Fujifilm GFX 50S Body Final Thoughts

"Is a bit of work."

Fast or continuous autofocus. The second problem is the focusing controls. That's why I replaced the stock lens caps with Fujifilm equivalents. Low Light video is very well done. The first day owning it I was taking amazing shots on Auto mode.
