The medium format cameras are expensive and they are not budget-friendly. The most affordable camera on the market right now is the Pentax 645z. It costs $7,000 with no lens. The rumors had previously stated that the price for the Fujifilm GFX 50s will be $ 8,000. The kit comes with a 63mm standard prime lens.

Fuji’s new system will include 6 new FUJINON GF lenses in the first place. The first three lenses will be the GF 63mm F2.8 R WR, a GF 32-64mm F4R LM WR and GF 120mm F4 Macro. These lenses are also expected in early 2017. The 0.79x crop means these are a 50mm, 25-50mm and 95mm equivalent, respectively. These lenses will be followed by a GF 23mm F4 R LM WR and GF 110mm F2 in Mid 2017 and a GF 45mm F2.8 R WR in late 2017.
