Re: Hug your GFX 50S today!

Well I have pulled the trigger and pre-ordered a R5 yesterday as soon as I could

That made sense to me (less to my wallet, no sense at all to the SWMBO) because I am a dual system user like many here... In my case specifically Canon and Hasselblad / PhaseOne.

My 1D X (mk I) was showing its age. Oh it still works perfectly (and it should since it is seriously built like a tank) but I found more and more that I was unhappy with resolution, DR and, yes, AF.

So the R5 looks like it will improve on everything and it will still work with my remaining EF lenses. The R6 was never a contender for me due to resolution.

This hasn't changed anything for me in terms of MF usage. My Hassy / P1 rig will continue to be used for what I consider my "serious" photography (i.e. fashion) - yes Greg I am in your camp: I do see the differences between images shot with FF and the ones with MF. These differences may not matter / be invisible to others, but they matter to me

I still want an FF for traveling / kids photography: the ergonomics / convenience / AF / speed are on a different planet... I did bring my MF to a recent vacation since a friend who joined us wanted to see the "beast"... and I did get some great pics of my and his daughter playing in the water which came out real nice... but it is still a pain to carry around and I had to manual focus when the kids were not staying still (i.e. all the time)
