Fujifilm GFX 50S II Review: Who Is This Camera For?

Fujifilm GFX 50SII

Fujifilm’s new GFX 50S II is the company’s most affordable medium format camera, but does the performance make it a worthwhile purchase when there are full frame cameras available with similar resolutions? This review seeks to find out.

Chris Niccolls and Jordan Drake of DPReview TV run you through the features on Fujifilm’s newest camera, updating its four-year-old predecessor. The GFX 50S II promises faster performance and a more streamlined design, and incorporates up to 6.5 stops of image stabilization. The larger dimensions and weight of both the body and the lenses make this a welcome addition, and it will almost certainly add even broader appeal to a format that was once far more niche than it is today.

Many of the major camera manufacturers are facing supply issues, with various recently released models out of stock, largely due to the global chip shortage. As noted last week by Fuji Rumors, the GFX 100S was announced more than seven months ago, and yet, it’s still not on the shelves of major retailers. It might not have the broad appeal of your average full frame mirrorless camera, but those waiting to get their hands on this $6,000 body will need to be patient.

Is this camera designed with you in mind? Let us know in the comments below.
