When the 36MP Nikon D800 was originally released in 2012, it was hailed as the “medium format killer”. Well, medium format has not only survived, but seems to be thriving. It’s even started to make its way into slightly less expensive markets thanks to the introduction of the Hasselblad X1D and Fujifilm GFX 50S. They’re both 50MP cameras, but how do they compare to a 50MP 35mm sized sensor DSLR?
That’s what this brief review of the GFX 50S and comparison with the Canon 5DS R from photographer Daniel Jannes is all about. To see if there really is much of a difference. And, if there is a difference, is it enough to justify almost double the cost?
