The in-body OIS system is smaller and lighter, however Fujifilm actually says it must slightly surpass the GFX 100’s with as much as six stops of stabilization for the majority of lenses. This is all thanks to an upgraded gyro sensing unit and improved algorithms, according to the business.

The GFX 100 S will be readily available in March for $5,99995 Fujifilm is also releasing a brand-new medium format lens that month, an 80 mm f/1.7 that ought to do a little to resolve concerns over the absence of fast options for the GFX system. It’ll cost $2,29995
