medium format vs full frame
« on: December 26, 2018, 12:46:12 PM »
Hello,

I am a new camera bits forum user and would like to start a thread on this. I am looking at the Fuji Medium format and also the Canon 5dsr and would like you guys opinions.

Thanks,

Duane

I am certainly more of a 5dsr type of guy but that may just be because I am so heavily invested in canon gear. I say save a bit of cash and go with the 5dsr.

I'm in the same boat about going medium format. I love the look of the GFX 50 series but with the 100 around the corner and the Canon's being a couple of years old now, it may be better to wait until late 2019.

I'm curios to see if they'll update the sensor in the Fuji 50 series as well.

Just keep shooting.

I have the 5DsR and I love it. I'm sure I'd feel the same way about the Fuji too. But investing in a whole new system just doesn't seem worth it for any perceived difference in IQ or UX. All my equipment and workflow is built around Canon. It will take a lot to get me to move.

Although I'm not well versed on medium format I've always admired the look.  However, for myself I'd be concerned about usability outdoors.

Although the 5DsR is in a DSLR format, I get the feeling it is intended solely as a studio camera. Its high ISO performance is noticeably worse than the 5D4, and it takes quite a while to start up. If you want a general purpose DSLR, the 5DsR is probably not it.
