GFX 50 vs GFX 100, some good info from Jim Kasson
4

Now that the GFX 100S is around, it may make some sense to look at some experience based on the GFX 100.

Jim Kasson has written a lot of articles on the GFX 100 here are some:

Sharpness

This article compares sharpness between the GFX 50 and the GFX 100:

https://blog.kasson.com/gfx-100/fujifilm-gfx-100-sharpness-compared-to-gfx-50s/

The article may be a bit theoretical, but what Jim discusses is that the microlens design of the GFX 50S/R actually yields similar sharpness to the GFX 100, or even a bit sharper detail.

Around 95 lp/mm the GFX 50 is a bit sharper than the GFX 100. But the GFX 100 is able to resolve more detail.

My thoughts

It may seem that Jim's approach is a bit analytical. But Jim knows what he is writing about.

My personal take on the GFX 100S?

Would I buy into another medium format camera, the GFX 100S would make most sense.

But, I don't feel any urge to go medium format, again.

Best regards

Erik
