The Fujifilm GFX medium-format was announced last September but with no news of its pricing or availability. Now, we know both. But not content with launching awhole newsystem, Fujifilmalso launched two cameras and an X-series lens. A new service scheme aimed at professional photographers was also unveiled. Let’s start with the GFX 50S. This 51.4-megapixel medium-format camera will be available fromMarch at £6199 body only with the GF63mm f/2.8 standard lens at £1399. Two other lenses will also be available, the GF32-64mm f/4 wide-

angle zoom and the GF120mm f/4 macro telephoto at £1399 and £2599 respectively. We have a detailed hands-on report on the GFX 50S in this issue. The X-series gained a new member in the form of the X-T20. This 24.3-megapixel camera will be in the shops from late Februarywith a body price of £799 and in a kit with the 18-55mm f/2.8-4 for £1099. It’s essentially a smaller, lighter, cheaper and slightly less well specified X-T2. A new lens for the X-series is the XF50mm f/2 R WR. Giving a 35mm format equivalent of 76mm, this is a short

telephoto in the style of the existing 23mm f/2 and 35mm f/2 giving users the option of a smaller, more portable but still fast lens. The XF50mm f/2 will be in the shops from late February at a price of £449. Last, but by no means least, is the Fujifilm X100F, a premium compact with a 24.3-megapixel APS-C sensor that offers high-quality still and video capture together with great handling. The X100F will be available from 16 February and the guide price is £1249.
