Everyday monster?

Fujifilm GFX 50R

In short: it’s the same sensor and image quality as the GFX 50S in a rangefinder-style body and without the protruding box at the back.

After a very brief second sojourn into Leica territory with the M10, I thought better of it and traded in for the 50R. Initially I found it a little unbalanced, but using the smaller GF lenses (63/2.8, 50/3.5, etc.) or adapted manual lenses work great. For larger lenses, I have an L-bracket that includes an extended grip to help out.

While quite a bit bigger than an M10, the 50R isn’t that much heavier and so it works pretty nicely with adapted manual lenses. The EVF and focus peaking are excellent. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the GFX 50R and it’s my go-to camera of the past couple of years.
