The Fujifilm GFX 50R will be available from November with a recommended selling price of $4500.
Fujifilm has also announced a GF 50mm F3.5 ‘pancake’ lens, shown here in mockup form at Photokina 2018.
Alongside the announcement, Fujifilm also added a 40mm-equivalent ‘pancake’-style 50mm F3.5 lens to its lineup. This lens won’t arrive until 2019 but should pair well with the (comparatively) compact 50R body.
