The price is really good when you compare it to the Phase One. All their current GF lenses are compatible. It's a tool and if your making money with it, price is not an issue. I bought the GFX50R and a few jobs paid for it. It is a wonderful image producer but not a camera you would grab for a soccer game per say. Landscape, product, and portrait is where it shines. Technically, you could use it for anything but not the best tool. If you compare the price to others in its class, its a super value for a medium format system camera. They are also adding a couple more zooms to the line up.
Well ... there is no way I would spent $10k on ANYTHING else but this if I had them "spare".
I would need a bit more than that so I could also get the Fujinon GF 45mm f2.8, though.
P.s.: First reports indicate you CAN use this camera for sports, which is an absolute first for medium format.
In digital or general?
Graflex has that one beat by about 90 years.
Okay, correction: first to have autofocus at a level to consider it for sports.
Crazy skills with manual focus not considered.
I have SERIOUS G.A.S.!
Haha me to.
I read that yesterday as well (for sports). I could only image the IQ of that coupled with the GF250 and 1.4TC. I doubt the focus system will rival the DSLR 850
Oh now that was quick.
From "first medium format ever that can be seriously considered for shooting sports" to "medium format that rivals the best DSLR autofocus systems out there".
Besides, even if that was the case, the GFX system doesnt really have the glas for sports anyway. They have a 100-200/5.6, which is something like a 80-160mm full frame equiv, and a 250/4, which is about 200mm full frame equiv, and thats already the maximum they offer in respect to telephoto lenses.
