The Fuji GF670 is back in Stock at Bhphoto. This is a rare chance to get one of the best cameras ever made. I know it’s a film camera a not digital. But I do own the Mamiya 7 and I still enjoy every second with it. No digital camera can beat that 6x7cm image quality.

UPDATE: Dpreview just published their X1D firs impressions review. And the X1D seems to have an edge over the GFX when it comes to Dynamic range:
This greater definition in deep shadows allows the X1D to surpass the Fujifilm GFX 50S in extremely pushed, base ISO shots. Bill Claff’s independent analyses confirm the 0.08 EV advantage in base ISO (photographic) dynamic range over the GFX, and the X1D’s lower read noise.
