The feel of any camera in one's hands is paramount to enjoying shooting with it. The GFX 50S really delivers the goods in this area! Size and weight just feel right for anyone used to shooting 35mm with DSLR's

But great feel and usability would be meaningless if the images don't live up to expectations. Our early impressions working with the GFX 50S images have put smile on our face and John touches on this and explains some of the comparison tests he has run against the leading high resolution DSLR's and their top tier 24-70mm lenses.

These counterfeit products have neither  been designed nor manufactured by Canon, yet they fraudulently display the Canon logo and other Canon trademarks, and, as illegal products, they infringe on Canon Inc.'s trademark rights.

Leica S2 - Nick Rains

This is one amazing camera.

I think of it of the Aston Martin of cameras, it's a beautiful piece of industrial art and the quality of build is unlike any other camera I have ever seen, including my wonderful Ebony 4x5 camera.

It's heavy, but not unpleasantly so, and this is due to the robust construction. Leica claim that it is almost waterproof and demonstrate putting it under a running tap.
