    Looks great, but I blew my camera budget at the end of last year.

    I wish they'd bring these things out before the end of the year.

    I know what you mean....still, I'm surprised they're making it available so soon after the Photokina announcement in September.

    It's been in development for some time. I'd absolutely love to use one for my landscapes and even with it's excellent Medium Format pricing and Fuji MF heritage behind it - I simply cannot afford it!

    It really is a sign of how things will go. Medium Format relatively expensive but accessible before digital. Until now, Digital MF has been a niche due to it's pricing. Although it's not a 'true' 645 MF sensor size, it's still impressive that they've kept the pricing so low.

    I hope the GFX changes the industry and makes MF accessible again.

    Yeah, I love Fuji Medium Format (still have a couple laying around) and found them to be some of the best quality
    and most innovative Medium Format cameras available.

    Interesting to see some of the accessories they're proposing, which will make this a very good system for Pros.

    If this had been available in December, I could have justified it, but it wasn't, so the money went elsewhere.

    Still, I'll be watching closely next year.
