Fujifilm Goes Medium Format with New GFX 50S Mirrorless ILC, and Three new Fujinon GF Medium Format Lenses

GFX_50S_Front+EVF+VG-GFX1_1000px.jpgFujifilm has just released information about an impressive new Medium Format ILC camera, dubbed the GFX 50S. Sporting a huge 43.8x32.9mm "Fujifilm G Format" CMOS image sensor - that's about 1.7x the size of a 35mm Full Frame sensor - the GFX 560S is able to provide a whopping 51.4-megapixels of resolution. These massive image files are processed using their X Processor Pro, which is the same processor used in their popular X-Pro2 and X-T2 camera models.

Although this is a rather large ILC camera, Fuji is claiming that the GFX 50S is about 60% smaller than your typical Medium Format DSLR, which is thanks to its lightweight magnesium alloy construction and use of a mirrorless mount system.

These lenses offer 35mm equivalent views of 50mm, 25-51mm, and 95mm; respectively.
