After plenty of rumors about the affordable and compact Fujifilm GFX 50R and the 100MP GFX 100S, now it’s official: Fujifilm has launched the GFX 50R for preorders and announced the development of the GFX 100S. The GFX 50R retails for $4,500, which isn’t exactly a pocket change, but it’s still $1,350 cheaper than the Fujifilm GFX 50S.
It’s being reported by Fuji Rumors that the Fuji press event coming before Photokina opens up will be to announce a new medium format camera. The GFX 50R has been rumoured for a while now, but it seems that it’s finally coming. And it’s coming on September 25th – not the 23rd as many have been reporting.
You can tell Photokina’s coming. The announcement rumours are coming through thick and fast right now. Since the Nikon Z6/Z7 announcement, we’ve seen full frame mirrorlesss announcement rumours for Canon and Panasonic. And we’ve already seen one from Fuji for the impending X-T3.
But it looks like Fuji has another trick up their sleeve. The Fujifilm GFX 50R, a new “affordable” medium format mirrorless camera. Fuji Addict reports that it’s expected to be announced on September 23rd, and the first photo of the new camera has been leaked on Weibo.
