I have had a bit more time now with the GFX-100 and I am really enjoying the ability to crop in to images and enlarge the subject like never before. It is like a magnifying glass to the world.

I have a first impression review with more images here.

The built in sensor stabilisation is very helpful when you can’t use a tripod. It is often necesary to get down very low and slowly move around the subject so being free from a tripod really helps a lot.

Here are some of the images from the last week. They are all cropped heavily from the full frame and still retain a lot of detail.
I used the GF120 f/4 and the GF250 f/4 + GF1.4TC for these.

This first image is the full frame.

  1. Hello Mads, Stunning images and just what I was looking for to convince me that the GFX100 is the way to go. I have the GFX50R at the moment and I can still crop pretty severely and retain plenty of resolution but I think the GFX100 would be
    incredibly flexible, especially with macro and wildlife.
    How do you find the IBIS when working with the GF250mm and 1.4TC?



    1. Hell Mark,
      The GFX-100 is amazing. You will love it, I think.
      IBIS works great with all the lenses. I use the GF250 + TC all the time and mostly handheld. The lens has OIS on its own, but the combination with IBIS is super. You don’t get to choose just the lens OIS or IBIS, it is either on or off for both. Some have said that the lens OIS is not contributing when IBIS is on, but the lens OIS motor certainly spins up so I don’t know.
      If you are mounted on a tripod or using fast shutter speeds of 1/1600 and above, you may want to turn IBIS off.
