I'm considering using a GFX 50S to shoot weddings, but only if it's cost effective. Should I expect that it would last twice as long as a 5D Mark IV? Or that repair costs would not be substantial?

Using ebay, the price of the GFX is roughly double.

What do you want to achieve with the gfx that you can't do now? Thats really the question you need to ask. Then you need to ask how much is that "______"worth per shoot.

My goal is to get the 100. I'm trying to decide whether I want to use the 50S as a stepping stone, because then I can purchase lenses for the GFX systems and not have to purchase any more for the EF systems while waiting to get the funds for the 100.
