Fujifilm just unveiled the latest addition to its GFX medium format camera line: the GFX50S II. The Fujifilm GFX50S II features a 51.4MP medium-format sensor, in-body image stabilization (IBIS) and the company’s X-Processor 4.

The new Fujifilm GFX50S II is similar in size and design to the relatively compact 102MP Fujifilm GFX100S, which was announced earlier this year, effectively becoming that camera’s lower resolution twin. The Fujifilm GFX50S II will also be less expensive than the GFX100S, retailing for $3999, when it goes on sale on October 21, 2021. The GFX100S sells for $5999.
