Fujifilm GFX 50R is now available in the Philippines!

Back in 2017, Fujifilm shocked the world with their announcement of the GFX 50S, a SLR style Medium Format camera at PHP 366,990 (or USD 5,499 + Tax for the body only) compared to the competition with the same sensor like the Mamiya Leaf Credo 50 that starts at USD 23,995 (or PHP 1.26 Million + Tax for the body only). Within those two years, Fujifilm was able to release 7 lenses with three more to be release by 2020.

In late 2018, Fujifilm announced globally the GFX 50R, a smaller and lighter version of the GFX 50s but in a rangefinder style body at a mere 775 grams with battery and SD card. 

It has the same 51.4MP, 43.8mm x 32.9mm sensor and X-Processor Pro as the GFX 50S but with a fixed 3.69M-Dot 0.77x OLED EVF and a 2-way tilt 3.2" 2.36m-dot tilting touchscreen LCD that displays 100 percent of the image frame.

It takes advantage of the Fujifilm G-Mount that has access to the aforementioned 7 lenses and the 3 upcoming lenses.

Pictured above is the GF 45mm f/2.8 R WR lens with a 36mm full frame field of view equivalent but only ways at only 490 grams.
