I'll never take a picture that would pay for this camera.

Medium Format is really just an entirely different animal, no one is using these things for high speed sports, etc. The MP count doesn't even matter as much - the sensor on this is just much larger than the A7RIV. You definitely need to know WHY you're buying an MF though, not just grabbing one because it is expensive. They are great for product/commercial photos, landscape, portraits, but I agree, the vast majority of people have no need for one.

I own a GFX 50S (along with the 23, 32-64, 50, and 110mm GF lenses), I'm somewhat partial to the controls and grip design of that camera vs the 50R (particularly when shooting with the 110mm f/2 or when adapting larger telephoto lenses), although in terms of IQ and speed of operation and such, the cameras are largely the same.

This is a pretty decent price for the 50R, but you really have to know what you are getting into. Autofocus on these bodies is limited to contrast detect - one-shot AF is pretty quick and very accurate, but continuous AF is not good, I just avoid that mode altogether. Combined with the slight lag in the EVF during live view and focus-by-wire native lenses, shooting fast moving subjects with this camera is not a strong point. Pretty much every modern 35mm and APS-C camera will run circles around the 50R/50S when it comes to both burst rate and tracking autofocus. Don't get me wrong though, the image quality is fantastic, by far the cleanest and most flexible RAW files I've had opportunity to work with, and the native Fuji lenses are all superb optically (my biggest gripe about them is the minimum focus distances, they tend not to focus as close as I would like). The camera is great for genres like landscapes, studio portraiture, architecture. It's built like a tank, too, my 50S has been rock solid reliable over the past 3 or so years of ownership.

Worth mentioning that the slickest deal in Fuji's current collection of GFX/GF promotions is the GF 50mm f/3.5 lens, which is currently on sale for $500, down from $1000. This is the first time it's been on sale since release last year. It's a great starting point for new GFX users, as it is the cheapest and most compact lens in the GF lens lineup.

As for the other lenses, wait for them to go on sale, Fuji has run $500 off promotions for pretty much every lens in the lineup at some point.

This is a great deal. I'd love to have one of these but I really don't have the budget for a $3500 MF camera + lenses.

Kudos to anyone who is able to get in on it!

my current pc will take about 4seconds just to flip to the next jpg.

Fantastic camera for those who can use it to increase their profits or just have enough cash up upgrade their hobby. Pixel peeping is fun with the files from Fuji's medium format.

damn only as expensive as the a7riv - not on sale.

crazy. and lens prices are actually quite comparable to high quality glasses from any of the FF manufacturers.

Medium format... so potentially insane bokeh?

Great price for a medium format, too bad I'm heavily invested in the Sony full frame mirrorless system.

From the reviews, 50R misses focus all the time. If the subject barely moves, the pictures may not be sharp. 3FPS autofocus. A7rIV is up to 20 now. The obvious benefit is the super smooth bokeh and transition area with medium format.

But as an enthusiast, it certainly is very enticing to own a medium format.

For those want to see size comparison.

Sensor size seems to correlate with autofocus performance, though obviously not the only variable , that's my personal experience.

Bruh, it might be time to update your hardware to a $500 prebuilt.
