GFX 50SII has different ISO gain approach than GFX 50s, 50R

This post only applies to raw shooters.

One of the things I like about the GFX 50R and GFX 50S was that when the ISO setting got to the point where increasing gain was no longer reducing input-referred read noise, the camera would stop increasing gain and tell the raw developer to apply the gain in post.

This maximized headroom with no ill effects.

According to Bill Claff's website, the GFX 50SII doesn't do that:

I think that's a step backwards.
