Re: GFX50R vs Pro3

If you mostly shoot in low light it may not be a bad deal given the low light AF improvements. Photonstophotos place the X-pro3 ahead of the GFX50R.

In good light, the 50R+50 is a wow and you will miss the output, especially after the new firmware upgrade.

yes if the light is good the images from the GFX50R are fantastic. BUT and that's a big "but" which leads me to trading it in: I lose around 3-4 stops of light when photographing the same low light scene with the GFX vs. my X-Pro2 or X-H1. 2 stops to get to the same effective depth of field, 1-2 stops to counter motion blur (due to higher MP count). So in total let's say 3.5 stops. The GFX has a higher high ISO tolerance of around 1 stop, so we end up with a 2.5 stop deficit which means for me no hands free photography in the twilight zone. and to be honest the image quality improvement is not "that" dramatic ... see here
