It’s hard to believe that you can buy a mirrorless Medium Format camera for less than the price of most full-frame cameras on the market. Believe it, though, because, for a short time, the Fujifilm GFX 50R can be yours for $2,999. What a steal!

The Fujifilm GFX 50R was one of the first Fujifilm medium format cameras to hit the market that appealed to the masses. The Rangefinder-styler design resonated instantly with photographers who love stylish cameras, and let’s face it, the 50R just looked so much better than the GFX 50S that preceded it. The Fujifilm GFX 50R isn’t just a camera with a pretty face, though. No, the GFX 50R packs a punch when it comes to specs. Let’s take a look at them.
