12 years of doing camera reviews that was as impactful as that moment.

Nothing but impressed with the quality of the raw images etc. after that. The edge to edge quality, the depth of range, color, tones, contrast- in completely different league. This not news to anyone who has been using this format in digital before of course.

I'll be doing a full write up in more detail, but just wanted to stop by and say "now I get it...". And yeah I'll be getting myself into MF- no doubt.

Cheers!

Carl
