Fuji says “You will be amazed by the image quality of GFX100 coupled with GF lenses”

We are eagerly waiting if the new Fuji GFX100 camera will finally be capable to clearly outperform the Full Frame competition. So far it’s hard to rationally justify the price difference. Fujirumors spotted a new Fuji interview done by Pixel Village and Fuji clearly stated that:

You will be amazed by the image quality of GFX 100 coupled with GF lenses

Here are some more info reposted from Fujirumors:

APS-C vs FF

  • Thanks to APS-C as opposed to FF, the overall cost of the system is lower
  • Fujifilm has no plans to go full frame
  • APS-C has the potential to get more than 26 megapixel, and Fujifilm will look for “opportunities” to go higher in terms of megapixel
  • Megapixel is not everything. Fujifilm should look also at dynamic range, ISO sensitivity and overall image quality
  • Image quality is determinated not only by sensor size, but also by glass
  • Full Frame glass is becoming bigger, heavier and more expensive. APS-C lenses are smaller, bright enough and more affordable

GFX System

  • current 44×33 GFX sensor is more than enough to deliver the best image quality
  • No need to make a camera with even bigger sensor. Would have little benefits in terms of IQ, and big downsides in terms of size, weight and costs
  • Current GFX sensor is 70% larger than full frame
  • You will be amazed by the image quality of GFX 100 coupled with GF lenses
