Official: Fujifilm GFX 50S Medium Format Announced! Sep 19, 2016
Fuji GFX 50S Medium Format Digital System is on it's way...
Just in time for our new Fuji board!

Fujifilm is back in the Medium Format business. Even though their APS-C digital system is successful, many of us still hoped that a full frame mirrorless camera was somewhere on the company's drawing board. Instead they surprised us all with a very bold move, announcing the development of a medium format body using Sony's 51.4MP sensor, which is four-times the size of their current APS-C sensor. The official announcement by Fuji of the development of the GFX 50S, Fuji's first mirrorless medium format camera, reminds us that this brand - that once had a strong position with film medium format cameras, is back to play in the big leagues.

It uses a similar version of the same 51.4MP sensor used by many companies including Hasselblad H6D-50c, X1D, Pentax 645z and Phase One IQ350. Compared to full frame, this sensor is about 1.7x larger, has a 4x3 format and its lenses have a crop factor of 0.79x.

The camera looks slightly heavier and bigger than the announced Hasselblad X1D mirrorless but it gains in adaptability since it has a focal plane shutter. There is a 26.7mm registration distance and its EVF viewfinder is removable.

Fuji announced the development of six lenses by the end of 2017. The first three lenses will be released at beginning of 2017. They are the GF 63mm F2.8 R WR, a GF32-64mm F4R LM WR and GF 120mm F4 Macro. (~50mm, 25-50mm and 95mm full frame equiv.)
These will be followed by a GF23mm F4 R LM WR and GF110mm F2 in Mid 2017 and a GF45mm F2.8 R WR in late 2017 (~18mm, 100mm and 35mm equiv.)

Fujifilm says its target price for the GFX 50S with 63mm standard prime will be 'well under $10,000'.
