My reply may not be as reliable as I don't own a GFX100s. However, reasons for selling may vary - financial re-org, consoldating to fewer systems, or just didn't suit personal styles/need/application. Some may want to try different things. GFX100s is not alone, happened after 6-8 months of release to many high-interest models/brands such as Sony A9, A1, Canon R5, R6,.... Likely will happen for Sony A7iv in a couple of months. At some stage, there were so many Leica Q2s on sale. Good to have supply of used products for the value-savvy folks.

AF being slower and then people realizing they need to keep two systems.

I bought the GFX 100s and I really loved shooting with it, but it was also heavier in my backpack than I liked while hiking out for landscape photography, and the lack of any practical to carry lens that would reach past 200 was a real issue for me. I was carrying the 45/2.8, 23/4, and 100-200, and it felt pretty crappy. Compare this to carrying a Canon R5, RF 14-35/4 and RF 100-400 and itís much lighter.

I sold the GFX 100s and thought I wouldnít look back.

However, I ended up looking back. And I recently reacquired the GFX 100s after spending some time looking through some of my photos from last year and playing around with reprocessing them, they are just so beautiful.

This time Iím giving it a go with just the 32-64, and Iíll leave the more extreme focal lengths to my other cameras.

No idea, would never sell mine if I had one. *shrug*

And yes medium format is slow. Speed is not a priority for medium format. That said, properly used the GFX 100 S should be perfectly fast enough for doing sports with decent hit rate.

I have a 100s and a the Nikon Z9. I only pick up the Z9 when I shoot sports or anything that is a fast paced type of shoot. My preference is the 100s and use it for all of my commercial shoots. I even use it for travel with the family that is how much I like the files out of that camera.
