Hello everyone,

Just checking water and see what everyone's opinion is. So I sold my GFX 50S with Steelsring EF-GFX Adapter and the Sigma 85mm F/1.4 EX HSM. And now the Guy is saying if I want, he will exchange it again with my Sony A7R IV + Sony Planar T* FE 50mm F/1.4 ZA and also give me around $1200 cash.

I already have GFX 100, so what would you do if you were in my shoe? Exchange or politely decline?

Let's see what everyone thinks of this. Thanks in advance.


Presumably, you bought the a7RIV for a reason. What was the reason? Is there any circumstance in which having both a GFX 100 and a GFX 50S would be helpful to you? What circumstance(s)? Weigh those two answers against each other.



I would always feel comfortable with a backup. So, I essentially always carry backup gear. But, I have been shooting for like 50 years and had just one gear failure.

That said, I always feel that having two bodies instead of one is a good thing.

Best regards
