You could easily (and I frequently do) make the same exact argument for APS-C vs FF.
Modern sensors have gotten to the point where we're honestly just splitting hairs. You can create beautiful professional images consistently with M43's these days, the format war should have ended years ago, but too many people are obsessed with 1:1+ views. Just my $0.02.
What is the need for a Fuji medium format then? They are in the arena with big companies playing the mega pixel race and medium format performance.
I'm not a pixel peeper. If you talked to me 10yrs ago I was extremely critical but now I am critical when I buy new lenses for my mirrored bodies. Once I deem a lens perfect I do not pixel peep. When I buy new lenses for Fuji I just blindly have faith that it's perfect
I wonder if the only Fuji users buying medium format needs them for billboards. Otherwise I do not fully understand why Fuji jumped in if the current system fully meets all of the requirements?? There are Stock photo photographers using full frame and I guess crop sensors too. I'm just curious to see sales numbers for the new Fuji medium format camera. I guess it's a budget medium format camera for serious studios that do not want to spend PhaseOne or Hassie sticker prices. Even so I cannot see the GFX surpassing sales that much since Medium format is quite a niche system in it's infancy.
I just know many like the fuji render. The world is interesting as very few print. So far viewing alot of fuji forums and websites I see maybe 90-95%?????? artistic nature not heavily weighted for events photographers. Perhaps the entire draw to fuji is this type of photography is more specific?
Again a camera is just a tool for specific needs for individuals application. Many applications in the world of photography.
